Built in 1919 as the gathering place for the newly established Forest Hill neighborhood, the historic Forest Hill Clubhouse is an exceptional building by acclaimed architect Bernard Maybeck, most famous for his Palace of Fine Arts in San Francisco. Surrounded by brick patios and courtyards and shaded by mature trees, the Forest Hill Clubhouse is the heart of Forest Hill and is where the residents have come together for more than 100 years for community and social events such as the annual summer BBQ, children’s Halloween Party, Holiday Party, and Easter Egg Hunt. Residents also have the ability rent the space for events, including weddings, receptions, religious celebrations, celebrations of life, as well as birthday and anniversary parties. Throughout the year the Clubhouse hosts numerous solo and concert performances by well-known local artists, theater productions, and Community Events.
The Clubhouse is one of the finest examples of the Arts and Crafts style, boasting a Great Room with a soaring beamed ceiling, a charming mezzanine and beautifully detailed original woodwork, original light fixtures with mica shades, and some original furniture. After extensive renovations from April to October of 2013, the Clubhouse shines again in its original glory – but outfitted with modern-day amenities like a brand-new state-of-the art catering kitchen and ADA accessible restrooms.
