This estate of Adolph Sutro, land developer and a mayor of San Francisco once contained many Romanistic statues and a plant conservatory. In 1881, Adolf Sutro purchased 22 acres (89,000 m2) of undeveloped land at the edge of the city, which included a promontory overlooking the Cliff House and Seal Rocks with breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean, Mount Tamalpais, and the Golden Gate. Taking advantage of the views, Sutro turned this property into Sutro Heights, an elaborate public garden that was filled with decorated flower beds, statues, forests and vista points.
