Sutro Homes : LUSENET : San Francisco History : One Thread

Posted by Bob Holloway on May 12, 2001 at 04:27:41:

Adolph Sutro had several homes around the Bay Area. Besides his home at Sutro Heights Park (now demolished) in San Francisco, I believe he also had a home on Fillmore Street (@ Grove?) and one somewhere on top of today's Sutro Tower hill. I've also read that he had a Napa Valley country estate. Does anyone know the EXACT locations of the Fillmore, Sutro Tower or Napa Valley homes, or any other Sutro homes in the Bay Area? Are any of these homes still standing?

Bob, I remember seeing the Sutro home near MT Sutro. It was off of Clarendon, up the hill on or near Dellbrook. There was a gate and it was city owned. I haven't been up there in years and don't know if it still exits. He is a fasinating subject and deserves a new loo
