OPEN HOUSE 5/23 12:30-4PM. Own a slice of Claremont History with this 1928 Spanish Colonial Revival Heritage home. The home is being sold by only the 3rd owner. It was originally built by Wally Caldwell for the Naftel Family; early settlers to Claremont and citrus ranchers. A registered Mills Act Property, this expansive lot of .65 acres includes a large above ground pool that was originally used as a water basin to water the groves. This house is on one of the largest lots in Claremont with a home made from cinder block and plaster, with a traditional low pitch, cross-gabled roof and red clay tiles; the character doesn’t disappoint. Enter through the original solid wood paneled door to walk into one of the most beautiful formal entries. Greeted by details that include a Terracotta floor, Catalina tiled archways, and an original metal light fixture. Your attention is first drawn to the large living room with its stunning dark wood beamed ceiling and plaster fireplace. The “awe” of this room, will have you wanting to sit down and take it all in. Some of the historic features throughout are the decorative iron sconces & curtain rods, casement windows, swinging double-sashed doors, built in wood features, and wood flooring & accents throughout. You can also enjoy the Bougainville lined courtyard by the original decorative tiled fountain, for your afternoon lemonade made with your homegrown lemons. The detached, flat roofed garage served as a temporary home, while the Naftel family was waiting for the construction of the main house to be completed. A year after, in 1929, the family put on an addition, serving as the back Master Bedroom and Bathroom. This bathroom was just updated. With all work being completed on the Mills Act work plan, this home will provide a large tax break as one of its many benefits. Some recent updates include; HVAC system, interior paint, kitchen flooring, tankless water heater, wrought iron fence around pool & decking, and new garage roof, to name a few. You do not want to miss this amazing historic home; an opportunity that doesn’t present itself often. This home won’t last!For more information, view this virtual tour.
