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

If you are interested in this type of architecture, you will likely enjoy visiting The Gamble House very much. Much of it is restricted, however. The room at the top with its 360 degree view is a nice surprise. The gift shop on the grounds is high-end, featuring upscale pottery, lamps, books, jewelry and more.

We visited the Gamble house on a recent visit to Pasadena. The tour was reasonably priced and worth the time. The house is beautiful along with many other historical houses in Pasadena. Even in the winter, the grounds were beautifully maintained. Anyone who loves history/architecture will love this stop.

Toured Gamble House during our Rose Bowl trip to Pasadena. Our docent was knowledgeable, and the tour was very enjoyable.

I'm positive the curators hate that some come here to see a filming location from Back to the Future, but it is neat to see Doc's house from 1955. While you're here, might as well check out the other nearby Back to the Future filming locations.

One of the best examples of an Arts and Crafts style home, which Pasadena is famous for. Take one of the 1-2 hour tours if time permits, and get reservations online. The house is magnificent and apparently only took 10 months to build. Museum now maintained by both City of Pasadena and USC. If you like early 20th century architecture,... More

Brought out of town family here with my children. Place was nice and quiet and friendly. Part of the charm and history of Pasadena. Worth a visit for people who likes architecture and furniture
