You can only see the inside of the house with a tour. It is worth the money to look inside, especially if you like craftsman style. This was the winter house of the Gambles from Proctor and Gamble, and the excellent tour guide told us so much about the house and customs of the time (like the house was dark... More

The Gamble House is an example of iconic California Craftsman style architecture, unique in its simplicity, its esthetic charm and its Japanese influence. An American gem! The exquisite attention to detail in each of the rooms is a tribute to the perfectionistic taste of Mary Gamble, wife of David Gamble of Procter and Gamble fame. The Greene and Greene brothers'...

The house is an excellent example of California's arts and crafts style, and is in pristine condition. The docent we had was lively and so enthusiastic about the house. Most of the furniture was made for the house by the architects, so everything goes together perfectly, in a subtle way, with certain motifs repeated throughout the house. One can easily... More

I love taking my friends and visitors to the Gamble house. The tour guides are very knowledgeable and I learn something new every time I visit. 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.
