Designed by the architectural firm of Richard Requa & Henry Jackson and built by Walter Trepte between 1929 and 1932, the “Bohannan Estate” is one of Mission Hills most prominent estates. Situated on a stunning 1.35 acre lot and offering over 5,500 sq ft of living space, this home offers breathtaking views of Mission Bay, La Jolla, USD, and Mission Valley. Entering the driveway, you immediately experience the grandeur of this spectacular home as the expansive landscape and structure come into full view. With the original light fixtures and massive front door to greet you, the formal foyer features beautiful oak hardwood floors, a grand chandelier, access to an elevator, original phone booth and a wrapped staircase to the upper level. Notice the elegant use of arches and curved walls, which soften the large interior space, along with the attention to detail and unique craftsmanship throughout. The spacious formal living room and dining room offer the perfect space to entertain. While the beautifully landscaped backyard and garden boasting two firepits, water feature, and multiple patio areas creates more space to entertain on those gorgeous San Diego evenings. The kitchen provides dual ovens, cooktops and dishwashers, an entertainer’s dream. Each bedroom on the upper level offers balconies promoting indoor-outdoor living. The patio off the third bedroom overlooks the meticulously landscaped sunken courtyard with water fountain made with rare Malibu Potteries tiles which were only produced from 1926 to 1932 and connects the guest house to the main home.
