Old house enthusiasts who live in Santa Clara can tour a beautiful example of a California Arts and Crafts home at the Headen-Inman House. Located at 1509 Warburton Avenue, it was originally part of the Headen estate and was moved to its present Santa Clara property in 1985. The house is named for two of its past owners but is owned by the city of Santa Clara. The woodwork on the interior of the house is exquisite. The four-paneled front door and beveled light fixtures are beautifully preserved examples of typical Arts and Crafts movement features.
