About the Property

Please Note: This property has been SOLD

This 'diamond in the rough' is now ready to be discovered! Not only is it architecturally striking, this home sits in an unparalleled location on lovely quiet street minutes from Bidwell Park and downtown Chico. Incredible .63 acre lot with a magnificent oak grove plus fruit and flowering trees planted by the owner over the many years she owned it. So secluded that you won't know it's even there.... until you get behind the wall of oleanders, through the covered front porch and into the stunning living space with a wall of windows and nothing but views of nature! Built in 1950 as the 'in law' unit for an adjacent home, it remains in its well-maintained original condition. The only real changes have been a new H/A unit and replaced roof. Main living space features a floor to ceiling brick fireplace in the light filled open beamed living area plus two bedrooms, one dual entry bath and laundry room. There's also a separate room accessed via the front porch and the breezeway that's connected to the central H/A as well as a detached 'art studio' also off the breezeway. The potential for this one-of-a-kind property is unlimited considering the neighborhood. Add on, perhaps build a larger main home... OR just polish the gem that exists and live in your own natural habitat.
