Unique 1927 home is now available for still photo shoots and small video shoots (fewer than 15 people). The entire ground floor and exterior is available. The house was built by silent film star Mae Marsh ("Birth of a Nation") for her family. Over the course of 50 years the legendary artisan George Ehling transformed the originally Spanish revival style home into an eclectic mosaic masterpiece. Areas available for shooting (see photographs) include the great/living room, the grand entry hall and staircase, the master bedroom (Romanesque style), the dining room furnished with a large refectory table, the kitchen, and various outdoor areas including a magnificent Roman bathhouse with a ceiling approximately 25 feet high. An outdoor holding area is available for the crew behind the house. The views to the north and east are panoramic, and include the Hollywood Sign, the Barham Pass, and Universal Studios Hollywood. The house is located on Woodrow Wilson Drive, not far from Cahuenga Blvd. Parking for one truck (up to a 27-foot cube van) is available in front of the garage. Other parking must be arranged off-site. Typically, a production will shuttle their crew and talent from a nearby lot, but it is also possible to carpool and if only one or two cars are involved, street parking can often be located to the east of the house. No staging of equipment is permitted on the sidewalk. All equipment must be staged from the mezzanine level or front porch. There are approximately 35 stairs to the mezzanine level, and 55 stairs to the front porch. There is no elevator.

This space was great, we used it for a photoshoot and there was plenty of space for all of us to work. I feel that the space is even more grand in person but just as magical in images. Hostess was fantastic, open and incredibly easy to work with.

Gorgeous, beautiful space and Ivenia and Otto were very responsive and easy to work with. We shot a music video with a skeleton crew and took photos as well- so many amazing spots. Thank you!
