This handsome Queen Anne, 5,714/sf, three-storey Inn & fully-permitted Wedding and Special Events venue offers a signature urban hospitality investment opportunity to the discerning owner/operator and aspiring innkeeper. Historically designated in 1971, the property also holds valuable Mills Act designation with flexible NP-1 zoning on a 15,000 square foot land area (0.334 acres).
Perfectly situated within one of California's high growth tourism destinations and commanding a premiere Midtown location surrounded by numerous Banker's Hill landmark restaurants, the legendary icon inn offers a short two block walk to Balboa Park’s rich panorama of cultural and sports attractions that include fabulous museums, magnificent gardens and a vast array of performing arts and recreation complexes.
The Inn's location further provides easy access to everything that brings visitors from around the world to San Diego and is conveniently situated near public transportation along the major corridor between Downtown, Hillcrest and Lindberg Field International Airport.
The San Diego landmark, first owned by prominent Californian Eugene Britt and then by Edward Wyllis Scripps, founder of the famed Scripps Institute of Oceanography, was built with seven gables, bay windows, hand-carved oak staircase, two-story original stained-glass window wall, three porches including a covered wrap-around front porch and three ornately designed chimneys that no longer are in use. Completely restored at a cost of approximately 6 million dollars to authentically reflect the quality of its original construction and craftsmanship -- and recently appraised well above its current asking price --, the treasured Britt-Scripps now presents a distinct Southern California boutique hospitality opportunity unlike any other!
