Arcadia Home In Pasadena Design Showcase

Fifty interior designers and landscape artists will restore the stunning home in time for the showcase.

A home in Arcadia's Upper Rancho neighborhood will participate in the Pasadena Showcase House of Design in April.

The 10,433 square-foot, two-story Monterey Colonial-style home on Hampton Road was built in 1941 and designed by architect Roland Coate. It also boasts a pool, spa, 982-square-foot pool house and an asphalt tennis court.

Barker Brothers furniture store founder Lawrence Barker once owned the home.

The Pasadena Showcase is one of the oldest, largest and most successful house and garden tours in the United States. Each year, Southern California’s most prominent interior and exterior designers renovate an estate of architectural significance using the latest design products and concepts.

The event regularly draws 30,000 visitors.

A team of interior designers and landscapers will work on the Hampton Road home in preparation for next year's Showcase. The showcase also includes a bazaar and a pop-up restaurant set up underneath a tent on the tennis court.

Proceeds support the arts in the San Gabriel Valley and Los Angeles.
