SFGATE, Aug 2014
Few know the background of 60 King Ave. in Piedmont better than Holly Hine Suich, whose family has owned the home for more than six decades.
A de facto historian of the property, Hine Suich rattles off anecdotes about the various weddings, galas and fundraisers hosted at the home with a machine gun cadence. The aesthetics of the 6,266-square-foot home designed by William Knowles in 1913 are not lost on her, either.
“Knowles was trying to get symmetry in the neighborhood when he built this,” she said. “And the stairs leading to the entrance make it look like the New York Public Library.”
