Our space is a large ranch of 25 acres in the Western end of Santa Monica Mountains. We are a working creative community ranch with lots of different spaces with different looks.
The focus is the natural environment with some structures, all of our locations are outside. If you are looking for scenery with no visible buildings ,with the classic Southern California mountains look, we have it.
