This redwood structure was completed in 1868 by William Chapman Ralston, San Francisco financier, incorporating Count Cipriani's earlier villa. This enlarged mansion with its mirrored ballroom became the symbol of the extravagance of California's silver age. It anticipated features later incorporated into Ralston's Palace Hotel of San Francisco.
