Sometimes you run into a home that really has a little bit of everything .Right location in Anaheim Colony. Right price. Right size. Two baths. Great paint scheme. A home like this is hard to fault and at below $500k, we can actually call it an affordable home. It’s even more affordable that the price would suggest due to the Mills Act contract on the property, which puts the property taxes at about $2100/yr. Normally, a property like this would have taxes that were approximately $5600/yr — that’s a savings of $200/mo.
There’s always a careful balance between preservation and updating for a more modern lifestyle. In the 1990s owners added a master suite. The addition is well-done and integrates well on the back side of the house. For many families, the #1 wish list item we hear about is having a 2nd bath and this home does. The French doors leading outside the master bedroom have the same mullion pattern as the original windows. That, along with a porch on the back, really ties everything together.
Inside, the original hardwood floors have be refinished and while this home is a bit “simpler” in detailing that many, it has a very clean, but still charming vibe. The kitchen isn’t my favorite, but I’ve certainly seen much much much worse. The glass display-cabinet upper cabinets (including some that dip down to the counter) really up the vintage ante. I think with some better colors, accessories, and maybe lighting the kitchen could go from “okay” to pretty cool.
