Take A Tour Of Luxurious $900K Victorian That Features Olive Orchard

If ornate Queen Anne-style Victorian homes have always been one of your favorite styles, you won't want to miss the chance to check out a California property that recently went on the market. The Victorian-style home in Oroville, California, was built in 1890 and has a classic Queen Anne exterior that offers some stunning curb appeal — although the general color palette is a bit tamer than some of the other Queen Anne homes you may know and love, such as the famous Painted Ladies in San Francisco, according to Curbed.

The home itself is a country estate, with the property located on a 16.42 acre lot, so the eventual owner will be surrounded by natural splendor in the private spot. Though the home itself is well over 100 years old, the Realtor.com listing specifies that fairly extensive renovations were completed in the 1970s, so the house is the perfect blend of Victorian decor details and embellishments paired with some modernized amenities and conveniences.

The home features 3,688 square feet of living space, which includes four bedrooms and three and a half bathrooms. It went on the market just under two weeks ago for an asking price of $895,000 — read on to learn more about the chic, moody Victorian in sunny California.

Major curb appeal — and scenic grounds

The estate is on some stunning land, and the Realtor.com listing flags that the abundance of flowering shrubs and trees paired with walkways and a perfectly landscaped lawn gives the estate a park-like setting. The home has a gorgeous pale yellow exterior with ornate white trim to incorporate that traditional Queen Anne look, albeit in a less vibrant hue. 

There are also a variety of uniquely-shaped windows that add some visual interest, as well as brick detailing along the staircase leading up to the front door. One of the most eye-catching exterior features, however, is the double column wrap-around porch that adds some serious square footage, and would be the perfect spot for a party to spill out onto during the warm California weather. There's also vintage-inspired lighting along the porch, for when the sun dips down but you're not quite ready to come inside.

The property also contains a swimming pool for splashing in the California sunshine, a fountain, a hot tub, a gazebo, and a koi pond, so you can really enjoy the splendor of nature while wandering along the grounds. There's also a historic barn, perfect for individuals who want to take advantage of the bucolic paradise. Finally, environmentalists will love that the property is powered by a solar array, and foodies won't be able to resist the fruit orchard and grove of over 100 olive trees — there truly is something for everyone at this gorgeous California estate.

Entertaining in style

The minute guests enter through the ornate front doors of this Victorian property, they're greeted with a gorgeous foyer with original wood flooring and ornate millwork around the room. The foyer also features a cozy nook with built-in bookshelves, ideal for catching up on your latest reads, as well as eye-catching wallpaper that makes a serious style statement. The foyer's main feature is a breathtaking wood staircase that leads to the second floor, as the Realtor.com photos highlight.

In addition to the foyer, the home has a stunning great room with coffered ceilings that add some visual interest, a brick fireplace that accentuates the home's historic details, as well as unique curved windows, and built-in padded seating that creates the perfect spot to relax, sip tea, read, or just enjoy the views of the lush grounds. Currently, the room features moody dark red paint and darker wood, but you could certainly change up the feel with a different palette or different furnishings.

A formal dining room nearby, complete with another fireplace, is the perfect spot for hosting dinner parties, and a set of stained glass doors lead to the kitchen, which has been revamped to make it a bright, airy space with white cabinetry and butcher block countertops. For more casual gatherings, the kitchen is also open to a breakfast room, which features a few windows that make the room a sunny spot to start the day.

A chic and cozy retreat

The second level of the property is where the bedrooms are located, in addition to a full bathroom (although, as per Realtor.com, there's another full bathroom complete with clawfoot bathtub downstairs, so the second story can remain private). Deep red paint, floral wallpaper, and rich wood doors and trim highlight the Victorian aesthetic in the upper level's halls, although the hardwood flooring has been swapped with a neutral white carpet. Each bedroom features tall ceilings, custom wallpaper, and large windows, including bay windows that create a perfect spot to enjoy the sunshine.

The master bedroom, however, is a true showstopper, with a cozy seating area nestled in front of a set of bay windows, as well as a marble wood-burning fireplace that adds a chic and cozy vibe to the master suite. The master suite has been done in a very neutral color palette, providing a blank slate for any future homeowners to put their own personal twist on.

The renovated upstairs bathroom effortlessly blends modern touches with a vintage influence, creating a serene space. White wainscoting covers the lower portion of the wall while the rest has been painted a soft sage green. The marble-topped vanity looks like a piece of antique furniture, and small details such as metallic gilded frames around a few pictures and the mirror finish off the space. And, of course, there's an incredible clawfoot tub nestled in beneath a small window, the perfect addition to any vintage-inspired bathroom.
