The Houdini Estate

The Houdini Estate

Built-in the Edwardian tradition in the early 1900s, The Houdini Estate® still has caves, hidden tunnels, terraced gardens, and a deep-water tank where Harry Houdini reportedly practiced his underwater escapes. The secluded property was the perfect retreat for America’s first action hero.

Houdini used the estate’s pool to practice his amazing feats of escape and illusion until a short time before his death in 1926. The magic and mystery of “The Handcuff King” still remain with the property where Houdini’s wife, Bess, gave a famous party for 500 magicians and lived for years after her husband died.

The estate and its gardens were restored after the 1959 Laurel Canyon Fire burned the original mansion and now enjoy modern amenities while maintaining the grand mystique and marvel of Harry Houdini.
