“The Bachelor” & “Bachelorette” Pad in California

Last year Big-Time Listings reported that the rustic Italian-style mansion in Agoura Hills, California, where the popular “Bachelor” and “Bachelorette” reality shows (and now “Bachelor Pad”) are filmed, was on the market for $6.75 million.

The listing has since been removed, and I’m not sure if it sold or not. But the house, known as Villa De La Vina, has an official website with photos that show what it looks like when it’s not all dolled up for TV. You can apparently rent it out for your own special event.

They redecorate the mansion for every season, so it always looks a little different. Here’s a photo of the living room from Ali’s season of “The Bachelorette.”

The only thing that looks the same in the shot of the room on the Villa De La Vina website is the floor (wood surrounded by tile, and a tile border that runs around the baseboard):

Another shot of the living room, from another angle:

On the other hand, I’d recognize that (in)famous pool anywhere:

The Dining Room:

Remember Jesse Csincsak, the man Deanna Pappas chose during the 2008 season of “The Bachelorette,” — only to dump him a few months later?

Jesse Csincsak-Deanna Pappas-BacheloretteJesse described the mansion to RADAR:

“The Mansion is more of a compound than a mansion. It only has 4 bedrooms upstairs. Downstairs are the rose ceremony room, her room with all the guys’ photos in it and the kitchen and the living room. The rest of the house that you never see is filled with production equipment.

“The Compound has 7 ft concrete walls all around it with security guards walking the perimeter so there is no way in or out. The Mansion has microphones throughout so they can always hear what’s going on and when something good happens they send one of their 24 hr a day camera crews to investigate…”

In this aerial shot you can see those walls surrounding the perimeter that he mentions:

    What a fun post! I never really liked the show all that much until I discovered Reality Steve. Now I can’t help but watch! It’s so much more entertaining with his info! That pool is incredible….!

    You know, I think ABC should really hire someone new to decorate the house. It’s just all so overdone to me. . . .I do like that green horse behind the sofa–it seems to distract me alot though :)

    Yes, definitely Roberto! I would pick him and go home. Although, I’m thinking I might really like Chris, the landscaper from Cape Cod.

    I think she’s been totally into Roberto since the moment she laid eyes on him. I’m thinking he’ll be in the top 3 definitely. Oh, I’m such a sucker for that show!

    Your Welcome! I love the inside of this home. The outside, is ok. I watched the Bachelor years ago, but haven’t seen it since. I personally think the plot of these shows are kind of dumb so I don’t care to be tuned in.

  5. says

    How fun to know a bit more about the house and see the aerial shot. Do you think the aerial shot was just taken perhaps during a construction project or do you think they leave that wall up all the time?

    My vote goes to Roberto or Frank. Frank seems like he’s not gonna make it emotionally. Thank God she got rid of weatherman tonight! That guy was a dork and so insecure! Yes… I’m a bachelor/bachelorette fan! lol…

    I ran across Reality Steve a couple seasons ago too and it totally turned me off the show. I’m all for a good love story, but it seems that so much of it is planned by the producers that it’s hardly reality. Oh, well, they obviously know how to concoct some serious drama. :)

    A bunch of girls after one guy is just too sleazy for me. But a bunch of guys after one girl seems perfectly natch! :-)

    Love the house. Love the gorgeous pool. But hoping all that construction is just temporary. Now I’m off to check out this reality Steve!

  8. says

    I’m sort of fascinated by the whole compound thing, I’m a bit naive I guess but I thought it was just a house somewhere. I can’t watch either of those shows though, the whole concept rubs me the wrong way. And I have plenty of guilty pleasure shows mind you so it’s not the reality show aspect (hello Real Housewives of NY, am obsessed) but the whole “pick me pick me” situation skeeves me.

    There’s no amount of decorating, or disinfectant for that matter, that would make that house appealing after the show has run its course.

