You can not go inside but the outside was worth the visit. Across the street was a pink house he built for his son. Full review by Judy H

This is a very cool mansion to check out, from outside that is. You cannot enter as it is a private club. Full review by 63impala

Hi there! So, the mansion was built by lumber magnate William Carson, using workers who were out-of-work due to a lumber recession. It took two years to build, and was completed in 1885. How much it cost is a tricky question, since Carson was using his own workers, and his own redwood (and other) lumber. In my research, I have not been able to find a consistent answer, but the $80,000 cost I've seen quoted seems right! The house is currently owned by the Ingomar Club, a private club--which unfortunately means that there are no tours of the house, no way to see the interior (which is spectacular). The house is over 16,000 square feet, with 18 rooms (not including the big club dining room, added much later by the Ingomar Club). Hope you get to see it!
