What you'll do
Be part of a select few who get to learn about the history and unique design style of this private Hollywood estate. Guests will be treated to a wine and cheese reception and assigned to a guided tour of the home led by one of the family members. There will be plenty of time to leisurely explore the beautiful garden and front lawn of this magnificent historically significant home. Bring your friends to enjoy a lovely summer evening in this Mediterranean and Spanish colonial revival design treasure. This is a unique chance to glimpse into an architectural gem. There is no specific dress code for these events but we encourage you to dress up, channel your vintage and classic style, bring out your hats, and don't forget your cameras as the space lends itself for great pictures to capture this one of a kind experience.

Where you'll be
The Wattles Mansion and Gardens, nicknamed 'Jualita', was designed by Myron Hunt and Elmer Grey, two prominent L.A. architects, for Nebraska financier Gurdon Wattles in 1909. Designed in a Mediterranean and Mission style, this historical site is located in the heart of Hollywood and sits on 47 acres as an stunning example of SoCal landscape architecture. The home is part of the City's Wattles Garden Park located on the edge of Runyon Canyon.
