1 day
Space Available

Tour Fare: $145

Tucked away in Modjeska Canyon sits the acclaimed estate of Helena Modjeska, world-renowned Shakespearean actress from 1888 until 1906. Helena came to America from Poland and performed on stages across the U.S. for nearly two decades. In the off season she made her home in this idyllic retreat which she named Arden. Designed by famed New York architect Stanford White, this rambling white cottage features delightful porches, a Palladian window, and picturesque gables. The grounds and surrounding terrain are a sight to behold, with redwood trees, rose gardens, winding trails, fountains, even English yews and crown of thorns. Afterwards, enjoy an included lunch at Mimi’s Cafe before we continue to Placentia, where we’ll tour the 1902 Bradford Estate, a Queen Anne Victorian-style home with 15 rooms featuring original architecture and furnishings.
