San Francisco Landmarks
This Colonial Revival convalescent home, constructed of reinforced concrete and brick, was designed by master architects Martin J. Rist and Alfred I. Coffey. It is one of the few high style Colonial Revival institutional buildings in San Francisco that retains a high degree of physical integrity having undergone few alterations since its construction.
The building is in the Portola area, a residential neighborhood of two‐story single family homes built in the 1950s and 1960s. It is located directly across from the University Mound Reservoir.
