George Lucas may have sold the rights to Star Wars, but he’s still the proud owner of the 4,700-acre Skywalker Ranch. The director has spent around $100 million developing the impressive property north of San Francisco since 1978. Lucas uses the land as a retreat, as well as work and studio space
The 50,000-square foot main home is designed to look like an 1869 Victorian home of a cattle rancher.
The estate includes this fitness center, with racquetball courts and swimming pool. Elsewhere there’s a movie theater, several screening rooms, and mostly underground parking.On the property is a 150,000-square foot technical building that was home to Skywalker Sound — until yesterday
Skywalker ranch even has its own fire brigade to protect the estate. The brigade is an active part of the Marin County Fire Mutual Aid program
More than 100 firefighters work on the ranch. They also assist overnight guest services at the inn, and they often transport guests up to the Main House or Technical Building in one of the smaller trucks.
Lucas spent more than $100 million on the land, and has only built on 15 of those acres
The Photo of the Giant Mission-style building is what Lucas built to house his employees—an expansion that Marin County blocked.
Yes… There are Ewoks that live there too !
