The 1058 21st St Historic Residence offers a unique vernacular-style home that was converted into an office space over 35 years ago. This property consists of four upstairs bedrooms and two downstairs spacious living/sitting rooms – all currently utilized as office spaces. It also features two half bathrooms (No shower), a dining room, an additional storage room being used as a file room, a backyard patio alongside a 2-car garage, and a kitchen that has no oven. Spanning across 1,872 square feet of livable or rentable space, this historical property is eligible for the Mills Act, giving ownership the opportunity to take advantage of substantial property tax savings. The house features a straightforward box-shaped structure, complemented by a hip roof and protruding porches, combining influences from colonial revival and classical revival architectural styles. This design represents a vernacular approach that emerged shortly after the beginning of the 20th century, subtly foreshadowing the modern architectural trends that would later emerge. Notably, the house holds historical importance as it was constructed by three unmarried women who played a distinctive role in the growth and progress of San Diego. Golden Hill boasts a lively atmosphere with a variety of local shops, trendy cafes, and restaurants. The neighborhood has a strong sense of community, with regular events and festivals that bring residents together.
