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):

On the other hand, I’d recognize that (in)famous pool anywhere:
Here’s the cabana, where many a romantic scene has taken place:

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