L.A. Film Locations is proud to offer this Moroccan gem which boasts gorgeous filmable common areas and has not been available for filming for over 30 years!
The fabulous pool house at Casa Blanca aka Moroccan Gem was once part of a seven acre beachside estate designed by one of Santa Barbara’s most renown architects, George Washington Smith, and built in the 1920’s by millionaire playboy, Albert Keep Isham, heir to a Chicago fortune. The estate was a magnet for Hollywood stars.
The Hispano-Moorish pool house (which has since achieved Santa Barbara County historical landmark status) incorporates minarets, Tunisian wall tiles capturing the vibrant design of Oriental carpets, distinctive hexagonal floor tiles and intricate wrought iron grillwork. The pool area is illuminated by a retractable full length skylight surrounded by massive wooden beams. At one end of the pool is a beautiful poolside fireplace surrounded by gorgeous tiles handmade in Spain and tiled columns supporting Moorish arches, while the other end if decorated with a finely detailed Tunisian wall with an intricate six foot tall original mural all done in hand painted tiles.
This property also offers a beautiful drive up area, incredible beach views, a tennis court, various Moroccan styled fountains in the common areas and a gorgeous drive up area near the pool house. There is also a beachfront common area in front of the original home at this compound that is filmable.
This is a very unique property and more glamorous when viewed in person. Please contact L.A. Film Locations at 661.253.FILM (3456) for more information.
