The Bachelorette Sneak Peek: Jordan Opens Up

The reality series The Bachelor and its spin-offs The Bachelorette and Bachelor Pad have had one thing in common through more than 30 seasons: the infamous Bachelor mansion. The 9,000-square-foot home sits on ten acres atop a mountain in Agoura Hills, California, with stunning sunrise and sunset views, often glimpsed during an episode's rose ceremony or romantic date. Fans of the show will remember the estate's luxurious amenities, such as the pool with its series of archways meant to resemble a aqueduct or the fountain at the main entrance where contestants step out of limos to make their first impression. With six bedrooms and ten baths, the home is definitely fit for a crowd of 26. Here, we take a look inside some of the rooms you may not see on TV.

“The kitchen is really the nucleus of the home, and everything extends from there,” says contractor and homeowner Marshall Haraden. The space has some of the best views of the entire house.

The Spanish-style residence was built directly into a mountain—contractors jackhammered the rock below to create the foundation and pool. In the spirit of the Mexican haciendas that inspired him, contractor and homeowner Marshall Haraden used any recycled materials he had around, including the volcanic rock that was dug up during construction, century-old palm trees, and forty olive trees. Fittingly, there are also 300 rosebushes on the property, all replanted from various projects Haraden has worked on in the area. Now the only question is who will accept the final rose given by the newest Bachelorette, Jojo.
