Virginia Robinson Estate and Tours of Four Exquisite Beverly Hills Gardens
The Garden Tour is a multi-faceted day, considered “…. the most glamorous (event) of its kind in Southern California.” For the only time during the year, the entire Robinson residence is open for the day, decorated by the finest florists and designers.
The Beverly House: William Randolph Hearst’s mini-castle, where he lived with Marion Davies, is an architectural masterpiece with its famous gardens laid out by Paul Thiene in the 1920s. The property includes lavish reflecting pools, old-growth trees and expansive grounds.
Hernando’s Hideaway: Originally built by the owner of the Beverly Hills Hotel and occupied by hotelier Hernando Courtwright, a frequent guest of Virginia Robinson, this Gable and Wyant treasure has charm to spare: hanging gardens, passion fruit vines lining the tennis court fence, a playhouse courtyard and a secret garden lined with bottle art.
A Hilltop With A View: an Italianate villa with recirculating water that feeds three waterfalls into a placid lake, a grand lawn with colorful flowers and citrus borders, manicured hedges that include a maze and a glorious pool with a view of the canyon.
The Best Exotic Bel Air Estate: Climb deep into this 8-acre canyon that boasts a series of garden rooms, from koi ponds to Balinese sundecks to terraced vegetable gardens. There is even an art studio and a hillside amphitheater.
PLEASE NOTE: Due to parking limitations, this house is a BONUS for all Concierge and VIP Van ticket holders only.
