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!

Spacious Property, Great location

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this property to celebrate my engagement. My stay was wonderful. The property is massive and there was plenty of room to accommodate 16+ guests. I did not host an event but the kitchen and outside area seemed easily large enough to host an event of 80+ people. The grotto area and pool give the property a nice touch. All of the bathrooms appear to be newly remodeled. The host was extremely easy to work with and was very responsive to any questions or needs I had before and during my stay. Since this property is up on a hill, there are great views from everywhere and you also have complete privacy from the neighbors. Sound does travel down the hill though so be sure not to have loud music on outside during the late hours. I would highly recommend this property for anyone wanting a large place for a getaway or anyone who wishes to host an event!

5-Star Experience!

  • 5 of 5

A group of us rented the house for a get together for a weekend. Amazing views...tons of space... lots of yard. Perfect for what we were going for with it. Michael was super responsive as needed throughout the trip, but was careful to allow us to do our own thing. If you have enough guests, I'd recommend getting the guest house too (if you're able to), it was helpful for a couple extra beds, and it was also really nice! Overall, I couldn't have imagined a much better experience.

Spectacular Property

  • 5 of 5

I rented this property to host fmaily for Thanksgiving, and it was perfect. Very spacious, with tons of activities for the kids (ping pong, pool table, pool & spa, putting green, etc) and a very large kitchen/family room perfect for everyone to congregate and enjoy our time there. The views are incredible fomr this property, and its very close to lots of amenities like grocery stores and restaurants. Michael was a very helpful host - incredibly helpful with questions before and during our stay!
