One hour walking tour of a unique house. Built in 1907 for 50K when houses were being built for 1K! Proctor and Gamble fortune paid for it. Nice area to walk around and relax before your visit.

Informed docents guide you through the house explaining how life was in the last century. It is a classic Greene and Greene creation and after touring you will recognize many similar houses in the Pasadena, South... More

A visit to the Gamble House is a trip back in time to the turn of the last century. Architects Greene and Greene created this masterpiece for the Gamble family as a winter residence. It retains its original furniture, also designed by the brothers, and is maintained in pristine condition, both inside and out. Greene and Greene homes are rare... More

We went to see the Gamble house because we like the whole craftsman style and read about this home online... The construction is unbelievable... I doubt if you could get this home built today at any cost. Our docent Jack kept the whole tour interesting and FUN.... Go! You will be glad you did...

This is premier home designed by Greene and Greene is amazing for its detail, its furnishings and its historical value. In an area of historic homes, this one stands out because it's has been so well preserved and has almost all of its original furniture and art work. It is well worth the time to take a tour.

Absolutely stunning example of the brothers Greene. Probably the "Ultimate Bungalow". Great tour and a great bookstore. And the neighborhood is pleasant to walk around and enjoy a few other examples of their work, from the street anyway.

We bought tickets right when we arrived and there was no need to make any advance plans, reservations or payments The grounds were immaculate and... More

This GEM of Pasadena and Southern California is always worth a visit. To closely view the exquisite woodwork, details, and furnishings that perfectly match the Gamble house is a treat for all. The ground are beautiful, the bookstore excellent, and the proximity to the Norton SImon (a short walk) can not be beat.
