Great Rate. This location is $255 per/hr cheaper than similar locations in Beverly Hills.
Authentic Mid Century Modern home in Beverly Hills available for photo shoots, filming, and select events. The architect was Howard Frank, who designed many Mid Century Modern homes in Palm Springs. Built-in 1956. Roughly 5,000 sq. foot home with four bedrooms and four bathrooms on one acre — mostly flat with very large lawn. Very comfortable and private for celebrities. Other than the driveway, home and grounds cannot be viewed by neighbors. South facing with ocean view. Water features include an entry pond with floating steps, a large heatable pool, and separate infinity jacuzzi with lava rock fireplace. Extensive interior space for wardrobe, hair and makeup, production office, talent holding, etc. — motorhomes are usually unnecessary. House has high-speed wireless internet. The kitchen is mostly original, including an elaborate 1950’s era stove and formica counter tops. Ceilings are 10 feet 4 inches in main living areas. Very easy to move and store furniture and equipment via large sliding glass doors in every room. Garage sometimes holds classic cars, which are usually available for shoots. Children and animals are welcome. So are last-minute shoots, subject to availability. Easily accessible wide street with plenty of parking. Large driveway holds approximately 15 cars, or two 10-ton trucks plus generator, camera truck and restrooms for filming. On multi-day shoots, you can “walk away” at the end of each day so there is less in-and-out to disturb neighbors. There have been some minor changes since these photos were taken. The master bedroom and bathroom are usually off-limits, the wood desk in the second bedroom and the swing set are no longer there, the two gray exterior rattan chairs and ottomans have been replaced, the loose gravel portion of the driveway has been replaced with gravel locked in concrete, (which looks very similar), and some of the plantings are slightly different. Very experienced, discreet and hospitable film-producer homeowner. Great neighbors. Owner handles all contact with neighbors, including notifications, signatures, posting, etc. For filming, nearby neighbors gladly rent their driveways for crew meals and additional parking. To keep neighbors happy, owner usually refrains from loud or late-night events. Minimum Daily Rate that is shown is an estimate based on: - a non-commercial still shoot - a crew/talent size of 15 or less - 10 hour day - no street parking - all crew cars parked on the property and no production trucks in site Overall, PRICING depends on several factors, including the type of use, amount of people, and amount and type of larger vehicles. Please inquire and include and the following details about your project.

If you are considering this location; 100% book it. Best location I’ve rented to date. The host went over and above to make sure we had all we needed as well as feeling comfortable at the house on where we could shoot+ house was pristine and had everything we needed. It was the best experience on and off the set. Cannot wait to rent again.
