Arguably the finest example of the Green and Green brothers contribution to the Arts and Crafts movement. Docent led tours are highly recommended. The beauty is often in the details, so take your time.

The Greene brothers made a name for themselves in the Pasadena area with their craftsman style mansions and homes. This well-preserved home is open for tours with well-educated docents like Eric Toro....such a pleasure to learn the history and respect this treasure has.

This is a great opportunity to see a classic craftsman home and the architecture. The tour is very informative and my kids enjoyed it. You can see this home featured in the movie "Back to the Future" as Doc Brown's home!

The Metro line stops around 1 mile from the House, and there is a bus which goes from Metro to very near the House. The directions are posted on the Gamble House website.
