Magnificent Doheny Gardens

4 Oct

Sometimes viewing a grand estate is all it takes to get my creative juices flowing.  Greystone Mansion, also known as the Doheny Estate, delivers.  It was built by Edward Doheny, an oil magnate in the early 1900s, for his son and daughter-in-law.  This beautiful property is located in Beverly Hills, California.

The gates open onto a winding drive that takes you up a hill...

Greystone's reflection pool is a quiet place to relax and think...

The fountain at Greystone is now filled with plants...

The path through the allee is paved with beautiful flagstone tilesPhotos via Friends of Greystone Mansion at: www.greystonemansion.org
