LA aaroe
In the Pasadena of the early 1920s, the building of a million-dollar home created a sensation. As the first of these mansions began appearing on Orange Grove, the street got a new name: Millionaires’ Row. Today, only a handful of those mansions remain. One, built in 1924 as a summer home for a Chicago judge and his wife, has just been painstakingly restored and enhanced. In this issue, we invite you to explore the timeless Terrace Villa.

A masterpiece of Millionaires’ Row reemerges

One of the last of the fabled mansions on Pasadena’s legendary Millionaires' Row has just been unveiled after a meticulous turnkey transformation. The painstaking project focused on preserving the three-level home’s lavish Italian Revival beauty … while enhancing it for modern living.
Set on a knoll 600 feet from Orange Grove, north of the Tournament of Roses headquarters, the 8,000 square foot Terrace Villa is widely considered the epitome of 1920's high style Period Revival residential architecture in Pasadena. It commands sweeping views across the onetime Ambassador College campus, overlooking the nearly two-acre Great Lawn all the way to the San Gabriel Mountains. more »
