It does not happen often when one of the most magnificent historical dwellings in a region is restored to the grandeur of its time while updated to have the modern luxuries of our time. The Gable Mansion is one of the region’s most impressive private homes and one of the State of California’s most cherished trophy properties, as reflected in the designations given as California Registered Historical Landmark No. 864. While many of its contemporaries have fallen to fire, deterioration, and changing tastes, the Gable/Barrow Mansion has maintained the integrity of both it’s construction and setting.
The California State Historical Landmark private home Gable Mansion is tantamount to living in a Work of Art as evidenced by the massive presence of its unique, masterful, grandiose architecture, its hand painted ceilings and hand stenciled wallpapers, its majestic stained glass windows, doors, and domes throughout, its manicured almost one acre landscaping containing over 600 rose bushes, its hand painted sinks, toilets, and tubs, and its abundance of ultra modern conveniences carefully camouflaged into the interior design of the 1885 old growth redwood 11,000+ square foot structure.
