A well maintained example of a famous Greene and Greene house. The tour allows you get close to details and textures as well as furnishings many designed by the Greene brothers. Small gift shop with related arts and crafts items.

A n eye popping look at Green and Green. You come away wondering," How did they do it?" Every time I visit, I see something new.

The Gamble House is worth a short visit to catch a glimpse of Pasadena's Gilded Age in the early 20th Century and is a very good example of American Arts and Crafts architecture. The guided tours take about one hour and the guides are very knowledgeable about the house and its former occupants. Be sure to walk around the neighborhood... More

This is a beautiful house that has been wonderfully preserved. There is original furniture and accessories throughout the house. The docents are very helpful and well educated. The tour takes about an hour and you learn about the structure of the house and the history of the family that owned it.

Soooo many coo things where do I start. First off, not a single nail in the entire house. I loved the staircase and the sleeping porches. Really amazing stories by the docents too!

This house is one of the best examples of extraordinary architecture from two of early California's geniuses.

This Greene & Greene home is wonderfully perfect for an A&C home of this era (and to my thinking, any period). All design elements from the joinery, choice of wood and details in each room (each room has a unique design that is carried out within the room) are validation as to why Greene & Greene are so highly regarded....

Brought our out-of-town visitor...blew her mind! Take a few seconds while on the tour to actually LOOK at each room you are being shown and you will see even more fab details than are being pointed out to you.

No visit to Pasadena is complete without a tour of The Gamble House. Highly recommended! Easy to find in a relatively small city. And there are lots of other attractions within a stone's throw.

As a matter of full disclosure, from 1978 until 1990, my business partners Bill Dancy, Robert Nailon and myself did most of the systems maintenance here on the electrical, and heating system and refinishing on occasion. We ran a Architecturally Significant Structures Restoration company. The Gamble house was always a PLEASURE to work on, even more than the many other... More
