Authentic Mid Century Modern home in Trousdale Estates section of Beverly Hills (eastern part of Beverly Hills proper, north of Sunset Blvd.) available for photo shoots, filming and select events. Architect was Howard Frank, who designed many Mid Century Modern homes in Palm Springs. Built in 1956. Roughly 5,000 sq. foot home with four bedrooms and four bathrooms on one acre — mostly flat with very large lawn. Purchased from original owner.
Very comfortable and private for celebrities. Other than driveway, home and grounds cannot be viewed by neighbors. South facing with ocean view. Water features include an entry pond with floating steps, a large heatable pool, and separate infinity jacuzzi with lava rock fireplace. Extensive interior space for wardrobe, hair and makeup, production office, talent holding, etc. — motor homes are usually unnecessary. House has high speed wireless internet. Kitchen is mostly original, including an elaborate 1950’s era stove and formica counter tops. Ceilings are 10 feet 4 inches in main living areas. Very easy to move and store furniture and equipment via large sliding glass doors in every room. Garage sometimes holds classic cars, which are usually available for shoots. Children and animals are welcome. So are last-minute shoots, subject to availability.
Easily accessible wide street with plenty of parking. Large driveway holds approximately 15 cars, or two 10-ton trucks plus generator, camera truck and restrooms for filming. On multi-day shoots, you can “walk away” at the end of each day so there is less in-and-out to disturb neighbors.
There have been some minor changes since these photos were taken. The master bedroom and bathroom are usually off-limits, the wood desk in the second bedroom and the swing set are no longer there, the two gray exterior rattan chairs and ottomans have been replaced, the loose gravel portion of the driveway has been replaced with gravel locked in concrete, (which looks very similar), and some of the plantings are slightly different.
Very experienced, discreet and hospitable film-producer homeowner. Great neighbors. Owner handles all contact with neighbors, including notifications, signatures, posting, etc. For filming, nearby neighbors gladly rent their driveways for crew meals and additional parking. To keep neighbors happy, owner usually refrains from loud or late-night events.
PRICING depends on several factors, including the type of use, amount of people, and amount and type of larger vehicles. Please inquire — thanks!
