A Storied Equestrian Ranch in Hidden Valley with a Hollywood Pedigree


Set in the picturesque community of Hidden Valley, this sprawling, approximately 120 acre equestrian ranch is available for the first time in six decades.

Tucked in the Santa Monica Mountains and filled with native oak trees, a vegetable garden and three seasonal creeks, the original structures of the ranch have been restored and repurposed with great care to preserve their authenticity and charm. The estate features superior privacy, plentiful water supply, abundant shade, cooler weather and ocean breezes. Among the property’s unique offerings is an historic 2,500-square-foot main residence built in the 1900s and situated on nearly 126 acres—with a helipad and adjoining helicopter hanger steps away, no less.

Other amenities include two guest cottages, a manager’s house, staff residence, club house, event barn, outdoor event location, pool, fifteen horse stalls, 20-meter round pen, 100 x 200 lighted riding arena, tack room, feed room, 7-car barn, chicken coops, six pastures and two fields. Two original adobe buildings date to back to the 1930's.

A popular backdrop for Hollywood films and television, the home was featured in How to Make an American Quilt, Bones, and several commercials and television shows. The movies Seabiscuit and It’s Complicated were filmed in Hidden Valley, as well as Knots Landing and a John Wayne western. Purchased in 1957 by Roy Ash, creator of the Environmental Protection Agency, the ranch has hosted several prominent guests over the years.

Hidden Valley is about 40 miles from Los Angeles and minutes from Westlake Village, the world-renowned Sherwood Country Club. Hidden Valley contains approximately 40 properties ranging in size from approximately 20 to 1,300 acres. The ranch can be purchased as one large estate for $20,995,000 or as one of three approximately 40-acre lots for $9MM, $7MM and $5MM.
