Looking Inside Spreckels Mansion

Look inside the newly renovated multi-million dollar home

Realtors for the Spreckels mansion, a landmark in one of San Diego's most exclusive neighborhoods, gave local media a look inside the house for the first time since two people mysteriously died two years ago.

An investment group is selling the house formerly owned by pharmaceutical company executive Jonah Shacknai. Shacknai sold the 12,750 sq. ft. mansion last year to an investment group.

In July 2011, Shacknai’s son Max fell down the stairs at the Spreckels mansion and died as a result of an injured spinal cord. Two days after the fall, Shacknai’s girlfriend Rebecca Zahau was found hanging nude by a rope around her neck from the second-story balcony above the home's courtyard. The death was later ruled a suicide by officials.

The ocean front home at 1043 Ocean Blvd. is listed at $16.9 million. It recently underwent a major renovation and the interior reveals a beautiful, modern home.

Real estate agent Scott Aurich said last year that Shacknai originally purchased the historic mansion for $12.75 million.
