Property Description

Rare opportunity to own this restored Victorian near downtown San Luis Obispo! The Crocker House is #38 on SLO City’s list of Historical Homes! Originally built and owned by the Crocker family in 1901, the current owners had the home fully restored to its original splendor in 2001/2002. Situated on a spacious corner lot, this home offers ~3487 sq. ft. with 5 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms and a detached 2 car garage. Superb curb appeal with meticulous landscaping and covered front porch. The formal entrance boasts a tile inlay floor, built-in bench seating and spectacular Victorian fretwork. The first floor living area features original lath and plaster walls, original tongue and groove clear-grain style Douglas fir wood flooring as well as original window and door frames which are faux painted to give the appearance of wood grain. The front living room offers a decorative cast iron, coal burning stove with antique Birdseye maple wood surround as well as an original light fixture which had both electric light bulbs and backup gas wick lights should the power fail back in 1901. Two other first floor rooms have these dual power source light fixtures! The main floor also offers a gourmet kitchen with prep sink area and a copper sink imported from France! More Victorian fretwork graces the casual dining area adjacent to the kitchen, family room and handy laundry room. The downstairs bathroom just off the front bedroom boasts the original sink with solid brass faucets and marble counter. The second downstairs bedroom features two closets and en-suite bathroom. Upstairs you’ll find a sun/sitting room with numerous windows, spacious landing, two guest rooms with spacious closets, a turret room, bathroom and primary bedroom with an attached bathroom as well. The backyard is completely fenced with patio area, pathways, grassy area plus numerous plants and flowers. The backyard also offers two separate basement/storage areas. The detached two car garage is accessed from the back yard and driveway with additional space for two more vehicles. Located within walking distance to restaurants, shopping and all of the events downtown SLO offers!
