About 270 Lincoln Dr

Rarely does an iconic property such as this come on the market, in the heart of Ventura in Hobson Heights. Designed by Burkett ( Architect) and built by Ralph Lloyd, founder of the Lloyd Corporation, The Lloyd Corp went on to build one of the Great Mansions of Beverly Hills, as well, donated the Poinsettia Pavillion, formerly the Ventura Women's Center. 270 Lincoln was then purchased by Walter and Edith (Hobson) Hoffman in 1956 who were instrumental in founding The Ventura County Museum. The Hobson-Hoffman Family lived at 270 Lincoln from 1956 to 1972 when the property was sold to the Phillips family and remains to this day. This incredible architectural structure is over 10,422 sq. feet with epic ocean views, possessing the grandeur that you would expect: imposing grand salon with original parquet wood floors, quintessential Spanish family room boasting walls of windows centered around a huge fireplace, library with hand carved crown moldings, cabinetry and original hardwood floors, also a massive dining room for entertaining and gathering. The stunning Master suite has unobstructed ocean views with dual dressing areas, original ceramic tile work and hardwood floors. There are four ensuite bedrooms, one on the main level and 3 on the upper level. Every room has either an ocean view or magnificent view of the central courtyard. As with many properties of this magnitude, maid's quarters and maid service areas have separate access removed from the family living spaces for family privacy. The kitchen is original but modernized, with multiple work stations. In addition to all the exemplary details and epochal design, there is more: a fully functional chapel with altar once possessing relics, original stained glass, architectural arches and church pews. Additionally, the sacristy was used by the local priest for services to the Hobson-Hoffman Family. The Chapel and Sacristy could easily be converted to modernized uses such as wine room, billiards room or home theater. A truly remarkable testament of enduring faith and family, 270 Lincoln Drive is not to be missed. The contiguous lot (0.49 acres with garage structure) above 270 Lincoln will be offered first to the buyer of the main house by additional contract. Shown by appointment to fully qualified interested parties.
