This one-acre estate is located at the top of Belvedere, the picturesque
peninsula jutting into San Francisco Bay north of the Golden Gate. This
historic landmark, a 1895 Classical Revival residence, was completely
restored by the architect.
The grounds have been developed into a stepped series of pleasure gardens
to complement the house and provide the owners with many different outdoor
experiences. An extensive wall and stair system of antique Chinese stone
bounds several levels of terraces on the steep site. Features include
lawn, cutting gardens, fountains, a stone-tiled swimming pool, spa, pergola,
and gardens for strolling and meditating. Historical garden features,
such as a Julia Morgan bronze gate and light standard, have also been
restored or re-created at the site.
