The Historic Britt-Scripps Inn & Wedding Venue $2,900,000

A veritable Southern California icon, today a luxury, 5,714/sf, three-storey Inn & fully permitted Wedding/Special Events venue, offers a signature urban hospitality investment opportunity to the discerning owner/operator innkeeper. Historically designated in 1971, the property also holds valuable Mills Act designation with flexible NP-1 zoning on a 15,000/sf land area (0.334 acres). In addition to the main Inn, the manicured grounds include various patios, herb gardens and a 135 year old Camphor Tree as well as a detached Carriage House Guest Suite and the original stables, the latter now used for a staff work/prep area.

Situated within one of California's high-growth tourism destinations, the regal Britt-Scripps further boasts a prestigious Midtown/Banker’s Hill address surrounded by numerous landmark restaurants. Situated within two blocks of Balboa Park’s rich panorama of cultural and sports attractions, the Britt-Scripps offers easy access to San Diego public transportation and proximity to the major corridor between Downtown, Hillcrest and Lindberg Field International Airport.

Masterfully restored at a cost of approximately 6 million dollars to authentically reflect its quality Queen Anne architecture and craftsmanship, -- and recently appraised well above its current asking price --, The Historic Britt-Scripps Inn presents a distinct Southern California boutique hospitality opportunity unlike all others!
