Mike Mollica, a 45-year old bio-tech professional based out of San Diego has purchased the historic property for close to the asking price of $999,000. Mollica, who has former ties to the Peninsula as one of the first 500 students to ever attend CSU Monterey Bay, plans to live in the upstairs portion of the mansion and rent the downstairs out for special private affairs.

In November 2016 the mansion’s latest owner Jill Gifford purchased the property for $1.1 million. Then in December of 2017, Gifford, 47, along with her companion Benjamin Childs were found shot to death inside her Mesa, Arizona home. Gifford’s ex-husband, Bruce Gifford, was also found dead from a gunshot wound. Local news at the time reported it was being investigated as a murder-suicide.