  10. says

    I agree about the awful-ness of the show, but its funny you posted this because as I was flicking through the channels recently, I stopped on the show because of the house! I immediately thought of Hooked-on-Houses!

    I can’t really handle these shows anymore, but I do tune in from time to time. I guess my curiosity gets the best of me!! Funny, but I did manage to see the part where the wrestler guy apparently walked miles on crutches to visit Ali. So funny to now know the truth. Next time, maybe they can set up some shots of him scaling those fortress walls!

    That is good trash TV. I love watching it every Monday night to feel better about myself. 😉 My vote is for Chris L from Cape Cod (the one who lost his mom). I like Roberto, but I think he’s too good to be true. I think he’ll either leave or have a girlfriend. There’s another guy who seems to be really into Ali, but I think he might be a bit obsessive.

    LOVE that pool!!!

    Wow that house looks really weird from the sky. It looks like a compound. Have to say the pool is beautiful. My first pick is Roberto too. He is so down to earth and absolutely adorable. I can’t help but say it while I’m watching. My husband just glares at me. Sorry hon but it’s the truth!!!

    I like the mansion, and I think it has a lot of potential, but I do agree with Emily A. Clark that they could hire someone new to decorate it! It does seem a little bit ‘typical.’ The pool on the other hand is pretty awesome, I could see myself lounging out there!

    I am trying so hard NOT to watch this year! And I was wondering how Justin made it to Ali’s house! Gotta admit that I’ve never been a fan of the inside of that house. It’s just too…something for me. But I think the outside spaces are stunning!

    Hi Everyone.
    I think i would pick one of the following:

    Chris L (I love his family – his thoughfulness and seems to be the perfect package)
    Craig the lawyer–we know he is every smart or he would not have passed the bar, also he seems very gentle and well-bred. I haven’t seen him intruding on Ali while she is with someone else—can also say that about Chris L, Roberto and Kirk.

    Roberto is adorable
    Kirk is cute
    Remember Ali that sex is good but it won’t pay the bills, you need a good
    combination. no one can tell if anyone is sexy until they are behind closed doors
    with no camera

    The Bachelorette is the most intense 2 hours on television. It goes against every instinct the male species is programed with to sit in a room with 12 other dudes talking about how much they love their gf and how they will “guard and protect” her heart (what a douche, right?…tattoo guy). I can’t believe I watch this show…ahem, what I meant to say is, “I cant believe Monday is so far away!”

    This house is on the most wonderful road. I live one town over from the Bachelor Pad. Not only does the house have curb appeal but the entire road does. So pretty!

    Only four bedrooms in that huge home? That’s disappointing to know; I would have guessed a minimum of five. Being the reality show junkie that I am, I’d have to also go with Roberto. I also like the contractor (can’t remember his name right now) whose mom died a year ago. The others don’t seem to be that memorable, with the exception of the wrestler who is evidently a cad.

    I’ve always loved the candle wall…does anyone know where you can get that or would it be custom made do you think?

    Does anyone know where I could get the kitchen cabinets that are featured on Bachelor Pad this summer? I absolutely LOVE them!!!!

      Sorry, I don’t. A kitchen designer might have an idea, though. -Julia

  23. debbie says

    ummm…this mantion was NOT built for ABC. it was actually someone’s home. several yrs ago it was for sale (E! reported it) with pictures of the home & grounds. ABC probably bought it for the series.

    • hookedonhouses says

      No, it wasn’t built for ABC. As I mentioned in the post, the owners rent it out to people for events and ABC for the show. It was on the market, but the listing has since been taken down. I’m not sure who (if anyone) bought it. Does anyone else know?

  24. Dana LaRue says

    I was wondering where I could purchase the gold and black paisley fabric used outside in the cabana for the drapes and pillows. I have never seen such a beautiful fabric. Please if you could let me know. We really enjoyed the show and never missed an episode.

    I figured out from a recent episode where it’s located!! Can’t wait to (try to) visit :-)
