Pasadena Showcase House

The 54th Annual Pasadena Showcase House of Design, one of the largest and most successful house-and-garden tours in the country, is currently open to the public until May 20. This year, more than 25 designers are sharing their talents throughout the home and property.

Built in 1915, this year’s Mediterranean-style residence, situated on a hill, has a view all the way to Catalina Island. “The Overlook” was designed by architect Reginald Davis Johnson for his widowed sisters and constructed for $14,000. The Overlook was previously showcased in 2002, and its subsequent owners have since had it renovated with the addition of select contemporary elements, while still retaining its casual, country feel.

The Pasadena Showcase House for the Arts (PSHA) is a nonprofit California corporation whose members donate their time and talents to produce the annual PSHA. Founded in 1948, the members of PSHA are united by their belief in the power of beauty and music. For tickets, visit
