Historical Queen Anne Victorian estate listed for $2.72 million

Ryan Bass, an agent affiliated with the Del Mar office of Coldwell Banker Realty, has listed an historical Queen Anne Victorian Estate for $2,720,000. 

Located at 700 S Juniper St. in Escondido, the four-bedroom, two-bathroom, one-partial-bathroom and approximately 3,300-square-foot home was built in 1896. 

“Known as the Beach House, this Queen Anne Victorian Estate has been fully restored using the highest quality period pieces,” said Bass. “Considered the Jewel of Escondido, this home has received many awards for its outstanding restoration work and is on the National Registry of Historic Places as well as on the Mills Act, saving the owner on property tax. Truly one of a kind, this estate has so much history and is a genuine period piece.”

Showcasing original refurbished hardwood floors, Bradbury & Bradbury wallpaper designed by Walter Crane and William Morris throughout, original lighting fixtures and handmade doors by a master craftsman with antique period piece doorknobs, the home encompasses a welcoming entry with an original Mahogany staircase, updated kitchen, newer plumbing, electrical, HVAC and paid solar. From an old historical home in Pasadena, the antique fireplace is surrounded by Victorian tile by Minton, which was founded in England in 1793. 

The firebox log holder belonged to the Ulysses S. Grant family’s home in downtown San Diego. All of the carvings on the glass doors were hand-carved and etched with a copper wheel. In addition, the master bathroom’s toilet is one of the few remaining John Douglas toilets, from which the nickname John evolved, and the six-foot bathtub is bronzed with nickeled legs with an oak rim and is from the estate of Doris Day dating around the 1890s. The grounds include a lush English-style garden with an imported Italian fountain, custom gazebo and an abundance of outdoor entertaining space.
