In groups of seven, visitors on the Historic House Tour are taken on electric shuttles from Sunnylands Center & Gardens to the former winter home of Ambassadors Walter and Leonore Annenberg.  A midcentury masterpiece with Mayan influences, the 25,000-square-foot residence was completed in 1966.  Famed architect A. Quincy Jones designed the home, which interior designers William Haines and Ted Graber decorated in the Hollywood Regency style. 

Guides on the 90-minute tour also inform guests about the rare paintings, sculptures and other works of art on display in the home, as well as the world-famous 20th-century entertainers and politicians who visited the estate.  It is recommended that visitors see the 20-minute movie, “A Place Called Sunnylands,” prior to going on the tour.  The movie is shown free to the public every hour and half hour at Sunnylands Center & Gardens. 

Sunnylands is now a high-level retreat center where global leaders and prominent experts meet to find solutions to real-world problems, promote peace, and better serve the public good. 

This tour is for ages 10 and older.
