The “Xanadú Mansion” Golf Course Club House, located on the San Bernardino crags, was designed by architects Covarrocas and Govantes for French American millionaire Irenee Dupont de Nemours. The four storey mansion, with 11 bedrooms and adjoining baths, three large terraces, seven balconies and a private dock, was named “Xanadu”, after the exotic Palace built by the legendary Chinese warrior and conqueror Kublas Khan, as described by the English poet Samuel Taylor.
