What Is The Mystique Of The Houdini Estate®?

         T his legendary $15 million landmark provides a unique and exclusive way to escape far-flung venues and the usual hotels, as well as create lifelong remembrances. A historic house beautifully decorated to Houdini’s era, plus the magic of centenary trees in five acres of romantic gardens tended by fifteen gardeners, intriguing artwork in unexpected places, seasonally curated flowers, sunny and shady photographic vistas, nine ample terraces for entertainment, various locations for meals and ceremonies, hours of hiking trails, hidden passageways, a natural spring, a three-story waterfall, outdoor and indoor hot tubs.

           Your guests will never be bored. Brilliantly colored koi, regal peacocks, inquisitive turtles, giant bullfrogs, stately blue herons, and wild deer and their babies also add a unique charm to the Estate. All of this in famed Laurel Canyon, two traffic lights from Hollywood Blvd. When your celebration is at The Houdini Estate, people do come; don’t count on available seats. And they will remember your event for a lifetime. (Click The Wall Street Journal article at https://goo.gl/rVaQVt.)

SHOWINGS

Our apologies but, we do not offer public tours. We receive many requests, but The Houdini Estate rarely opens its gates to visitors. As part of the selection process, we ask your group for a $100 donation for an exclusive tour and send someone knowledgeable about the Houdini Estate and event planning to open up the property and explain its possibilities. Your $100 is donated entirely to the IRS recognized Heaven Sent Foundation. As a bonus you receive a $100 credit toward your rent. Bring comfortable shoes and reserve an hour for the showing. We are kid and pet friendly.
