17,000 Sq Feet of home!

Yesterday I drove out to Bakersfield to photograph for new client Vartan Kebabjiam. Vartan is part of SPK Realty. Vartan asked me to come out and photograph and shoot virtual tours of his client's house.

Housing cost in Bakersfield is significantly lower than in most parts Los Angeles. So I was very curious to see what 4 million dollars would get you....the answer is a mansion! Gor-geous home right on the Kern River. Not kidding. The lawn rolls right out to the edge of the river. Three levels of lawn and garden from the house to the river. Lots of little nooks and crannies for seating. That's just the back yard!

Walking into the front yard was like walking up to the white house. Huge collumns and huge pool-size fountain. Grand is the best way to describe it really.

Walking into the house is rich woods and textiles. Museum quality prints and antiques mix in with warm cozy seating. If there ever was a way to make a home feel grand and yet welcoming and inviting...they did it.

Now, as you can imagine, it took me quite a few hours to photograph this place. It's gonna take me quite a few to edit these images! I'll post some photos as I get through them. I just wanted to tell you about this house. One of the biggest homes I've photographed yet! I wouldn't know where to start with 17,000 sq feet!
