Exquisite is one way to describe the Victorian-style, single-family residence on Placerita Canyon Road in Newhall. It’s breathtaking before you even reach the front door of this inviting property. On the outside, the beautiful charmer features numerous, decorative windows surrounded with cobblestone at ground level, and unique dormers near the concrete tile roof. Giving the home a castle feel, a quaint turret— embellished with gorgeous stained glass— is even more impressive at nighttime. From the home’s double-door entry, you arrive in the tiled foyer which can take you to all rooms on the first level. To the right, a carpeted formal living room features recessed lighting and an ornate fireplace perfect for an intimate gathering. To the left, beautiful French doors welcome guests and a stunning chandelier lights the grand dining room. Freshly refinished red oak hardwood floors extend into the kitchen and breakfast nook.
In the family room, Mahogany built-in bookshelves and wood finishes, and an elaborate brick fireplace surround encourage guests to linger. Beveled French doors lead to the patio. Finishing off the first floor are a powder room, laundry area, linen storage, and several closets.
The remodeled gourmet kitchen includes a Viking range, complete with arched brick surround and custom decorative tile backsplash, Black Galaxy granite countertops, a stunning coffered ceiling with recessed lighting, and beveled glass in the breakfast nook. A Mahogany pantry, island, cabinets, and drawers provide excellent kitchen storage. A dishwasher, garbage disposal, oven, microwave, and refrigerator are among the usual amenities.
Victorian homes almost always have featured at least two levels, often three. Upstairs you’ll find four luxurious bedrooms, each with a ceiling fan, and two bathrooms. The spacious master suite offers a walk-in closet, dual vanity, separate shower, and jetted bathtub.
Multiple bedrooms, double doors, ornate stairways, and detailed interior trim are just a few of the typical features of Victorian homes and floor plans. Throughout this stunning home, you’ll enjoy Mahogany baseboards, crown molding, arched windows and doorways, and Tiffany-style chandeliers. Central heat and air will keep you comfortable.
Magnificent grounds envelop the nearly one-acre, flat corner lot, which includes meticulously pristine landscaping, an attractive brick patio with a charming gazebo, a recently resurfaced lighted basketball court, a storage shed, a refreshing swimming pool and spa, and a 4-car garage that is partially converted into a bonus room. Above the garage, there is a guest suite, complete with living room, kitchen, master bedroom and full bath. You will not only have an amazing home to entertain guests, but also a convenient and comfortable place for them to spend the night. In fact, they may not want to leave the approximate 800-square-foot unit!
Victorian architecture refers to styles that emerged around 1830-1910 under the reign of England’s Queen Victoria. Typical of Victorian style, this home has an asymmetrical design, lending to its uniqueness. Ornate and decorative designs were the hallmark of Victorian homes, according to HomeAdvisor’s guide online. A mixture of materials and textures is also a strong Victorian theme. Walls with irregular shapes were common features of Victorian homes. These are all details that can be viewed in this Newhall home, built well beyond the actual Victoria era, in 1987.
