About the Property

Please Note: This property has been SOLD

This magnificent, historical Italianate home with Georgian influence could be yours. Built in 1865 when Lincoln was president, many prominent local residents owned or lived in this stately manor; including CA Gov. John Perkins and Mattie Lund, the first woman Tax Collector of Butte Co. who was elected before women had the right to vote and held the office for over 50 years. The public entered her office from a separate door on the front porch. Gracious beauty abounds with original architectural details as well as a recent kitchen remodel and the addition of the complete and covered outdoor kitchen and the beautiful salt-water pool with waterfall and large patio area for outdoor entertaining. The original basement coal room is now an amazing wine cellar that keeps the perfect temperature and can accommodate 1,800 bottles of wine. Additional amenities include: attached guest cottage; large laundry room; two parlors; original wood flooring; 10ft.+ high ceilings; crown molding; original-built in cabinets; original stained glass windows; leaded glass windows; gas fireplace in kitchen; gas fireplace in front parlor; pellet stove; stainless appliances in kitchen with double oven, 5 burner range; large pantry; master suite with office; master bath with spa tub, walk-in shower and walk-in closet; fenced backyard; detached garage; private well. It is said the Bidwell's were visitors....if only these walls could talk. Exceptional opportunity to own this amazing piece of history.
