At the peak of the prestigious historic walking district of Bankers Hill near balboa park, this one of a kind 1926 Italian Palladian home reflects the neo-classical symmetry and grandeur of 16th century Andrea Palladio’s architectural vision. While it could be found alongside the grand villas of Lake Como, San Diego is proud to claim it as its own. Featuring a grand centralized hall graced by porticos on both floors, this masterpiece features pilasters, magnificent Venetian windows, a quartet of arched French doors and curved entry ways throughout. The intricate wooden floors, abundant gumwood windows, doors, beams, and even a built-in confessional, display the artful and painstaking craftsmanship of bygone years and the influence of the original owners, lumber baron N. N. Herriman, and his wife. Lillian. The Herrimans travelled by rail from New York to San Diego. They brought the blueprints of the home they left behind, and replicated it at 435 West Thorn Street. A recessed dome overlooks a grand dining room that opens out to a spacious back veranda trellised by wisteria and red trumpet vines. Original wooden beams crown the palatial living room warmed by a welcoming, over-sized fireplace. Expand the living area by opening a trio of beautiful arched French doors into a parlor room with bar and resplendent with dramatic Venetian arched windows. The gourmet kitchen is over 300 square feet with all Viking appliances, double oven, walk-in pantry, large iron pot holder, French chef’s island and separate eating area, with arched doors leading to the veranda on one side and to the side patio on the other. Ten foot walls, and six-foot arched windows stream in natural light, and make this a wonderful gathering place for family and friends. Coved ceilings throughout complement the soaring walls. Exquisite original built-in cabinets adorn the upstairs library, which features an arched confessional gateway, reflecting previous residence by a Bishop. The library French doors open onto a balustraded grand balcony overseeing the front of the residence. Original, one-of-a-kind light fixtures illuminate every room. The back office opens onto a loggia that reveals spectacular views of downtown San Diego and the Bay. A downstairs room may be used as a bedroom, office, studio or playroom. A detached guest house, with a full kitchen and steam shower, an opulent over-sized Jacuzzi, mature landscaping and Venetian fountains are hidden within the property’s Italian espalier garden walls. A stand up, 1200 square foot attic provides for ample storage and leads to a hosting rooftop with sweeping 360 degree views of downtown, San Diego Bay and Point Loma. No better place to watch Fourth of July fireworks shows! An air-conditioned 200 square foot basement provides for wine storage. Easy walking distance to Hillcrest, Balboa Park, Little Italy and Mission Hills..
