The Pasadena Showcase House of Design, one of the oldest, largest and most successful house and garden tours in the country, is now in its 52nd year. This year, the tour is taking place at a Mission Revival estate that pervades a sense of early California style. “Thought” to be designed by American architect Myron Hunt for restaurateur Leon C. Riggs, and once known as Dryborough Hall, this elegant home has maintained a good state of preservation since it was built in 1918. The main residence is about 16,000-sf, has 6 bedrooms, 5 baths and is complemented by a 2,032-sf guest house. The 2-acre property includes mature trees, a horse corral, an outdoor barbecue area, pool and spa.
Tickets cost between $35-$45 and can be ordered by mail, online at PasadenaShowcase.org or by calling 714-442-3872. Complimentary parking and shuttle service from the Pasadena Rose Bowl, Lot 1.
DATES: April 17 – May 15, 2016, except Mondays.
