A master suite features a carved-stone mantelpiece and a spacious bathroom with a whirlpool tub. Four full baths inside and one half-bath outside are available for residents and guests. The open-plan kitchens are fully appointed. High-speed Internet, satellite television, outdoor fireplaces, barbecue patios, a heated pool, and an outdoor spa are part of the amenities.

What Is The Mystique Of The Houdini Estate®?

This centrally located, $15 million private landmark can be all yours short term. It provides a unique and exclusive way to escape the banality of the usual hotels and the inconvenience of distant venues. In addition to enjoying the historic house beautifully decorated according to Houdini’s era, you will experience the magic of century-old trees in five acres of romantic gardens tended by 15 gardeners and sustained by The Estate's natural spring water; intriguing artwork in unexpected places; seasonally curated flowers; fabulous sunny and shady photographic vistas; nine terraced levels for entertainment, meals, and ceremonies; hours of hiking trails; hidden passageways; a three-story waterfall, and outdoor and indoor spas. 


Adding a unique charm to The Estate 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 mythical Houdini Estate, don't expect empty chairs - people do come. They will remember your event for a lifetime. (Click The Wall Street Journal article at https://goo.gl/rVaQVt and the Newsbreak article at https://share.newsbreak.com/p4as4g08.)


All proceeds go to charity

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.


We receive many requests to see The Estate, but the property 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 for an exclusive tour. Your $100 goes to an IRS-recognized charity, and you receive a $100 credit toward your rent. Bring comfortable shoes and reserve an hour for the showing. We are kid- and pet-friendly.
