Here awaits an extraordinary opportunity to steward the preservation of a Southern California landmark (*Property tax reduction of approximately 75%) The Oaks is a recently restored, elaborately ornamented Queen Anne-style mansion featuring Eastlake detailing in which long vertical windows, decorative brackets, spindle work and elaborate friezes display the Eastlake aesthetic. The asymmetrical facade, corner tower, multi-gabled roof, and corbelled chimneys are essential Queen Anne elements. Finished entirely in old growth redwood, this elegant home offers sixteen rooms, most with twelve foot ceilings, and five fireplaces. Double doors with frosted panes welcome visitors from the veranda into a magnificent entrance featuring a sitting area with fireplace as centerpiece. Just beyond, an exquisite staircase beckons, newel post surmounted by a lamp-lit sculpture enchantingly evoking the fairy queen in Shakespeare's Midsummer Night's Dream holding court in her moonlit glade. Downstairs amenities feature parlors whose ten-foot pocket doors can be rolled open to create an expansive area for entertaining. Another parlor/guest suite is in the rear and a large dining room adjacent. The kitchen with 48" Monogram stove, side by side refrigerator, microwave and dishwasher, pantry, two bathrooms, an office, and service porch are housed in a single-story wing. The immense upstairs landing features a sitting area, while also granting access to a master bedroom with sitting room/library, three bedrooms, a bathroom and a trunk room plumbed for a future bathroom.
