Welcome to the Penfield mansion. Please check out my brand new aerial video tour of the property by scrolling to picture number 2 in the picture set and pressing PLAY!
Once the home of Frank Sinatra, Clint Walker and 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 10 speaker 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 also offer my guesthouse for rent, which is a separate structure located in the front of the property for an additional $150/night, or I price match the Woodland Hills Hilton hotel if it happens to be cheaper on any given 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). 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!

-On top of the 4 bedrooms (1 cal king, 3 queens, a twin and a full) I also have 1 real queen mattress that can be setup with bedding upon request. Also, plenty of extra blankets, futon mattresses and couches.
Cancellation Policy- I always kept my cancellation policy set to the "90 days before check in" option for a full refund policy. Recently, VRBO took that option away and made it 60 days, but I still enforce my 90 days original cancellation policy on vacation rentals. For events, weddings, large parties etc, my cancellation policy is 1 year from the check in date due to the complexities of wedding and big event planning. I don't mind switching a date for free on weddings and events, unless the date is within 3 months and I am unable to rebook it. Thank you for your understanding.
