"Surmounting one of the low, wide-stretching hills of the Livermore Valley, a short distance inland from the Bay of San Francisco, stands a picturesque, castle-like structure, the 'Hacienda del Pozo de Verona,' residence of Mrs. Phoebe A. Hearst. The white walls of the building, accented by two commanding towers, rise above the trees—dark evergreen conifers, white oaks, cork elms — which richly clothe the hills' lower slopes, their higher and more distant ascents forming a forested background." Stately Homes of California, Porter Garnett, 1915
The estate was originally begun by Phoebe Apperson Hearst's son, William Randolph, who hired A.C. Schweinfurth, one of the first to architects to design "Mission" style buildings. Phoebe took over the project and hired Julia Morgan, later the architect for "The Hearst Castle" at San Simeon, to complete the estate in a style called by many "Mediterranean and California Mission."
After the original 53 room mansion was destroyed by fire in 1969, the club designed a new clubhouse in the tradition of the Mediterranean and California Mission style of the original building that stands today.
