Do you long for a historic home that brings a special character, panache and bespoke quality to your life? A home with storied past, that’s an even better storyteller than you are? If so, we’ve got great news for you! A historic masterpiece just hit the market in Historic French Park. This Victorian 19th-century mansion was built in…(wait for it)… 1887! Yes, 1887. And its recent renovation is no joke. Its owner recently went to painstaking lengths in order to restore this magnificent gem to its original glory, while also integrating essential updates for modern living.
Originally, this was the home of Mr. Miles Crookshank, a prominent banker and the president of Santa Ana’s First National Bank in 1889. His large Victorian house at 802 North French was the most fashionable part of town during his time. It was Orange County’s own version of Nob Hill.
Make no mistake: this head-turning home makes an equally bewitching impression inside, as it does outside. What’s more? it’s on the Historic Register and it Mills Act approved. By now, I’m sure you read the Mills Act blog we wrote. Assuming you did, you know that purchase of this beauty translates to a HUGE tax savings. What’s not to love?
