Why We Like This Place

The Flood Mansion is a symphony of classical styles—Italian Renaissance, Rococo, Tudor and Georgian. This elegant building, constructed in 1915, has remained well preserved since Mrs. Flood donated her home to the Religious of the Sacred Heart in 1939. Although the building is now used as a private school, it's available for special events after school hours and on weekends.

The Mansion is impressive: Its Grand Hall is 140 feet long with marble floors and unrivaled views of the bay; the architecturally complex Reception Room boasts a magnificent coffered ceiling, painted murals in golds, blues and greens, a marble fireplace, and a parquet floor. And, weather permitting, a pretty enclosed courtyard off of the Grand Hall is available for outdoor gatherings. The Flood Mansion is definitely the place for a stately and elegant party.
