As you come out you will be treated to an old fashion yet elegant fireplace nook adorned with Grueby type tiles, one has to see to truly appreciate. The office with its built in book cabinet is a great place for work to be done. The built in hutch in the formal dining room is perfect. The room will host most gatherings for dinner.

    1886 Queen Anne Victorian

    What a beautiful house…about as close to perfect as can be. I can’t help but wonder how it looked to people in 1913, probably a lot of divided opinions among the neighbors. The only thing I see that would absolutely change if it were mine is the big AC unit perched on the roof. I would relocate it so that you could not see it from the street; I also see what appears to be a wall AC on the 2nd floor. We installed central AC into an 1880s house with no prior duct work without sacrificing appearance inside or out, so it can be done…

      1915 Craftsman
      Orange, CA

      Mike-we installed AC in our 1915 Craftsman with no prior duct work as well- hid the unit in the basement and outside under a tree. Stole most of our closets ( which we all know are already small in an old house) But, since SoCal is now too hot to handle-it was a “I’m moving if we don’t get central air” decision. But still the insulation of this old girl doesn’t lend to efficient cooling. Right now I am watching 50 MPH winds whip the trees and CalFire on my phone app telling me where the newest fires are. Poor wonderful CA.
      Exeter is a great little Central Valley CA town, nestled at the base of Sequoia . Exeter has many wonderful historic homes.We looked at a beauty a few years ago-the air quality is a challenge in this valley. But a gem of a little community. Thank you everybody for this gem of a website and weekly share-I look forward to it.

      I agree with you about the AC unit. There is really no excuse to have it in this location with today’s technology, especially on such a historic structure as this in my opinion!

    This is so beautiful, it makes my heart weep! Two Inglewood nooks, a skylight, built-ins, pool, and the engraving over the fireplace… Joyous perfection.

    A beautiful Craftsman home, reminiscent of some of the Greene & Greene work of a few years earlier, especially the stonework. Also a few touches of the Prairie Style migrating out from the Midwest at the time. The San Joaquin Valley was growing fast at that time, spurred by the railroad, cattle ranching and citrus farms.

    1879 Italianate

    That second-floor banister configuration and skylight are stunning, and so unexpected in an otherwise angular Craftsman!

    Great stairwell and… how many houses can boast of *two* inglenooks?!?

    Wish I could step back in time to see the neighborhood 100 years ago, I imagine this was the only house here for quite a distance. It certainly is a lovely time capsule and a true bargain for California.
