Historic, Walkable, Quiet… and not in Old Towne Orange

I still remember the first time I saw Huell Howser on California’s Gold (“that’s AMAZING!”) and he was visiting Old Town Tustin. I didn’t even know Tustin had an Old Town. But it does, and it’s growing. With a winery-owned wine and craft beer bar, the new Tustin Grille, and another new place called American Grub. For Irvine commuters it’s a bit closer, too. This particular home has the snazzy Craftsman color scheme as well as a big front porch with built-in banquette seating. Something tells me many evening will be spent on that front porch. The inside matches the outside — super cute. The only misstep seems to be the fluorescent (gross) lighting in an otherwise awesome kitchen, complete with vintage cabinet clasps.

Capture the lifestyle of the roaring 20s in this classic California bungalow located in one of Old Town Tustin’s most prime locations. Extraordinary details throughout including vintage doors, brass bathroom hardware, and original wood flooring contribute to the sense of antiquity only found in a historic property. Home chefs who love modern convenience but desire historic pedigree in the kitchen will love the enameled white cabinets, gleaming wood counters, and the striking vintage range which has been restored with modern gas internals and finished in vibrant turquoise and white. Relax on the front porch, glass of wine in hand, as neighbors stop by for in impromptu “front porch happy hour” or take a short walk to a local wine bar or one of many excellent restaurants for a great meal. Bountiful harvests from ten fruit tree varieties will provide delicious treats, while the weekly Organic Farmer’s Market is just a short walk away for stocking up on whatever can’t be grown at home. Spend an evening with friends gathered around the outdoor fireplace, exchanging stories over a round of after dinner drinks or enjoy a casual weekend breakfast in the backyard under the shade of mature trees. Potential for significant property tax savings through the Mill’s Act.
