This enchanted, historic residence and surrounding grounds was laid down in 1895 as the center of a lemon orchard. The lemon orchard is gone but the 125 year old petite-mansion remains -fully restored to its 1895 grandeur inside and out. This location has proven to be a great location for photo shoots. House has been featured in San Diego Home and Garden magazine. House was architected by Irving Gill (noteworthy student of Frank Lloyd Wright) Trees were planted by Kate Sessions (botanist responsible and famous for her work in Balboa Park) The house is situated on a hill top that provides stunning views making for a PERFECT photo shoot backdrop. The surrounding and spacious (1.5 acre) gardens and lawns will impress -towering 125 year old trees hem in the property and provide privacy. The interior of the house is fashioned beautifully with art and furniture, including bar and pool table + multiple elegant seating arrangements for photos. Rundown: The surrounding neighborhood has fast food restaurants but is otherwise spare of amenities and is not a foodie's destination. There are stores nearby, but we recommend bringing food with you if you book several hours here. Free, on-site parking space is available for up to 3 vehicles. 10 individuals on site for photo shoot maximum. Contact host if you have a shoot with more than 10 individuals to see what conditions may apply. We are new to the Peerspace community and look forward to gathering reviews. Please leave one if you book with us. Christian Host

Christian was an amazing host! Very accommodating. We needed to add an extra 30 minutes to our time and he let us extend our time with no hesitation.

This place is beautiful! My cast and crew were amazed. Christian was a great host and pretty much left us alone so we can work and said he would be available if needed. Would definitely come back.
