Embrace the grandeur of San Diego's past with the iconic Long-Waterman Mansion. Once the residence of California Governor Robert Whitney Waterman, this exquisite Victorian estate is nestled in the prestigious Bankers Hill neighborhood. Occupying a vast corner double lot of 14,415 square feet, this Queen Anne Victorian-style masterpiece, constructed in 1889, lies within a leisurely stroll of Balboa Park. Spanning 6,180 square feet, the main residence is a testament to timeless elegance, including expansive attic space. Adjacent to the main dwelling, the property offers substantial parking facilities for up to 10 cars and features the original Carriage House offering 1,530 square feet under mixed-use zoning. The mansion's breathtaking architecture, highlighted by intricate ironwork, welcomes you. Inside, discover a world of detailed craftsmanship with unique carved designs adorning the staircase, a mahogany fireplace, and windows detailed with stained glass, setting a tone of warm hospitality. The estate is richly appointed with hand-carved woodwork, four distinct fireplaces, Italian tile, original stained glass, and elegant solid brass fixtures. A generous porch and an attic offering 1,820 square feet of additional space, including a bedroom with sweeping city and bay views and a widow’s walk, elevate the living experience. The outdoor space features a beautiful historic magnolia tree, a splendid jacaranda tree, a towering camphor tree, and a productive avocado tree, enhancing the property’s charm.
