The Sparks and Steele Roadster House is nestled on the edge of Toluca Lake and North Hollywood, CA. Built in 1935 by car collector Raymond Nelson, this Spanish Colonial home belies the compound of garage structures and pre-staged vintage car sets that are hidden from street view.
The Roadster House has a long history with the film industry. Its previous owners, Nelson and second owner, Tom Sparks, were both in the picture car business, often supplying their vintage cars to films such as "Tucker", "The Sting", "China Town" "Pearl Harbor", and "The Great Race". The Roadster House has also served as film and photography location over the yeas. With several separate set areas available that can be partitioned off from one another, the possibilities and options for set and backdrop are unlimited. The vintage details throughout the home and garages provide a warmth that has been cultivated over the years by its previous car enthusiast owners: Nelson, Sparks and Steele.
The property sits on a 12,500 sq. ft lot, which includes the original house (1500sq. ft), as well as 3 garages consisting of almost 4000 sq. ft. The garage and workshop areas have remained unchanged for decades and evoke a hand-worn feel of authentic Americana that is as beautiful as it is rugged. Currently owned by two LA based musicians and hot rod historians, the Roadster House is lovingly maintained as a 1930's California time capsule.
The Roadster House is located in North Hollywood, CA and is available for Film and Magazine shoots. For more information please contact below.
