Looking For A Splendid Historical Landmark on the Southern Tip of Bevedere Island, California?

Listed at: $48,000,000.00 the Splendid Historic Belvedere Landmark

Gordon Blanding, a wealthy San Francisco lawyer bought the Belvedere landmark home built by C.O. Parry, first treasure of Belvedere which included 30 acres on the southern tip of Belvedere Island. He spent ten years to develop a large estate, which consisted six residences and several ancillary buildings. The Blandings lived full time in the main residence known as "Locksley Hall" after the 1906 earthquake destroyed their home in San Francisco.

The world renowned Hearst Castle architect Julia Morgan designed the bronze gates and lanterns on rusticated stone pillars at entry and in the garden. It frames the magnificent garden and the breathtaking views of San Francisco, Golden Gate Bridge, Angel Island and Bay.

Upon entering the gate, one enters an enchanted setting, ambiance and beauty no other homes could match. The current owner has painstakingly restored the estate to its finest splendor and yet retained most of the historical and architectural interior and exterior detailing of this unique Landmark house which is reduced from property taxes under Mills Act.
