Casa de Parley Johnson

Today was an open house fund-raiser for the Assistance League of Downey. The event offered participants the chance to tour the 6,000 square foot Spanish Colonial Revival house designed by Roland Coate. It was an impressive visit. The style is very appealing with the archways and large rooms.

I love the balconies that virtually surround the house. The house was designed for prominent citrus rancher Parley Johnson and his wife Gypsy. After her death in 1986, the house was bequeathed to the  Assistance League of Downey.
