The Gamble House is one of the highlights of Pasadena, a beautiful city with much to see. I was born a few blocks away but it took me more than 70 years to get to the house. What a treat! If you're interested in architecture, woodwork, furniture, art, or California history, don't miss it! It's virtually unchanged since it was... More

This home is well known as an excellent example of Arts and Crafts architecture. The grounds and the home are beautiful and very well kept. Adult entry is about $15 and tours are scheduled at certain hours of the day to see the interior. Otherwise, you can walk around the home's exterior and take photos (no cost). The garage was...

Very interesting arts and crafts house in the style of Frank Lloyd Wright but actually designed by the Green Brothers. One hour tour is worth it!

I love arts and crafts homes and was excited to visit this one. Unfortunately there was an art installation throughout the home. It was very distracting and took away from the beauty of the home. Some items were not accessible due to the placement of the art. Any art would distract from this historic home, but these pieces were more... More

I wanted to build a Craftsman style recording studio in Malibu. I learned about the Gamble House tours from one of the docents, who happened to be the owner of a now defunct (and amazing) store called Historic Lighting. Anyway I took the tour and was blown away by the house, the joinery, the knowledge of the docents, everything. The... More

Advanced Arts & Crafts architecture from the height of the Greene brothers accomplishments. Beautiful woodwork, decorative items, furniture, stained glass -- all one of a kind. Learn about the Gamble family (as in Proctor & Gamble -- the corporation), the fascination of the West and building a "health" retreat home far from the snow belt. There is so much to... More

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

This is one of my go to's with guest form out of town. The views of the Arroyo from their back yard is breath taking. The house it's self it 100% pure Craftsman at it's finest! The Green's left nothing untouched. The whole house is one beautifully crafted work of art. Even seam and room, door, window right down to... More
