Kohl Mansion





**Please note that Kohl Mansion is not setting up appointments or booking dates for 2020 until late December 2018.**

Surrounded by 40-acres of oak woodlands, Burlingame's historic Kohl Mansion is an intimate and unique venue. Erected in 1914 for Frederick Kohl, the rose-brick building was deemed a National Historic Landmark in 1982. The Tudor-style mansion's detailed architecture is at the heart of this majestic setting from the grand staircase to the Morning Room's crisp, white walls. The astonishing Great Hall featuring vast ceilings overlooks the courtyard and spacious grounds leading to the perfectly-manicured English Rose Garden. The sun shines through the enormous Gothic bay windows in the Library and highlights a marble fireplace and elegant grand piano. Exclusive use of this estate provides the versatility of a private ceremony indoors or an elaborate reception beneath the stars.
