This is our fern house

This is our fern house. Yep, it is very green and very old (100 years old!!). This house was build in 1907 by a famous architect called Samuel Tilden Norton who also designed Greek Theater in Griffith Park. The house was first owned by a member of well-known pioneer family called John B. Amestoy. Mr. Amstoy was the son of Domingo Amstory, an early property owner in San Fernando Valley. You can find the rancho they owned in Encino still today with a little museum about the family. Our fern house is a HPOZ property with Mills Act. gG also loves the backyard with 100 year old barn.
