As you drive through Bankers Hill along 4th Avenue, you can't miss the vibrant colors of the Britt Scripps Inn. The current owner's enthusiasm is evident in the detailed restoration of this Queen Anne-era mansion. During a 24-month long project, an exterior restoration was undertaken which included repair of the brickwork & stone lintels, painstaking refurbishment of the stained glass windows, rehabilitation of the woodwork and installation of period appropriate ridge crestings. The classically Victorian details like shingles, siding, brickwork, and woodwork were enlivened by an eleven-color, historically accurate paint palette with colors in the yellow, olive, and terracotta families.
