Was quite surprised by this mansion. Had a very homey feel even though it is 13,000 + sq. ft. Very well maintained and has beautiful views. I could move right in! ;<} If you visit the tower - view the house!

This is really 2 separate attractions. The Bok Towers and Gardens (a national historic landmark) is the main attraction but the Pinewood Estate and Gardens (aka the Buck Mansion) which requires a separate admission charge is on the grounds of the Bok Tower. PINEWOOD ESTATE...More
