Warden's House... The Good Life

Warden's House Ruins The warden's house had incredible panoramic views of the San Francisco Bay.  From its construction in 1929 until the house burned down in 1970, the warden's house's wonderful windows looked out to freedom.  Designed in Mission Revival style, the home had 17 large rooms.  The windows had sweeping views of the Golden Gate and San Francisco lights.  James Johnston was the first of four federal wardens to occupy the home.  The terraces held ornamental gardens, and a greenhouse was used to grow colorful plants.  The building was engulfed by fire in 1970 and now stands in ruins as shown above.  Red valerian flowers now carpet the building and the rose garden lives on today...
