The Julia Morgan House, a historic residential masterpiece, is one of Sacramento’s most architecturally distinguished homes. Designed in the 1920s as a private residence, the home was bequeathed to Sacramento State in 1966 with a request that the house be used to enhance the University’s mission of teaching and learning, research, and public service. In 1999 the home was extensively remodeled and carefully restored by University Enterprises, Inc. (UEI) to preserve its authenticity.
Julia Morgan, the first woman licensed to practice architecture by the state of California, is regarded as America’s greatest female architect. Best known as the designer of the world-renowned Hearst Castle in San Simeon, California, Julia Morgan also designed some of the most distinguished homes on the West Coast in the early twentieth century.
The elegant house features a dramatic entry with teakwood banister, living and dining rooms with adjoining sun rooms, an office, and catering kitchen. Two master suites grace the upstairs. The grounds are flanked with trellises of wisteria and the patio is surrounded by flowering shrubs and green lawns that focus on a fountain.
