Muckenthaler Mansion

Listed on the National Registry of Historical Places, this Mediterranean style home is not only reminiscent of other California homes like those near Santa Barbara, but of pristine Italian villas. The remaining 8.5 acres (of the original 80+ acres) of lawns and exquisite landscaping stretch around the 7,600 square-foot home. The two story building features an octagonal solarium, low pitched tile roofs, and various balconies. Donated to the city with the purpose of becoming a cultural center, the house is used primarily as a wedding venue, one of the best in the county, at that. (2017)
