Grant families home in downtown San Diego. The glass doors have been carved and etched. All of the carvings are handmade and done with a copper wheel, there is only one company left in the US that uses a copper wire wheel to create this Victorian Era design. In the dining room the Mahogany chair rail is original to the home. The chandelier is from a San Francisco hotel and original to Victorian time period.

This Estate is truly one of a kind, has so much history, and is a genuine period piece Queen Anne Victoria.
