Overview

About the property

Clint Walker and Roger Miller also lived here!

Welcome to the Penfield mansion.

Once the home of Frank Sinatra, Clint Walker and then Roger Miller in the 1970s who raised his whole family here, this house is amazing with exceptional history that can be felt in every room! The hit song, King Of The Road was actually written by Roger Miller at the bar! We strive to provide a comfortable, safe and professional environment. The property sits on the top of a hill, all by itself on over an acre of land with 360-degree views of the whole city and is completely gated and secure. You have total privacy from all angles. There are no neighbors able to see the land or the house. Take a tour and see for yourself! High speed internet and cable TV included free of charge. The house also has a built in JBL sound system for radio, CDs, Ipod, MP3 players etc. Parking for 20 cars on premises.

See pictures for complete details on the house layout. I just completed a brand new driveway, expanded in width to accommodate 2 way traffic all the way up and down the hill, beautiful paver stones in the beginning of the driveway. Tons of additional outdoor lighting, landscaping and design. I expanded the main grass area in the backyard to 5000sqft and replaced the real grass with fake grass as well as built a lookout point for wedding photography. Totally flat and beautiful. The neighborhood is very nice and quiet. The house is at the very end of a culdesac, children can ride bikes in the street, its very safe. There are tons of fabulous restaurants in the area including Roys, Flemings, Ruth Chris, Benihana etc. all within 5 minutes.

All beds have the highest quality Egyptian cotton'Royal Velvet' fabulous down alternative comforters, very high count Egyptian cotton sheets and pillow cases, down alternative pillows and also firmer pillows to suite your taste. Bathroom towels, and large beach towels for the pool are always provided. Ping pong table, mini golf and pinball games on premises.

I recently started offering my guesthouse for rent, which is a separate structure located in the front of the property for an additional $150/night, it's 650sqft, freshly painted, has a Cal King and a temperpedic queen bed, 50in HD TV, private kitchen and bath, dishwasher, AC, bbq and private deck/patio with jacuzzi (upon request). Please email me for pics, as I am only allowed 24 pics on display. Several of my last renters have added it to their bookings and been very happy with it. If you don't decide to rent it, it will just be vacant during your stay. I do not rent the guesthouse separately, it is only offered to whatever guest is renting the main house.

Thank you for your time and consideration!

HAD AN ABSOLUTELY AMAZING STAY

  • 5 of 5

Staying at this Woodland Hills mansion was definitely the best choice we made, when visiting Los Angeles. Its so private, and the house is so spacious, that we felt so relaxed and at ease while staying here. There are so many bathrooms and rooms, that your whole party can spread out and not be all in each others way.

The view is absolutely to die for you. You can see the whole San Fernando Valley and even beyond. The house is perched on top of a hill, and is like its own hideaway! With a private coded gate and long driveway, you feel like a celebrity, driving towards the house.

The kitchen is a true chefs kitchen! It has everything a restaurant would have, even restaurant quality and style fridge and freezer. And a huge bar counter. Where we would pop open a few bottles of wine and have long chats while preparing dinner.

The pool area, we nicknamed the mini playboy mansion, has a mini grotto area, and a huge lawn. We would sit out by the pool area and eat our dinner's watching the lights of the city.

The master room is the whole top floor. It is humongous. It has a shower that could probably fit like 10 people in it, and a balcony that overlooks the front of the house. We would often have our coffee on this balcony in the morning and watch the sun peeking through the tree's.

There's a pool table, pinball machines, and even a stripper pole in the back room! The house is classy, but also so much fun! It would definitely be PERFECT for huge parties, and weddings.

There is so much parking, which was great when we invited friends we knew in town to come over and visit.

Mike, the property owner, was just amazing throughout our whole stay and even after our stay! He made sure upon arrival that everything was clean and spotless. We had towels, and blankets, and pillows, everything. He even left a bunch of welcome home goodies in the kitchen for us. Chocolates and wine and fruit! Even after our stay he made sure we enjoyed ourselves and everything went well and we were happy.

And we are! Very happy! Definitely will stay again. We already booked a week in March and April!

The Best Plave We Could Have Held Our Party

  • 5 of 5

We couldn’t have chosen a better venue. Michael was great. The staff he had on hand for us was great. Everyone loved the space. What more can I say. If your thinking about renting this house just do it. You won’t be sorry.

Beautiful place for an amazing wedding!!

  • 5 of 5

I had the most magical wedding at this estate!! The house is beautiful on the inside and out; from the unique atrium, to the unforgettable bar, the awesome pink water fountain, the breath taking views of the valley, the relaxing beds outside and the one of a kind waterfall. Just when you think you've explored the whole estate you find some new and unique detail. The bathrooms are awesome, each one unique and cool! The upstairs master sweet is beautiful, with 2 balconies, and a bathroom you have to see to believe!

My wedding was truly unforgettable, and the best part about it was the location. It was perfect for the relaxed backyard feel we wanted, but still classy enough for a wedding. So many of my guests commented on how awesome the estate was. We especially loved that the house had a bar room in it! There is also the perfect room for a dance floor. I honestly could not imagine a more perfect location for a intimate wedding. We had about 70 guests in attendance.

We rented it for the whole weekend which made it great for out of town guests to stay and a great place to hang out the day before and the day after the event. Everyone wanted to come back so they could swim in the pool.

Mike, the owner, made the whole process stress free and easy. He was very accommodating. After all, I was planning MY wedding!!! He was always quick to answer my questions, as silly as they may have been, and allowed me to visit the estate several times before my big day. He was friendly and wonderful and made the whole experience just that much easier and better.

My new husband and I, and several of our friends have already started talking about renting the house again for whatever excuse we can come up with! I don't have a single complaint or a single thing I would change! I would give this review 100 stars if I could!!!! Perfect and Unforgettable. An absolute dream come true. If you're thinking of renting it I definitely say do it!!

We had the BEST time!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I planned our very simple and small wedding here. We also used this as our hotel for our out of town guests and it was the smartest thing we could have done. Everyone is envious of our idea and it could not have been a more perfect day. Everyone loved the historical elements and references to the famous folks who have stayed there. Our only complaint was that we were unable to find cleaning products, such as brooms and dust rags to help us keep the property clean for the event. We purchased a lot of things such as dish soap, hand soap, hand towels and the like, so that we had proper bathrooms for our guests. The charcoal grill is also more of a smoker than a grill, but we made it work. A propane grill would be an excellent addition to the house! Also, we were charged an "event" fee for extra clean up and the like even though we left the place cleaner than we found it. I did feel that there was some nickle and diming when it came to paying for the house. However, Michael was flexible, and was easy to work with. Many of my wedding guests will be contacting him to hold future parties and/or stays because it really is the perfect place.
