A Tour of the Pratt House

The Dining Room

A most unique space in the home, the dining room is a gem of Arts and Crafts architecture. The room is constructed with four different types of wood (redwood, Port Orford cedar, maple, and fir). The majestic ceiling rises to 15 feet, accentuating the dramatic lighting fixture designed by Greene and Greene and created by Tiffany Studios. Hand-made with rubies and jade from Mary Pratt's gem collection, the hanging fixture emulates a Chinese paper lantern with its delicate simplicity.

Built-in cabinets with clear glass panels display an impressive collection of period ceramics and stemware. From the rich tones of the woodwork to the fireplace framed by finely laid brickwork, the warmth of this elegant and intimate room is easily felt.

The Casa Barranca Estate and Winery are not open to the public.
