Your new home awaits at this Historic 1913 Classic Craftsman, Single Story house in the heart of Historic Old Towne Orange! The large front porch boasts welcoming curb appeal true to the preserved design. Walk just one block to Chapman College and 3 blocks to dining and shopping at the Orange circle. As you enter the home, take note of the hardwood floors throughout the living and dining area that lead you to the remodeled kitchen. Remodeled about 5 years ago, the kitchen is updated with granite countertops, tile backsplash, abundant Shaker style white cabinetry, Pendant lighting, a 6 burner gas stove, range hood, and farm sink. The living room, with picturesque windows, keep it fresh and bright all day. In the evenings, you’ll love cozying up to the warm fireplace. The main bathroom was remodeled about 5 years ago with shower stall, bathtub, vanity and lighting. Two bedrooms are ample in size. The third bedroom does not have a closet, but the adjoining service porch can be retrofitted to include one. Additionally, the service porch previously had a shower installed (currently removed), so it could be added again. There are professional plans to convert the 3rd bedroom into a 1bd 1bth apartment with a separate entrance, perfect for either a rental opportunity or a family member to stay. The laundry porch sheds morning light with large windows looking out over the grounds. All the craftsman style baseboards and window casement remains. The detached "carriage house" style garage adds to the antique charm of the property and is ideal for storage, a kids play house, and with some remodeling could be a private office. The entertainer’s backyard (also recently renovated) is a delight with several fruit trees, a conversation pit, designated dining area and private hot tub. . **Additional upgrades within the last 5-7 years include: Electrical, Plumbing, Reshoring of the foundation, Refinished floors; HVAC system (A/C & Heating!) as well as an electric station for your EV.** This home has become an iconic staple in town known for its annual decoration display at Halloween. Between its location, charm, and various functionality, this home has it all!
