Laurel Canyon's Nuclear Film Studio Compound is Back

New, 11 comments

Well, well, if it isn't the Lookout Mountain Laboratory. In the 1940s, this Laurel Canyon compound served as headquarters for a secret corp of filmmakers who documented nuclear explosions for the US military. Featuring eight bedrooms, twelve baths, several galleries, a theater, soundstage, and "free form pool and waterfall," the 1.4 acre property came onto the market for $6.3 million back in September 2010 (shortly after its history was declassified). Since then, according to Redfin, the Wonderland Avenue compound has had two pending sales, but for whatever reason hasn't closed the deal. It's now been relisted at $5.75 million.
