SOLD! | CHARMING “Storybook Home” | 756 E. 9th Street. | Chico, CA | $440,000
CHARMING “Storybook Home” built by Orville Tracy in 1927 for Dr. and Mrs. J.G. Hepplewhite. The historic European-inspired Eastwood Park neighborhood was Chico’s first true subdivision. (The marketing at that time stated “No two homes are alike!”) The main home has two roomy bedrooms, 1 bath, and has been lovingly restored to preserve the original feel of this special, romantic era. Original hardwood floors (pine in kitchen), “honeycomb” tiled flooring in bathroom, as well as many original kitchen and bath fixtures. The spacious, high-ceilinged living room features a dramatic fireplace and opens to the dining area. The kitchen and adjacent nook are truly adorable, with a period flair. Kitchen cabinetry and drawers were rebuilt in 2005 and an integrated-style Fisher and Paykel 2/3 size dishwasher was added. Windows have been upgraded to double (and many triple) paned, and there are ceiling fans and a whole house fan for energy savings, as well as central heat & air. So many delightful nooks, crannies and built-in features! Partial basement offers extra storage space. A “courtyard-style” back yard has a covered patio area and an abundance of fruit and ornamental trees (Meyer lemon, navel and blood orange, kumquat, fig, pecan, Japanese magnolia, and Japanese maple). The back unit (formerly a detached garage, with addition built in 1985) features a kitchen, bath (with sink, toilet, tub/shower), washer/dryer, studio, loft, and separate workshop room. So many possibilities!
