After we left Napa, J announces that we are going to the Dynasty house. You know where they filmed Dynasty in the 80s. I’m stoked. I loved Dynasty almost as much as Dallas! I’m mildly surprised that the mansion wasn’t in Colorado after all but CA.
The stove was from the galley of a cruise ship. The family that owned the house made their fortunes in cruise ships and named the house Filoli. I prefer to call it the Dynasty house.
I think this dining room was in the first season of Dynasty.
It was such a cool kitchen I had to include another shot. Man the meals I could make at that stove!
This hallway looked really familiar to me too…
Loved the main room.
This library was cool, but not enough book shelves and books for me.
These are the famous Dynasty stairs. I can remember Fallon coming down them.
The ballroom was gorgeous and enormous. Stunning wall murals on each wall.
Then we went outside to explore the gardens.
The owners of Filoli loved their garden. It stretches beyond the eye can see.
My only twinge of disappointment was the lack of Dynasty related stuff in the giftshop. I’d pay $5-10 for a cast photo in front of the mansion. Or a Dynasty house mug.
Jenny, this last pic is for you. I think this is the driveway you were mentioning in your comment.
