The Pitcairn House

In 1906 Charles and Henry Greene designed this house as a residence for Robert Pitcairn, Jr. of Pittsburgh, PA. The house is in Pasadena, California and features a stained shingle exterior, cantelivered sleeping porches, massive exposed beams and broad terraces that integrate the house with the site. The private Westridge School purchased the house for $50,000 in 1973, employing architects Roland E. Coate, Jr. and Tim Anderson to refurbish the house and adapt it for school use. Furthur restoration work was commissioned by the architectural firm of Moule and Polyzoides in 1966. The house is located at 324 Madeline Street on the campus of Westridge School
