From its perch atop Bankers Hill, the mansion at 435 West Thorn Street sits as an example of both Roaring Twenties exuberance and refined European design.

“This one of a kind 1926 Italian Palladian home reflects the neo-classical symmetry and grandeur of 16th-century Andrea Palladio’s architectural vision,” promises the listing materials. Palladio was known for his symmetrical designs and was strongly influenced by ancient Greek and Roman philosophy; he’s considered one of the most influential figures in Western architecture.

The home’s original owners were lumber baron N. N. Herriman and his wife Lillian, according to local preservationist group Save Our Heritage Organization. Per the listing, the Herrimans arrived in San Diego with blueprints for the home they left behind in New York and set about reconstructing it.
