Built 1915

Harriet Pullman Carolan, heiress to the Pullman fortune, commissioned Ernest Sanson, a Parisian architect, to design her home, which she christened Carolands. Willis Polk was the local supervising architect.

Carolands is one of the purest examples in the United States of the French Classical style of architecture. It emulates royal French chateaux with none of the compromises to American traditions usually found in homes of this type.

As reported by Judy Richter in the San Francisco Chronicle of 11 July 2007, Carolands was restored by the resident owners. The chateau is not open to the public, but the owners host charitable benefits.

Carolands is also California Historical Landmark 886.
