Agent Remarks

Your adventure in architectural artwork begins with this meticulously restored 1925 French Country Revival home. A wrought iron fence reveals maturing landscape. Flora draws eyes to a steep-pitched, multi-gabled roof. Built for the family of Orange's first newspaper editor, Justus Craemer, this 2,196 sqft, 4 bdrm, 1.5 bath home sits on a 6,900 sqft lot. With a small cellar and full attic, it maintains the integrity of the past and offers modern day amenities. A brick path leads to the original Oak Cotswold style front door. Stained and varnished wood throughout enhances the handmade stained glass windows of every room. Featured in Orange Plaza Review Magazine (Jan 2016) and Old Towne Orange Historic Home Tour (Nov 2015), this unique home offers Anaglypta wallpaper with a bronze faux finish, an inspiring dining room box beam ceiling, reproduction medieval carvings, and a Batchelder tiled fireplace. Enjoy a balance of original and restored light fixtures, an inviting claw foot tub, tankless water heater, and water softener. In a Japanese inspired backyard, a trex deck leads to a fantasy shed with leaded glass. A Koi pond and waterfall whispers calmness. Part of The Mills Act, this home is one of the 10 most recognizable homes in Historical Old Town Orange.
