Wattles Mansion and Gardens

Lured by the pleasant climate, many wealthy Eastern and Midwestern families built winter homes in Southern California at the turn of the century. "Wintering" in California soon became a very popular pastime. "Jualita" as Gurdon Wattles, an Omaha businessman and banker, called his forty-nine acre estate, is the last remaining intact example of this phenomenon in Hollywood.

Under the care and restoration of Hollywood Heritage Inc., the modified Mission-Revival home, the terraced formal rear gardens, the sloping front yard and rose gardens are available for wedding receptions, filmings and private events.

The Wattles Estate offers the following features:

3 Acres of usable space including:

  • Formal Spanish Garden
  • Italian Rose Garden
  • Extensive Terraced Lawn
