Pearblossom Picture Ranch is an historic, five-acre film location in a pristine desert setting, 1-1/4 hours from Hollywood. We are virtually isolated, with a clear shot to the San Gabriel mountains.
We are open throughout the year and will work to accommodate on short notice when possible. To confirm availability, please phone ahead.
Looks: down-home country, family home, cheery country, earlier historic period, party house (in-ground pool available), foreboding, mysterious, haunted, dream sequence, reality-based.
Front of property is struck by the day's first light. The desert sun provides dependable natural lighting all day. After sundown, 200 Amp 110/220V electric service available.
For comfort and shade, leafy, mature trees are everywhere, plus two large, covered front porches. There are several areas for craft services. Or, ask us about local catering.
To step on the property is to enter a timeless realm. The breezes through the trees, bird songs of many kinds, and the desert winds whistling down the mountains, all serve to enchant and inspire.
Generally speaking, every day is good for shooting here.
200 Amp 110/220V electrical service available.
Isolated property; panoramic views of mountain and desert landscapes; circular drive; tree tunnel/canopy across front; two historic houses, both with large rooms & banks of windows for natural light.
Our area was settled by the Llano del Rio utopian society during the early 1900's. In the 1940's, British author Aldous Huxley made a home for his family on the same property on which Pearblossom Picture Ranch is now located. The property consists of five acres, with two houses on 2 1/2 landscaped acres, and 2 1/2 acres left to natural desert flora. There are no neighbors' homes immediately adjacent. We are surrounded by open desert, with the big skies of the southwest overhead. We are reached via a dirt road lined with telephone poles and power lines, offering a 1940's - 1950's period look. The early 1900's Ranch (front) House has two stories, a front porch with columns, and a storm cellar, which is entered via a Wizard of Oz slanted door and stairs going down. The 1940's Studio (back) House has a large front porch, a screen door that slams, a working brick fireplace, and large bright rooms which can be utilized as additional rooms when using the front house as the main location (and vice versa).
