What Is The Mystique Of The Houdini Estate®?

This centrally located, $15 million private landmark can be all yours short term. Our gardens are fresh and green all year thanks to our natural water spring. This historic property, beautifully decorated according to Houdini’s era, provides an exclusive way to escape the banality of the usual hotel or banquet hall.

 

You will experience the magic of century-old trees in five romantic acres tended by 15 gardeners; intriguing artwork in unexpected places; seasonally curated flowers; fabulous sunny and shady photographic vistas; nine outdoor terraced levels for entertainment, meals, and ceremonies; hours of hiking trails; hidden passageways; a three-story waterfall, and outdoor and indoor spas. 

 

Adding charm are brilliantly colored koi, regal peacocks, inquisitive turtles, giant bullfrogs, stately blue herons, and wild deer and their babies. Your guests will never be bored. All of this in famed Laurel Canyon, two traffic lights from Hollywood Blvd. When your celebration is at the legendary Houdini Estate, don't expect empty chairs - people do come, and will remember your Houdini event for a lifetime.

RENTAL RATES

You get the entire Estate for up to an eight-hour event with a night included. Count hosts, guests, vendors, staff, and performers in your total approximate headcount.


SHOWINGS

We receive many requests to see The Houdini Estate, but this private landmark rarely opens its gates to just visitors; we request a $100 donation to send someone knowledgeable about the property and event possibilities to open the gates to your group of any size for an exclusive tour. Your $100 goes to an IRS-recognized charity, and you also credit toward your rent. Bring comfortable shoes and reserve an hour for the showing. We are kid- and pet-friendly.

 

FREEDOM OF CHOICE

We provide The Estate, eight bathrooms, and the property support staff for the party; there are no up-sales. You have the creative freedom to bring your own caterers, musicians, and rentals. We’re happy to suggest vendors and plans for your event. You can host up to 1,200 people.

All proceeds go to charity
