This Greene and Greene house is the quintessential Craftsman residence. The attention to detail in both structure and furnishing is amazing. The docents are first rate. The bookstore is worth a visit even if you do not take the tour. It is not a souvenir shop, but a curated educational collection. I shop there at Christmas time for truly unique... More

Pasadena is an Arts & Crafts architecture haven and the Gamble House is the crowned jewel. It is fortunate that this Greene bros. masterpiece has been so lovingly maintained. No need for a description - just go! And pick up the walking tour map(s) of the surrounding areas and enjoy a wonderful collection of other craftsman homes.

Stepping into this arts and crafts masterpiece by Henry and Charles Greene is like stepping back in time. It is especially unique because the furnishings are original and designed by the architects to create a unified interior. Japan was the rage when the house was designed and there is a peaceful order to the shapes and proportions of the rooms... More

Architects Green and Green really went all out here for Mr Gamble. Beautiful Arts and Crafts architecture and interior design example ... quite unique in it's kind! The wooden constructions and the very first electric lighting installation can be admired here. Everything fits and you can see how this family lived in those days in this beautiful dwelling.

We visited three wonderful places in Pasadena at the end of a stay on the west coast (from England): the Norton Simon, the Huntington Library, and the Gamble House. All were amazing, but had similar closing days so needed careful planning, especially as there was so much to enjoy at them all. We took the long tour, of 2.5 hours.... More

Make a reservation in advance and take the tour. Our docent was extremely knowledgeable and presented that information in a fun and engaging style. Even if you are a fan of Victorian architecture, check out an alternative perspective to what a house should be. Parking is a challenge, so get there early enough to find a legal spot and avoid...

If you an architecture fan, don't miss this amazing example of Arts and Crafts style. If you are not a fan, it's hard not to enjoy the tour of this house, once belonging to the Gamble family, of Procter & Gamble. I have visited four times and been amazed every time. It's also pleasant to stroll around the neighborhood and... More
