Tim Burton lived there. Charles White had his studio in the cupola of the bridge. Marcel Duchamp lived there—he had a fountain installed in his apartment*. Now, other people live there: designers, musicians, artists, collectors, tinkers, tailors, soldiers, spies. You can live at the Castle Green, too, for a boatload of money. Or you can just tour the place this Sunday, and sneak a peek at more than twenty individual apartments and entertaining spaces, including the Grand Salon, the Moorish Room, the Turkish Room, the Palm Room, the Sunroom and Veranda, and the Penthouse. This tour, and its seasonal counterpart in December, are the only times the public is admitted to one of Pasadena’s best-known, but least visible, landmarks.
Proceeds benefit the endless restoration efforts of Friends of the Castle Green.
