Bankers Hill (Park West) house description

Sitting atop Banker's Hill, perhaps the most historic and romantic of San Diego's neighborhoods, is the Sherman Doig House (SDhouse). Built in 1887, this historic privately owned Victorian home is available for overnight stays and offers the intimacy of a bed and breakfast in the center of 'Americas Finest City'.

The rooms are charming and eclectic. The neighborhood is delightful and centrally located. Visit our web site for more info: sdhouse.us

                      SDhouse is located in the long established neighborhood Park West, an area which also acquired the name 'Bankers Hill' because of its reputation as a home for the affluent. Bankers Hill is an ideal place to go for an afternoon walk. The walk will offer you spectacular views of the city and the intrigue of some of San Diego's finest historic homes.

                      Some of the popular Bankers Hill restaurants include Bertrand at Mr. A's that has amazing views, Busalacci's, Cucina Urbana, The Hob Nob Cafe, and The Bankers Hill Restaurant. As a result of this idealistic location, the SDhouse is conveniently located to many attractions & amenities Bankers Hill is one of San Diego's nicest upscale residential neighborhoods located west of Balboa Park and east of Little Italy.

                      Bankers Hill is best known for some of the grandest homes in San Diego and the incredible hillside view that looks over downtown San Diego and the Pacific Ocean. Banker's Hill has some of the best examples of high end residential architecture that dates back to the late 1800's. Examples of Victorian, Craftsman, Revival, and Emerging Modern homes can be seen throughout the Bankers Hill area. Many of the original mansions that were built here have been restored to their original beauty and some have been converted into professional buildings used by lawyers, doctors, dentists, and small companies.

                      With views of the Pacific Ocean and Balboa Park, Bankers Hill is home to young professionals who want to live in an urban pedestrian setting. As many homes are actually positioned up on a 'hill' overlooking Downtown, San Diego Bay, Coronado, and the airport, it is common to see people spending their time watching the airplanes landing and the sun setting across the water.

                       

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2013

                      About the owner: As vrbo listers since 2007, we have had dozens of satisfied travelers stay in our original listing located nearby in Coronado. We purchased this magnificent historic Victorian home in 2013 and have completed some minor cosmetic modifications to accommodate those looking for a unique vacation rental.

                      Why the Owner Chose Bankers Hill (Park West):
                      The home is currently under stewardship of the trustee of the Bertha Stroud Family Trust and was purchased not only to establish a legacy estate for the heirs of the trust, but to share this historic landmark with locals and visitors to San Diego. This property was chosen because, just like the namesake of the trust, it is eclectic, whimsical, and possesses a unconventional character that can best be described as eccentrically unique.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      For travelers looking for the charm of a bed and breakfast, but prefer the privacy of a vacation rental with the ability to make their own meals - this home is a perfect choice. Scroll down to 'my other listings' if you have a smaller group and would like only a portion of the house. Additional information can also be found on our web site at sdhouse.us The SDhouse is also available for event hourly rental and can supply optional concierge service to assist with any details.
