The concept for the Grand Tradition Estate and Gardens was conceived to answer the growing need for a special event venue in the Fallbrook, California area. The founders — the Story, Martin, and McDougal families — dreamed of a special destination that would capture the romance and opulent gardens of another era with a sense of place steeped in romance.


The Percy Davis Ranch was originally a 35-acre estate that was purchased to create this special destination. The original Davis home was taken down to design a new structure that would serve the exact needs to host weddings and special events.

The founders were tireless in their research to ensure the authenticity of their design for the Beverly Mansion. The Platt House in Los Angeles; was a design inspiration with many of the artistic details drawn from a Victorian aesthetic and were lovingly handmade on-site to replicate the timeless craftsmanship of the day. This includes original gazebo heart-shaped panels and shingled siding still visible today.
