This historic Huntington Beach home must be seen to be believed. The stunning features of this century-old home have been lovingly maintained, offering a classic look & feel that simply can't be found in modern properties. Originally built in 1921, the home was moved to its current location from the Downtown area due to the influx of oil wells. The home was bought & occupied by Dr. Ralph Hawes (after whom the local elementary school is named) following the incorporation of Huntington Beach as a city. The classic features showcased throughout the home will make you feel as if you're stepping into a bygone era, including original hardwood floors, sturdy eucalyptus moldings & casings, hot water radiator heating, & even a basement. This home also offers one of the best locations in the city, near idyllic Lake Park & directly facing the beach, offering ocean breezes throughout the year. Thoughtfully designed with a classic feel to perfectly match the rest of the home, the renovated kitchen features honed Kirkstone flooring, granite counters, cherry wood cabinetry, & a distinctive 1992 cast iron AGA range designed to look like a 1919 stove. The private backyard is perfect for entertaining & relaxing, featuring a built-in BBQ & beautiful marble hardscaping finished in 2017. Lovingly maintained by its owners while respecting & showcasing its historic features, this Huntington Beach property is a must-see experience.
