United States of America, California, San Mateo County, Hillsborough
Edgecourt (Hillsborough, California)
The house, built by Alfred Poett, was later owned by the Burlingame Country Club after being extensively remodeled by A. Page Brown. It closely resembled a Tudor-style "cottage." The estate, when owned by George A. Pope, included a 27-acre garden and an Arthur Brown-designed dance pavilion, built for his daughter. The house burned down in 1946 after the Pope's death and is now a subdivision. Between 1993 and 1998, the entrance gates were restored. Spruce and eucalyptus trees planted on either side of the road may have existed from the original estate.
Mrs. Pope also had a summer home in Lake Tahoe, CA. See CA073.
