The Didion House – 1910 – available for the first time in nearly 60 years.
Sacramento’s finest historic residence? Some say so because of its unmatched combination of style, size, location, livability and historic provenance. Designed by prominent Northern California architect Rudolph Herold (1865-1937), creator of City Hall, and many other fine public and commercial buildings and exclusive private residences. Built and first owned by Mary Ross Roan (1845-1917), early director of Sacramento Bank. The former home of celebrated author, Joan Didion.
Three stories perched atop “Poverty Ridge,” downtown Sacramento’s most exclusive neighborhood and its highest elevation, the 5069 square foot home features fine interior detail matched by few great homes of the era. Fine woodwork, elaborate decorative plaster ceilings, leaded glass, and more, have all been lovingly maintained and remain in superior condition.
The property includes a full finished basement (ca. 1900 sq. ft.) and 2nd parcel. Roof, HVAC and plumbing recently upgraded.
