    Oh my goodness, what a pretty house! There is no way the owner is making money for all the love, sweat and tears he must have put into this, not to mentions hours and physical labour!

    aww…she’s so adorable. Bethany is so right about the pictures. It looks like it has a basement too.? I wonder why they left the cement stairs and pipe handrails in the front entryway. That aside, I bet they had fun painting her. Good job.

    This one has been for sale for a long time. Or maybe it was bought and being resold? I fell in love with this one, but not with the area it’s in. It gets pretty cold there in the winter, too!

    Wonderful place, but was the realtor in full sprint taking the pictures?

    LOVE the exterior paint color and the meandering stone paths & garden beds on the property. The interior is very nice but I think I would have trouble working with that kitchen stove that is adorable but not functional enough for me. The woodwork within (bead board wainscot, chair rails, door trims with rosettes, Oak mantle surround over used brick) is exactly what we have inside our Modern update of Colonial style home built in 1990 in the foothills of N. CA. I can’t imagine living in a home without the traditional charms of Antique! Kudos to the sellers for the lovely job they have done with this property.

    I love it! So pretty, especially the exterior colors. And the stenciling is really cool. I agree the photos could be better.

    The interior of this house makes my heart rejoice. Utterly beautiful

    When I lived in rural Sonoma Co. in 2006-2007, ornate Victorian farmhouses similar to this example dotted the rural landscape. In other parts of the country such farmhouses often lack an abundance of exterior ornamentation but California seems to have loved ornamental Victorian houses more so than anywhere else. I recall a country road leading from my rural locale to Sebastopol and on the way there were a half dozen or so formal Victorian farmhouses including one towered Queen Anne that prominently stood out from the surrounding landscape. The area had once been heavily forested by Coastal Redwoods but by the 1880’s the land had been clear cut and then resold as farmland. (mostly for dairy and apple orchards) It appears that local carpenters came out and built fashionable farmhouses for local landowners at least until the early 1900’s. With the nice interior millwork and details like pocket doors and built in cabinets as well as a full bathroom, this house was just as formal as its urban counterparts. Seems reasonably priced for the well known pricey California housing market. For a few years after the 2008 Great Recession true old house bargains could be found around California especially in more remote communities, but that supply has largely been depleted. Real estate markets are always cyclical and are closely aligned with economic conditions but there are some indications that the West Coast market may have peaked price-wise. A few select areas like the Bay area and around Los Angeles continue to rise but at a slower pace. After all, how large is the market for multi-million dollar houses? Only time will tell where the market is going longer term.

    Where is this beautiful home near? County? Large City?

    • MaryS says: 14 comments

      The large city is Klamath Falls, Oregon 100 miles away. Redding California is 144 miles, and Reno Nevada is about 170 miles. Alturas is the county seat for Modoc County, high desert, North East corner of Northern California.
