This country estate was begun in 1915 as the home of mining entrepreneur William B. Bourn II. It was the last great residential commission of one of California's most important architects, Willis Polk. Polk designed a modified Georgian style country house. Subsequently the carriage house and garden pavilion were executed by Arthur Brown. The formal gardens were created by Bruce Porter. In 1937 the estate was acquired by Mr. and Mrs. William P. Roth. Built in Georgian Revival style with its formal gardens, Filoli is an outstanding example of the grand estates of the late 1800s.
