Share
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. Oak trees, sycamore trees, hills, big boulders, dirt roads, seasonal creeks and mountain vistas. Some of our areas: There's a rustic colorful trailer in the woods. Dirt and gravel roads A fabulous patio and pool behind the main house. Garden with two ponds, one of which is japanese style koi pond A sweeping beautiful meadow with giant oaks trees, Seasonal creek, full of rocks and boulders. Big and small bridges Open meadow with mountain backdrop Recently added is an eclectic rustic outdoor area with a yurt(exterior only) and Safari tent (interior and exterior) Also an authentic Foxhole set. Approximately 20' x10'x 4'deep A giant stilt tree branch platform. All outside spaces. We've added the property next door to us for more outside looks. Please see our pictures for ideas. On the next door property , there's a handmade abandoned whimsical troll cottage for interior/exterior shooting , as well as an Elephant barn/shed for interior and exterior shots. Other detailed listings for "Rustic Buildings-Troll Cottage & Elephant Barn" For production , we have a converted RV with power, A/C, counters, seating, mirrors, clothes rack, outdoor area. Located in the parking lot, for use as base camp and Hair & Makeup There's a Porta potty that is designated just for the productions. Also a hand washing sink with soap , hand sanitizer and paper towels . There is also a large screened pop with either A/C or heat depending on the weather. Power available and light. Comes with 6' table and 4 folding chairs. It can be used for production office, make up, holding area if you need a setup closer to the middle of the property. We have power at the trailer( center of the property). Internet at the back trailer and also down in the main parking lot. The phone service is bad unless you have Verizon and then its 'spotty. you can have Wifi calling, if you are set up for it. The back meadow and areas farther from the front will need generator power. We have two Kawasaki Mule ATV vehicles to rent for moving gear around. There are also 2 Honda generators, 2000watts and 2200watts. Jimmy jib 18' for rent also There's a huge parking lot in the front area, 25 cars. There's also parking in the back(10 cars) and access and parking to the middle areas. We ask that people carpool, but we also have overflow parking on the property in front of us. Big box trucks can only get to the parking lot. Further back we have low trees and power lines. The smaller box truck and high vans can make it to the back . We're 20 mins from 101 Freeway on a private/public road. The last 2 miles of the road are private and the road is one and half lanes wide. We must respect the neighbors that use the road. There are pull out spots, for when 2 cars meet. Please be nice and back into or pull out to the side when you can. And drive slowly as there are animals on the road too. besides the scenery is beautiful!

The site was wonderful!! Lots of variety to do different backgrounds. But the best part was Lynn and Bruce! They were so helpful. Lynn was wonderful showing us around, offering help, providing a small pop up for shade, chairs, electrical, and just being cooperative, polite, professional and really going the extra mile. I would totally recommend the site and would definitely use it again.
