Austin Val Verde, situated on seventeen and a half acres, is one of the few great early 20th Century Southern California estates to have been preserved. It is a pivotal work in the career of the famous American architect Bertram Goodhue (1869-1924). Its celebrated and extensive gardens are the masterpiece of Lockwood de Forest Jr. (1895-1949), one of the most important landscape architects to have worked in Southern California.
