Ever dream of being a part of history- or even living within its walls? This 136 yr old home, was saved & transferred to Humbodlt Ave by Chico natives in hopes of preserving a part of Chico's history. First built in 1883, is the ONLY remaining Gothic revival style cottage in Chico. After years of working through red tape this historic home was cut in half & driven to its current location. It was reconstructed with the required historic integrity that will allow it to remain on the city's historic resource inventory. Architects & contractors were tasked with keeping as close to the original state as possible, with old photographs as there guide. They worked to match older elements of the home. The windows & French doors are all original wood paned, replaced with single pane wavy safety glass to keep with the old fashioned feel. The entire home was insulated, re-wired, & includes all of the modern comforts, such as vinyl plank flooring throughout the main living area, ceiling fans, cozy carpeted bedrooms & stainless steel appliances in the kitchen. It's a moment of awe when you walk up the custom cement steps to the bead-board covered Douglas Fir front porch. Inside are soaring ceilings with 7.5 in classic white baseboards & pitcher rail along the walls. Large corner lot, whose property line goes into the bordering creek. This isn’t just a chance to buy a new home, it's an opportunity to create new memories in a home that has literally been loved for over 100 years.
