Storybook Cottage- Fantasy tiny home in Topanga!

The Storybook cottage is one of numerous artistic hand-built cottages available for rental in this 13 acre park-like setting. Perfect for film and photography, the property is set back from the road with lots of rustic buildings and looks. Only 15 minutes from Santa Monica, Malibu and the Valley, it feels like you are far off in the mountains. In addition to shooting the interior of the cottage your crew can wander the property providing endless possibilities. The Storybook cottage was built by artists as a large version of a dollhouse from a film. It fits in well with the Tiny Home movement. It was more recently decorated by the artist Shrine, adding his signature curly Qs, and even broken pieces of mirror. There is dramatic outdoor staircase leading to a triangular attic space made into a bedroom all painted gold. Downstairs is a small living room, kitchen and dining room. You can’t get more iconic than the outside of this little pink cottage. The property has lots of parking. There are over 100 oak trees with sculpted rock streams covered with a total canopy of green. We also have a stone house with a fireplace which is over 100 years old. If you need a rustic and forested location this is the place. We have had directors rewrite their scripts because they fell in love with this place. Levi's-global shot here - their directive was to find a place that could be anywhere in the planet and they said this property fit that description perfectly. We have hosted many film and photo shoots here and always do our best to help them have a successful shoot.
