Just north of Mulholland Dr, 15 minutes to the 101 freeway, 20 minutes to downtown Malibu and beach, 45 minutes from Hollywood, the house pulls you in with its open plan interior, inspired by downtown artists lofts and Japanese Shoji style sliding walls, which redefine interior space functionality as needed per shoot. Hidden shower and sink counter are open to the exterior for unique photographic opportunities. Large window seats offer unique feature settings. The bed is open to the exterior for dramatic mood shots with full length curtains to redefine the space as needed. Glass front wall retracts for fluid indoor/outdoor transition shots.

From outside, the house has simple design character, dark grey corrugated steel exterior and flat stucco planters blend with the surroundings. The expansive front patio, with Castlerock mountain as backdrop, is perfect for large, social gathering shoots. Rear patio designed to create character of a German beer garden with long table shared seating. At night, exterior lighting, combined with large fire pit with mountain backdrop and hidden glass walls, create a seamless indoor/outdoor experience.

Oak Grove: A shaded Oak grove with an ornate chandelier over a picnic table, and a hammock swinging above a seasonal stream. A swing, Tiki torches and chiminea complete the relaxed ambiance of the grove.

Mountain Trail: A mountain trail winds up the mountain behind the house and crosses over a seasonal stream - great for wilderness shots. The trail ends at a flat plateau for equipment set up and staging. View of the Santa Monica mountains to the west, Conejo Valley to the north, scenic Castlerock mountain to the east.

Seasonal Pond: Approx 1/4 acre pond fills up with winter rains, has boat and water event potential until summer when it starts to dry up.
