The McNally Estate

STYLE

Shingle Style

LOCATION

Altadena, California

YEAR BUILT

1888

ARCHITECT

Frederick Roehrig

The McNally estate was built as a winter home in 1888 for Andrew McNally, the lead partner of Chicago’s Rand McNally Publishing. This Queen Anne - Shingle Style Victorian was designed by Pasadena’s greatest architect of the time, Frederick Roehrig. Roehrig executed this nearly 7,000 square foot estate with nine bedrooms, five bathrooms and seven fireplaces. The house itself is a masterpiece from the late 19th century, but it is the Turkish room that was added in 1897 that completes the estate and continues to impress for nearly 120 years.
