The Melrose House was built in 1910 as the dream home of Richard & Mary Melrose. Melrose was a prominent figure to his community, state, and country. Melrose was appointed postmaster by President Arthur, received praise from President Roosevelt, and Melrose Street in Anaheim and LA commemorate his name. The elegant Melrose House has undergone extensive restoration including foundation replacement, re-plumb, re-wire, and re-duct. All original features have been thoughtfully preserved. Upon entry, two stunning Batchelder fireplaces are a focal point amid rich detail of original paneling. The dining room features Venetian crystal chandelier and original leaded glass buffet. The massive gourmet Victorian kitchen highlights custom antique cabinets, 48” imported Italian range, 8’ French drapery island, handcrafted Zellige backsplash, and brass/crystal hardware. The spacious downstairs bedroom is perfect for multigen living. The grand main staircase and secondary staircase both lead to 3 upstairs bedrooms. An expansive master suite features tons of natural light with serene views. A walk-through dual closet leads to the luxurious master bathroom complete with classic marble, 10’ double shower, custom antique vanity, and french doors. The massive private back yard boasts a large covered patio, all new fencing, veggie garden, and a 1,500sqft orchard with 5 fruit trees. Rich in history, The Melrose House is on the National Register of Historic Places & pending Mills-Act final approval.
