The Virginia Robinson Gardens are the period landscape, historic mansion, and botanical gardens located at the Virginia Robinson Estate (6acres) in Beverly Hills, California, United States.
The Virginia Robinson Gardens is the earliest estate in Beverly Hills, California. It was the private residence of Virginia Dryden Robinson (1877–1977) and Harry Winchester Robinson (1878–1932), heir to J. W. Robinson's.
The main house was designed in 1911 by architect Nathaniel Dryden (1849–1924), who was Virginia's father, in a Beaux Arts style. The residence is furnished with antiques and artifacts collected from around the world.
The Renaissance Revival Pool Pavilion was built in 1924 and is modeled after the Villa Pisani in the Tuscan region of Italy. Decorative panels of Sgraffito ornamentation adorn the Roman arches at the entry to the pavilion's Solarium. The Pavilion overlooks a long pool with mosaic tile wainscoting.

  • This is a beautiful home of the owners of Robinson Department Store right in the heart of Beverly Hills. The house is not very fancy or big, but the gardens and all the different types of vegetations, and trees are truly amazing.
  • Gorgeous estate. Love visiting each year for El Nido Gala.
