This elegant and prized nostalgic South Redlands historic 1896 Victorian home is hitting the market for the first time in over 50 years! Prominently oriented on a large 3/4-acre lot, the estate is made up of a main house which includes third story and basement, cabana & carriage house - with a refreshing pool, right in the center of it all. Located at the corner of Pacific and Cedar, this home is surrounded by mature trees and similar prestigious yet historic properties such as The Walter Nordoff home, built in 1899, and the neighboring home of the President of the University of Redlands. Some slight changes have been made over the years, but the overall antique quality and originality has remained much unchanged. This home is a work of art and has been loved, adored and taken care of. Verdant green grass and cheerful flowers envelop this gem with bright and radiant colors. Wraparound veranda brings you to the entry. Walk into the foyer and formal living room complete with a nice and cozy fireplace. High ceilings with shadow rail, thick baseboards and pocket doors are additional features to give the home more detail and design. The formal dining room is hexagonal in shape and accented with a fireplace, leading you to an eye-catching Retrograde kitchen. A half bath, office, den and covered porch complete the first level. Extra wide wooden staircase takes you upstairs to your bedrooms and bathrooms. The very top floor is complete with a stately bedroom and a game room to enjoy some quality time with company or to wind down after a long day. The basement leaves a lot to the imagination as there is a BBQ, underground bar with convenient access to upper patio and multi-purpose room which would make a fantastic private & separate guest suite. There are so many wonderful gathering spots outside as well as intricate rock lined pathways leading to built-in wood burning fireplace and a grove of many trees including citrus. There is a sparkling pool which has brand new resurfacing and equipment. The cabana has a delightful view of the peaceful pool and grounds that seem to go on forever. The carriage house would make a fantastic guest quarters. Recent improvements include seismic retrofitting with complete rebuilding of the foundation, interior and exterior painting, extensive landscaping, irrigation, & new wrought iron gate/fencing on the East side of the house. What an outstanding opportunity to own a piece of Redlands history.
