This grand Italian neo-classic mansion was built for local winemaker Francesco Passalacqua and his wife, Rachele Biocelli Passalacqua in 1914. The home was designed by prominent Bay Area architect, Brainerd Jones, and was built by William J. Cuneo. The house typifies the neo-classic architectural style. The building is symmetrical with four two-story ionic columns framing the marble staircase, front door, and second-story balcony. There are matching porte-cocheres topped with balustrades on either side.
