Property Description

This iconic Craftsman in the heart of Hillcrest was created by master architect William S. Hebbard-perhaps most famous for his partnership w/Irving Gill & the Marston House in nearby Balboa Park. It's the first time on the market for The Blankenburg Residence, commissioned for the family in 1908. Over $300K was spent in improvements in the last 5 yrs. inc. new furnace & foundation-this is a golden opportunity to continue the process to polish this gem and make it shine. See supplemental remarks & docs.
Rich in what are believed to be original characteristics and details including double hung wood windows with newer frames and screens (most in operable condition), 2 sets of operable pocket doors, fireplace, bay window, large baseboards, picture rails, built-in buffet, butler's pantry, and french doors to formal dining room. This property is a likely candidate for Historic Designation and the Mills Act discount on property taxes. Copies of the original plans signed by Hebbard, historic photos of the property, and plans and invoices for work done in recent years are available for Buyer review. A garage stood on the site at one time, pad is still there. Upstairs bathroom was fully remodeled, other projects were started and major permitted work was completed on the foundation of the house which is accessed through its own door from the rear of the property. A new furnace has been installed. Once lived as two units- upper and lower. Site and floor plans (including rebuilt garage) are attached as docs. Pro Forma as a possible vacation rental is also in docs.
