This is the Legendary “Lookout Mountain Motion Picture Studio.” It is located at 8935 Wonderland Avenue in Los Angeles, CA. It boasts over 50,000 square feet of personal residence/creative space. This “Warhol Factory Style” compound boasts massive spaces that include several galleries, home theater and sound stage. It is gated with an enormous motorcourt, large free form swimming pool and waterfall and is situated on approximately 1.4 acres. It is listed at $6,300,000. I do love the large open spaces, but I don’t think that I would ever be able to live there. It would make a great party house though.

    It’s definitely more warehouse/gallery than home. Although, there are some rooms that are truly beautiful. Many other rooms look way too dated and would need to be redone from scratch. It’s an interesting property and I wonder if a new owner will rebuild it as a huge house, or tear it down and build something new (sadly, probably something faux-Tuscan).

    The history of the property is very interesting. More pics and some history at: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2010/09/29/wonderland-compound-in-ho_n_742889.html#s146624

      Thanks Grrrowler – I even watched a short film of them testing an A-bomb! This is a first for me, seeing a home theater in a bathroom. I don’t know which looks out of place the most – the large screen or the tub (I guess the tub since there is seating in there for guests. It reminds me of the Court of France during Louis XIV where the guests were able to watch & even help during the cleaning and dressing of the monarchy. If you haven’t seen Sofia Coppola’s 2006 film, “Marie Antoinette”, I highly recommend it. It’s a huge thrill if you’ve been to Versailles. (Since it was filmed there with the cooperation of the French government) It has a scene where she takes her gown on & off (freezing) while they change to whoever walks in with the highest patronage to ‘assist’ the new queen. It is such an honor for these women to take off her gown, but then someone higher up comes in and she has to put it back on so the new one can take it off. This happens several times. This scene alone is worth the price of the rental.

      Back to this property, some of the tile bathrooms are striking, but that brown one is vomit inducing! 😉

    So do the owner’s live with the art, or does the art live with the owner’s?

    If you want to see art, go to a museum. I cannot fathom dedicated so much square-footage to something stagnant. The only I could see it being useful as is a showcase for a fantastic car collection.

    A home it ain’t.

    I don’t find it legendary at all…

    I don’t like the idea of a gallery which looks like a house.The exterior and the shape are ugly, even for a modern house.Also, the spacious rooms don’t promise comfortable living.However, I have to admit that some rooms are seem awesome.But this is not enough: I wouldn’t be able to reside in this gallery house, albeit my passion for quality and very expensive paintings.

    If I had this home I would create for myself the largest coke habit possible and hire a Chinese kid to walk around throwing lit firecrackers 24/7.

    But, then again, that’s just me.
