This exquisite home built in the late 1800s is an excellent example of the New England Colonial Revival-style of architecture in Southern California. Its character defining features borrowed from Colonial New England include a steep gable roof, symmetrical window placement, a prominent porch with classical columns across the front facade, narrow clapboard wood siding, and double hung windows.

Other Colonial features include a distinctive curved wall on the south elevation, a decorative multi-pane window in the entry hall, coffered ceiling in the dining room, and robust molded window and door trim throughout the interior. The current owners, an architect and engineer by trade have meticulously restored this light filled home over the years.

The restoration has included: a full kitchen remodel, upstairs and downstairs bathrooms, foundation retrofit and leveling of house, electrical, new recessed LED, copper plumbing, central air and heat, tankless water heater, new gas lines, new roof, new paint inside and out, refinished original old growth Western Fir floors, and landscaping.

In addition, there is a 400 sqft studio/office with water and waste line hookups that could possibly be converted to an ADU. R2 zoning with a lot exceeding 10,000 sqft allows for possible second unit in addition to the ADU. Buyer to check with county for verification.
