Assembling the property by piecemeal since September of 1978, Skywalker Ranch (aka Lucasfilm Ltd.) has been George Lucas's ever increasing film-making fortress of solitude (although he doesn't actually live there).

With a current land mass of 4,700 acres and a cost of $100 million dollars (according to The Wall Street Journal), The Ranch contains a barn with animals, vineyards, a garden with fruits and vegetables used in the on-site restaurant, an outdoor swimming pool and fitness center with racquetball courts, the man-made "Lake Ewok," a hilltop observatory, a 300-seat theater called "The Stag" as well as multiple theater screening rooms, and parking that is mostly concealed underground to preserve the natural landscape.

The Main House has a company research library under a stained-glass dome. Skywalker Ranch has its own fire station which is part of the local fire-fighting network.
