We would love be part of your next project or event! Our 1930’s historic Spanish style hacienda is nestled in the hills of Villa Park, also known as the Hidden Jewel of Orange County. Sweeping panoramic views boast a backdrop of beautiful golden sunsets with a reach as far as Catalina Island. Available for commercial, film and photographic production, the estate’s sense of space and expansive beauty are catalysts for the creative mind. Shady hidden walkways, lush landscaping, an oversized Spanish tiled pool, resort style Cabana, furnished clay tile courtyard with strung Edison lighting and artistically arranged potted succulents, and a rustic stone fireplace serve as dream backdrops and endless possibilities. Creatives and artists have used the grounds to produce breathtaking pictures and film (see examples). The outside grounds (but not the gated slope area) as well as lower level of the home (includes a bar area, bathroom, pool table, and lounge) are available for use and provide unique opportunities for your production. Lower level of the home serves as a perfect area for hair/makeup and craft services set up. A private circular shaped driveway leads you into the property where 12-15 cars can easily fit for your convenience.
