Curbed LA's Chris Eggertsen reports that permits on file with FilmLA confirm that this rustic-modern Calabasas, Calif., home served as Jackson Maine's (a.k.a. Bradley Cooper's) house is where production team at Warner Brothers Pictures shot at the home for 15 days while filming the recent hit film A Star is Born.
Built in 1973, the single-story home was designed by Malibu architect Douglas Rucker, who, coincidentally, also designed a house for Kris Kristofferson, star of the 1976 version of of the film opposite Barbra Streisand. The Calabasas home was later renovated by Dan Meis, the Staples Center architect who bought it in 2015 and lived there until last year, when he sold it to an LLC named Eden Wild for just over $2 million.
While it’s located just on the outskirts of a major city, its secluded feel reflects the country singer’s low-key personality and apparent discomfort with his own fame. Like the best film locations, it serves as a thematic outgrowth of the character. It’s also simply beautiful to look at. ‘The production would have filmed in the home during a period of transition. Meis listed the post and beam residence for $2.495 million in February of 2017, but it didn’t sell until September, giving Cooper and company enough time to swoop in and utilize the space in May and June of last year.
