Old Towne Charm, Normal Town Price

We LOVE Old Towne Orange, but time for some brutal honesty, it’s not always the most value for your money. And by not always the most value, I mean it’s really really expensive. Great if you can afford it, but what if you can’t? Well, that’s where this house comes in. It’s in Old Town Tustin, which is still historic, charming, and totally walkable. But there’s actually parking and it’s much less crowded (and it’s a couple of a degrees cooler in the summer, too). And you have this house, specifically. It’s remodeled with a kitchen that works, and the layout is open. And it has enough bathrooms. The hardest thing when working with clients is helping them figure out the compromises. And this home, while our own listing, is not perfect (is any house?) — it’s a unique compromise. Sure, there are definitely some old-house things…like original but creaky wood floors (this is what character sounds like). But to be able to get a historic home with the bedrooms, square footage, and bathrooms that make 21st century living comfortable is quite the feat. And it’s all at a price that fits in a lot more budgets than a similar home one city farther inland.

EVERY WOMAN KNOWS ABOUT THE THREE C’s OF DIAMONDS, but do you know about the three C’s of homes? CHARM, CONVENIENCE, and COST. And usually you get to pick two out the three. [Sad trombone]. But NOT TODAY. Today you get to pick all three. Today you fly first class for the price of coach. Historic homes like this 1924 Mediterranean are charming with things like original hardwood floors, brick fireplaces, and clay tile roofs, and a big lot. But here you also have all things you’d expect in something newer — like an open layout and plenty of bathrooms. It’s been remodeled and reimagined into a home that works for a variety of different living situations. Two bedrooms and baths are on the main level — great for guests and extended family alike. Of course, now you’re in love (we know you’ve been scrolling through the pictures) and it’s time to talk brass tacks. We’ll just come right out and say it — if this home were in Old Towne Orange it would be over $1M. But it’s not, it’s on a beautiful tree-lined, more coastal, less-crowded, WALKABLE street in Old Town Tustin. Imagine coming home and strolling to drinks, dinner, and shopping — your future life. Your next home can’t wait to meet you.
