This California Craftsman Executive Home is a magnificent, rare find. Built in 1914 on huge R2 lot near Nativity Church & Triangle Park, one of the most desirable parts of Historic Old Torrance. This 2 story home has fabulous bones & incredibly retains all its Historic charm and was recently featured in the Daily Breeze. The large front porch that tracks the entire width of the house is perfect for sitting on pleasant evenings. Original front door enters into a large living room with large fireplace. The office features the original built-in desk, a coat closet and is accessed through the original pocket doors. The formal dining room has a grand built-in hutch/buffet & wainscoting. A sunny breakfast room is connected to both the dining room & kitchen. The circular downstairs floor plan is great for entertaining with a separate area for the original staircase that wraps through the center of the house. Upstairs are two large bedrooms & another smaller 3rd bedroom. There are 2 separate two car garages in the rear off the alley. Two additional storage rooms are connected to the first garage. Huge 75′ x 140′ lot (10,500 sqft) has endless possibilities including another one story house (Check with City of Torrance Building Dept). Title & Records Search indicate that this house was once owned by Jarred Sidney Torrance. Truly one of Old Torrance’s best properties & a Once-in-a-Lifetime Opportunity to own a piece of local History. To appreciate this house and its craftsmanship you must see it yourself.
