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
