The Pardee Home, including its carriage house and water tower, is a centerpiece of Oakland's Preservation Park Historic District, within a short walking distance of such downtown landmarks as Old Oakland, City Hall, and Preservation Park.
The house was built in 1868-69 by Enoch Pardee, a Gold Rush immigrant to California from the Midwest, who became an eye doctor in San Francisco after mining gold.
The Pardee Home has been described as the finest intact Italianate villa estate remaining in Northern California, and our guided tours offer a rare opportunity to see almost all of it.
