King Gillette Ranch

Nestled in the heart of the Santa Monica Mountains between Malibu and Calabasas, King Gillette Ranch sits on 588 acres of scenic parkland, frequented by native wildlife and visitors alike. At the center of this expansive property is the Mansion, an historic Spanish Colonial Revival formal residence built for razor magnate King C. Gillette in 1928.

The stunning mansion was designed by Wallace Neff, known as the Architect of California’s Golden Age. A grand tree-lined driveway majestically welcomes all guests. The Ranch’s rolling lawns, distinguished courtyards, and a tranquil pond with bridges and swans, set the stage for an elegant occasion. Aside from the popular mansion, King Gillette Ranch’s surrounding lawns and buildings offers many choices for weddings, dinner and cocktail parties and other special events.
