I am very proud of the Green brothers who designed and built these homes - American talent all the way. Taking the tour of the Gamble house, then driving around the neighborhood to view... More

The house was built by a member of the Proctor & Gamble family and is now operated by USC's school of architecture. The tours are excellent, and if you're limited in time, just parking and walking around the outside can give you a sense of great architecture from a century ago. The book shop is also an extraordinary source of... More

This house was made just for winter visits. The outside is a off putting. The inside is superb. This is one of the important buildings in the country --the bonus --it's such wonderful fun.

A must visit for residential architecture fans. Wonderful tour of a perfectly preserved Arts & Crafts masterpiece ca 1908. If you enjoy FLW, you will appreciate this.

After touring the neighborhood with The Pasadena Tour Company (AKA Kristin -- whom we strongly recommend!), my wife and I booked a guided tour of the inside of this iconic home. The numerous pictures we had seen of it do not do it justice. The beautiful simplicity belies a celebration of craftsmanship, yet never loses track that this is a... More

The Gamble House is extraordinarily beautiful and in remarkably original condition. If you want to get an idea of what life was like on "Millionaire's Row" a century ago this is for you. The gift shop also has a better than average selection of books and reproductions.

The Gamble House is the best example of the Greene brothers craftsman style. This house is a marvel of architecture, stained glass, tile, and joinery. The docents obviously love this home and are so knowledgeable they bring the house to life. Closed Mondays and Wednesdays. If you love California craftsman and bungalow style, go, you won't be disappointed!

Wow, What a great 1 1/2 hour tour. Our Docent was very informative and kept the tour lively and informative. This is a must see if you enjoy Arts and Crafts homes.
