The Morgan Estate History


The Morgan Estate is an architectural masterpiece said to have played host to presidents, kings, queens and celebrities. Originally built in 1914 and meticulously restored by its current owners, this magnificent home is one of the finest examples of Tudor and Jacobean revival architecture in the United States. The Morgan Estate is one of the grandest homes in California; locally, only Filoli and the Chateau Carolands compare. Inspired by Speke Hall in Great Britain, The Morgan Estate was built by Percy Tredegar Morgan, a San Francisco businessman whose many accomplishments included starting the California Wine Association, which was the largest winery in the world at that time. Mr. Morgan was also one of the first trustee’s of Stanford University.


The home’s historic designation is rewarded with a tremendous property tax savings, resulting in taxes that are equivalent to homes one-tenth its price.
