Architectural beauty has the capacity to transcend time, space, form and function. On rare occasions, a masterpiece presents itself that surpasses all barriers so that it no longer can be singularly described. This Bankers Hill residence encapsulates original Georgian historic opulence, coalescing seamlessly into a masterstroke of contemporary elegant living. Our world has evolved and so has the way we live our lives. Casual elegance is not just a passing trend, it has become an integral way of life and entertainment. This residence has evolved into a modern storybook, yet never leaving behind the grace and pedigree of its origins. It is a Mills Act recipient, which carries a tremendous advantage of property tax reduction for historic homes, yet you never have to give up the technology, efficiency or glamour of a modern SoCal lifestyle.

The residence is an estate of the highest quality. The original home was restored and reimagined through every room, wall and facet of the structure. The floorplan was reconstructed to provide a luxurious experience and over 1,100sf of living space was added. The spectacular formal living, dining and family rooms currently serve as the pulse of a modern, carefree living experience. The heart and soul of the home is the stunning kitchen, wet and dry butler pantries, and breakfast enclave which now serves as the formal dining room. Double the size of the original kitchen, the space is an expression of the intelligence of design, amid an abundance of beauty. The centerpiece is a Viking Limited Edition Series range. With a production run of only 110 units, its bold artistry still puts form and function front and center. The rest of the kitchen is awash in Carrara marble counters, a massive island, an abundance of cabinetry and storage, and a full suite of chef inspired appliances. The estate features a quality primary suite, which views west to the harbor. The primary bath and wardrobe are as elegant as they are functional. You could get lost in the massive Carrara Tile Grotto shower, or soak all evening in the step up adjoining tub. The remaining bedrooms all have en-suite baths and offer the same quality experience. A beautiful breezeway above the backyard connects the main residence to a guest suite with its own en-suite bath. Perhaps the newest focal point of the home is the reimagined backyard that was created with a built-in BBQ, outdoor Sauna and Spa, custom lighting and music, relaxing lounge area and another spectacular outdoor shower. You may never leave home again. But if you do decide to leave, this home has been retrofitted and expanded with an equally amazing garage system. The original garage has been modified with complete Historic Commission approval to enable the parking of the largest oversize vehicles. In addition, the adjoining bay has been retrofitted with a car lift and now 3 of your most prized possessions can easily and safely be housed onsite. Bankers Hill is the Crown Jewel of San Diego. The stately homes and estates beckon to a bygone era, yet they seamlessly mix with our 21st Century adaptation. Welcome home, your estate awaits.
