The Annenberg Estate was home for Walter and Leonore Annenberg and has been the site of many informal state meetings in past times and it continues to host top level summits. It was designed by Quincy Jones.
The design uses overhangs to shield the interiors from the direct sun, plus walls of glass to allow the climate's brightness to fill the rooms.
Leonore Annenberg's deep love of flowers and nature is reflected in the cactus and rose gardens that abut the house and terrace. Interior rooms flow into each other with the same open expansiveness as the surrounding landscape.
