The custom home, built in 2005, is located on 10 acres at 2351 Kanan Road.
As the show is designed, the series revolves around a single bachelor (deemed eligible) who starts with a pool of romantic interests (typically 25) from whom the bachelor is expected to select a wife.
During the course of the season, the bachelor eliminates candidates (see The elimination process), with the bachelor proposing marriage to his final selection.
The bachelor has wide discretion in choosing how many and when to present the roses.
