Description for 11114 Orange Drive Whittier, CA 90606
RARE OPPORTUNITY to own a home with unique character & much history! Not on the market for decades, this gorgeous Spanish Ranch home called "Ranchito Del Fuerte" was built in 1924 by Harriett Strong on 220 acres she originally purchased in 1867 from Don Pio Pico, the last governor of California under Mexican rule. With Harriett's passing in 1926, the land gave way to the development of delightful surrounding homes in the 1940's. Today, this beautiful home remains in its majesty on an impressive nearly 1/2 acre lot with wonderfully mature trees in a natural setting which can be enjoyed from the beautiful backyard w/salt water pool, spa & built-in BBQ. The spacious interior (2869 sq ft) has the old world charm of an era gone by with lots of solid wood throughout in 4 Beds & 3 full baths. The parlor is large enough to accommodate a concert grand piano at one end & a large settee of furniture placed around the cozy fireplace at the other. This home has been lovingly maintained & original touches kept by the current owners with top-notch Lennox heating & A/C + kitchen upgrades added to make this a wonderful turnkey home! Large eat-in area/den off the kitchen is in addition to the formal dining room you would expect in a manor like this.
