McDonald Mansion Landmark Stick Eastlake restoration and rehabilitation in Santa Rosa, California


  • Interior features formal Victorian “theme rooms.”
  • New additions, subordinate in scale, create intimate retreat.
  • Extensive garden with multiple landscape structures.

This 5-year project involved restoring the original exterior of the McDonald Mansion, while making discrete additions to the rear of the property and integrating the house with its spacious gardens. The formal rooms were re-imagined as Victorian theme rooms around a central hall illuminated by a stained glass skylight. The back of the house was developed as an intimate retreat open to the private rear yard. Landscape structures include a restored gazebo, stone gateposts, a green house and a formal pool plaza surrounded by arbors.
