Sprawled over 112 acres in Brentwood, CA is the Robert Taylor Ranch, a celebrated piece of estate that was built in 1956, and designed by renowned architect Robert Byrd, who also designed the home of the late Sharon Tate, Frank Zappa’s treehouse and Ryan Stiles’ Encino home.

Robert Taylor, the late actor whose prime roles were from the 1930s-60s (“Quo Vadis,” “Ivanhoe”), was one of the owners of the ranch for which it is named.
