Gardens of Julia Morgan's Historic Redwood Grove
Staggering redwoods, organic fruit orchards and vegetable gardens are surrounded by English cutting gardens, specimen trees, a koi pond, and flagstone paths that lead you to hidden areas of serenity including an old fashioned camp fire picnic.
A Master Gardener raises all plants and vegetables from seed and the entire grounds are beautifully landscaped and designed for entertaining on a grand scale. 
The unspoiled environment is a spectacular area to shoot any type of project on the estate's many stone terraces and grounds that envelop you with breathtaking vistas of unspoiled nature.

From the Commissioner, 

We are honored to have the Historical Redwood Grove designed by Julia Morgan in this months Location Spotlight.   Nestled in the Redwood Forest, surrounded by the Eel River and near Benbow Lake, this location is stunning.  It is one of my favorite places and not just in Humboldt and Del Norte Counties.  We're also having one of the driest falls in recent memory with little to no rain, making it ideal with all the gorgeous elements that we are known for.  Continue having a great fall, I know we will.  
Julia Morgan's Historic Redwood Grove
Surrounded by over 170,000 acres of protected redwood forests and dramatically situated overlooking the banks of the South Fork of the Eel River, with gorgeous views of the steelhead filled river, this historic house is an ideal location for filming.  This extraordinary country estate was designed to resemble a Scottish estate by Julia Morgan, who is best known for her work on Hearst Castle, in San Simeon, California.  Commissioned in 1926, the estate was part of a planned 1,290 acre resort for the Benbow family. 
The elegant and spacious Guest House was completely restored with a beautiful stoned veranda where one can eat outside and enjoy the tranquility of the Koi pond and the surrounding nature.

The baronial Main House, gracious Guest House, and Carriage House offer quality that characterized each of Morgan's works, including hand-milled woods and hand-carved stone from the original quarry. 
Today, the Redwood Grove has been conscientiously restored to the historical detail and grandeur characterized by Julia Morgan.  Her trademark references to nature including the birds and stag, leaves and rosettes are featured with exposed old growth redwood ceiling and support beams accented with earth colors and materials.  Her design hallmarks included painstaking attention to detail and craftsmanship, which incorporate the owner's private collection of art and antiques.  The current owners spared nothing to complete the magnificent and faithful restoration.
