San Diego, CA

  • 9 Bedrooms, 9.5 Baths
  • Historically-designated Landmark Britt-Scripps Mansion, circa 1887
  • Situated on Two Parcels, Fully-restored with Entry Elevator by Experienced Hospitality Professional

  • Covered by Coveted MILLS ACT Reduced Property Taxes

A San Diego icon Inn that boasts nine period guest suites while serving as a fully-permitted Wedding and Special Events venue. Historically designated in 1971, the property holds valuable Mills Act designation with flexible NP-1 zoning on 15,000/SF (0.334 acres), two-parcel lot. Situated within one of California's highest-growth tourism destinations amidst a year-round temperate climate, the Britt-Scripps offered a signature urban hospitality investment opportunity to the discerning owner/operator.  Commanding a premiere Midtown “Banker’s Hill” address surrounded by numerous landmark restaurants and located within two blocks of Balboa Park’s rich panorama of cultural and sports attractions, the Inn enjoys easy access to public transportation and proximity to the major corridor between Downtown, Hillcrest and Lindberg Field International Airport. 

The original owner of the regal residence was Eugene Britt, a prominent Californian.  Its second owner, Edward Wyllis Scripps, founded the renowned Scripps Institute of Oceanography.

Famed as San Diego’s first home to benefit from electric street lights, the Britt was built with seven gables, a magnificent two-storey Tiffany stained glass “window wall,” three porches, including a covered, wrap-around front porch and three ornately designed chimneys.

Completely restored, purportedly at a cost of approximately 6 million dollars, the offering not only included the impressive 5,714/SF Queen Anne but also its charming guest carriage house and original stables (now used as staff work area) -- all nestled amidst classic 19th century, manicured gardens centered by a treasured “Heritage Camphor.”  The now-sold Britt-Scripps presented a distinct Southern California boutique hospitality opportunity unlike any other!
