A rare opportunity to spend time in a California Historic landmark. Made famous not only by it's resident-the Western writer but it's architect, Myron Hunt, designer of the Rose Bowl amongst other California landmarks. The useable space is located downstairs in the main house with access to the 5 grand rooms and the extensive grounds of the estate, which is approximately 1.5 acres. The usable interior space includes: the 400 sq. ft. living room with the original, working walk-in fireplace, the 300 sq. ft grand dining room, a 1000 sq. ft commercial kitchen (this kitchen was formally home to the celebrated Institute Of Domestic Technology), the 250 sq. ft solarium that overlooks mature fruit trees. The kitchen can be rented separately, as well as the outside pizza oven. This is a custom made pizza oven and can produce up to 10 pizzas every 5 minutes. We can either work with you directly and "cater" to your group and oversee the pizza production or rent it to someone who has experience with pizza ovens. The estate's grounds is available for use and includes: 1000 sq. ft. of raised vegetable beds, a large custom chicken coop, a small converted green house, a pizza oven, an old ford truck, and a 1953 Boles Aero trailer. All the rooms are furnished but can be easily stages and styled. Perfect setting for it's California History, spectacular and massively scaled Architecture.

Loved shooting at this location. The property is large and lent itself to different looks. Martha was so friendly and accommodating. She was quick to meet all of our needs. Even helped get her chickens and dog into our shoot!
Amazing space, such variety with a multitude of different looks through out. Martha was incredible and very accommodating. Was a pleasure, would definitely come back
