Pasadena Showcase House of Design is one of the largest and most successful house and garden tours in the country. Now in its 54th year, approximately 25,000 guests visit the Showcase annually. The success of the Pasadena Showcase House of Design has enabled our organization to make cumulative donations of more than $23 million to support community music and arts programs throughout the community.

The 2018 Showcase House, called “The Overlook”, is a majestic Mediterranean masterpiece designed by the distinguished architect Reginald Davis Johnson. It was constructed in 1915 at a cost of $14,000 for widowed sisters Ruth Hargrove and Mary Emma Baker.

A welcoming Portico leads to a front entry where carved double doors open to reveal a breathtaking two-story Grand Foyer with modern, oversized Lindsey Adelman chandeliers. Elegant details abound with marble floors, soaring ceilings, spiraling pillars, modern glass balustrades, and oversized windows and French doors which drench the rooms in light.

Aside from the Grand Foyer, the main floor of the more than 11,000 square foot main residence includes a Kitchen and Butler’s Pantry; Dining, Room; Living Room; Billiards Room and Petite Lounge; Library; Powder Room; and Family Room. Not to be forgotten is the family dog who gets his own little space beneath the stairs.

Up the main staircase is the Mezzanine, overlooking the Grand Foyer below, which leads to the Master Bedroom Suite, which includes the Morning and Exercise Rooms and the Modern Man’s Retreat; Media Room and Bath; Teen Suite; and the Au Pair’s Suite. Down the Back Stairs leads to the Back Hallway below.

The guest house encompasses a Living Room, Kitchen, Bedroom and Bath. The sweeping 1.6-acre compound includes a modern pool on lushly landscaped grounds. Exterior designs include a Kitchen Garden, Enchanted Garden, Guest House Garden, Olive Court, Bohemian Hideaway, Pool and Outdoor Kitchen, Veranda and Poolside Garden.

Renovations began anew after the estate was presented as the 2002 Pasadena Showcase House of Design. Subsequent owners have added contemporary elements to suit their personal taste and lifestyle making it an eclectic blend of unique living spaces.
