Bankers Hill (Park West) house description

This very special historic home built in 1917 has over 2,100 sq. ft. of living space in a quiet cul-de-sac with Spruce Canyon across the street, but has been beautifully updated and offers all of the modern amenities for your stay in San Diego. The home was originally owned by Thekla Heath, a prominent scenic designer and local artist known for hosting artists and actors performing at the local theaters. For virtual tour, see link at the bottom of the page.

The kitchen offers a Viking 6 burner range with a griddle (great for pancakes on a lazy day) and two ovens, a super quiet Meile dishwasher, and a wine refrigerator. The home features an extra large Dining Room and Living Room for those nights when you feel like staying in. Each bedroom has their own TV, and the Master Bedroom and Den have 42' flat screens and DVD players. The Master bath has double sinks and extra large walk-in shower. The guest bathroom has it’s original Orchid colored bathtub! The Outdoor patio has a gas BBQ, outdoor table for six, additional outdoor seating and a fountain. The closest market is Whole Foods but Trader Joe's, Vons, wine shops and cheese shops are close by.

The home is furnished with antiques and art to fit the period of the home, so families with children should use caution.

Many of the homes in Banker's Hill are designated as historically significant - check local listing for Garden and Home tours. It's walking distance to Balboa Park and the many museums there. Only 5 minutes to the famous San Diego Zoo, 10 minutes to Sea World and the Airport but the home is secluded and quiet.

The great restaurants and night life of Hillcrest, Banker's Hill, Little Italy, the Gas Lamp District, Seaport Village and San Diego Convention Center are just 3 to 10 minutes away; not to mention the shopping at Fashion Valley. Beaches and the bay are also close by, and we're freeway close for trips to nearby La Jolla, Del Mar, Coronado, Legoland and all that San Diego has to offer.
