Hidden away on a quiet cul-de-sac, this 1917 home in Hillcrest/Bankers Hill neighborhood has over 2,000 sq. ft. of living space and offers all of the modern amenities for your stay in San Diego. Balboa Park is 7 blocks away. The home's large and comfortable living room, dining room and charming backyard are perfect spots to recharge after a day of sightseeing.

The home was originally owned by Thekla Heath, a prominent scenic designer and local artist in the 1920's known for hosting artists and actors performing at the local Balboa Park and Downtown theaters.
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 . Don't want to cook? There are some of the best breakfast spots and restaurants in San Diego a short walk or drive from the house.
We purposely left the TV's in the bedrooms so the living room and dining room can be a place the family can gather without TV noise.
