Pasadena's Arts & Crafts Past

The Gamble House, by Greene & Greene

Mr. ChaCha and I took a tour of the Gamble house that was built in 1908. It was sensational in the craftsmanship and attention to detail that was typical of the Greene brothers and which was demanded by their clients, David and Mary Gamble. Even the furniture was specifically designed for the Gambles by Charles and Henry Greene.

We also took a walking tour around the area to see some other Arts & Crafts homes nearby. Here are two other homes and also some details from the neighborhood:

What a gorgeous house! I'm crossing my fingers that I get to go to graduate school in San Francisco so I can see the Winchester mansion.
