Between Season 1 and Season 2 of Agent Carter, the series location switched from New York to Los Angeles. This is very convenient since Peggy’s benefactor, Howard Stark, happens to have homes in both cities. Let’s see where they are!
LOCATION: Howard Stark Mansion, New York (905 Loma Vista Dr, Beverly Hills); Howard Stark Mansion, Los Angeles (739 Hillcrest Ave, La Cañada Flintridge)
SHOW: Agent Carter, Season 1 & Season 2
NOTE: This is a Private Residence. Please be considerate to the owners of the Property.
We first see a bit of Stark’s New York mansion in Season 1, Episode 3, which uses the exteriors & interiors of the Greystone Mansion, a famous Hollywood location (X-Men, the Sam Raimi Spider-Man films, Batman & Robin and Arrow). Locating this filming location proved relatively easy. The mansion is very recognizable and has a number of images online to check against the show imagery.
When Season 2 moved out to Los Angeles for the main plot, it was necessary to find a different location to use for Howard’s L.A. Mansion. The production found a private residence in a Los Angeles suburb that serves for the exteriors of the mansion. This location proved somewhat more challenging to find. Without knowing exactly where this mansion was located, there were too many places in the Hollywood Hills, Malibu and Beverly Hills that it could possibly be. It wasn’t until I reviewed the Agent Carter: Season 2 Declassified book where it was mentioned that La Cañada Flintridge was the neighborhood where this was shot, that I was able to begin searching in earnest.
Scanning the town from the satellite view, I located a couple of places that could possibly have the larger homes as seen in the episodes. After that, it was only a matter of driving through those neighborhoods until I found the house used for Howard Stark’s residence.
This is a different Los Angeles mansion than was used to film the scenes in the Agent Carter one-shot (as included on the Iron Man 3 BluRay). At this time, that location is unknown.
Please remember that this is a Private Residence, and you should always be respectful of the owners of the Property.
