About This 1927 Historic House In Santa Ana California
Extraordinary 1927 Spanish-style home with Southwest influences in historic Floral Park. Architectural details surround you, from archways and arcades, as well as original hardwood floors and pavers. This home is rich with accents of leaded and stained glass mixed in with beautiful arched windows. The stunningly landscaped, drought-tolerant yard perfectly complements the Southwestern Spanish motif, giving the feeling of relaxing at a spa resort.
Down a path, past a bubbling fountain, and through an arch to the welcoming porch, you enter through a dramatic front door. The living room is spacious and has hardwood floors, large windows with views of the garden, beamed ceiling, and a wood burning stove in the Batchelder-style tile fireplace. The dining room is open with views of the garden, beamed ceiling, arched windows, vintage pavers, and a wall of built-in storage. The amazing kitchen has black stone countertops with ample space, stainless steel appliances, black-and-white checkered flooring, an eat-in counter, vintage-style tiled backsplash, and a wonderful breakfast nook with a French door looking out to the porch and front landscaping.
The family room features pavers, built-in bookshelves, a skylight, a brick wall, and a view out to the patio and pool through an arched window. The downstairs has a spacious primary bedroom with beamed ceiling and large brick fireplace, along with 2 guest bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. Stairs to the upper level are covered with pavers and tiles, and lead to a large office with a balcony overlooking the pool, as well as another expansive bedroom with a view of the neighborhood.
A partially covered patio features a rustic brick wall and a charming style all its own. The sparkling pool and spa are inviting and set at an angle to the rest to the yard, while the side yard has archways running the length of the house, all together creating the atmosphere of a private oasis. A rooftop 6KwH owned solar array made last year’s SCE bill a meager $12.16 for the year! A 220V electric car outlet can be included as well.
Tucked on a winding street of fabulous vintage and historic houses, this home enjoys the friendly ambiance of Floral Park, with its neighborhood events and yearly home tour. An award-winning K-8 school with full-time GATE, music, and drama programs is nearby, along with the OC School of the Arts. Very centrally located, and close to parks, shopping, restaurants, and Starbucks, along with the 5, 22, and 57 freeways.
