Retro Martini Party - February 23, 2018

The special venue for PSPF's 2018 Retro Martini Party was the George & Marcia Barrett Residence (popularly known as the William Holden Estate) in the historic Deepwell neighborhood. Designed by master builder Joe Pawling (who constructed some of Wexler & Harrison's most admired designs), the residence is sited on four full lots with spectacular mountain views to the west. Built for the Barrett's in 1955, the house was later purchased by actor William Holden who owned the property from 1966 until 1977. The modernist residence is especially notable for the elegance and purity of its post-and-beam construction. (Photos Mood Creative and PSPF)
