2172 Orange Avenue Listing Description

Why buy a new home poorly constructed to look like an old one when you can own an actual piece of local history? Long known as the “Pink House,” this classic Craftsman was built in 1923 on this prime triple lot before the little town of Harper became known as Costa Mesa. Over the years, this gem has been painstakingly updated to maintain original historic elements while adding every modern luxury possible. Unlike many imposters on the market, this home features original architectural elements popular during this vivid period of California growth, when farmers fled the Dust Bowl to seek work out west. The Pink House stood tall through it all, seeing its residents through World War II and Orange County’s post-war boom, a steadfast reminder to future generations that Costa Mesa is a town of growth and prosperity. This home offers the best of yesteryear alongside the brightest modern innovations, from fiberglass-clad and vinyl Milgard windows and doors that resemble the originals to contemporary energy-efficient (yet period-appropriate) light fixtures and cabinetry. There’s even a built-in entertainment sound system and smartphone-controlled waterfalls in the custom pool and spa. You can’t miss the charm of the original columns in the living room and the grand staircase to the second level. Although newer, the wide-plank Acacia wood flooring is another loving nod to the home’s heritage. A pleasant side patio with columns matching the original architecture was added, allowing access to the lush front yard from the main living areas and the added main floor bedroom suite. The separate second-floor living unit, accessible via the rear stairwell, has a kitchenette complete with a stove and refrigerator. Rent it out as one of the loveliest cottages in Orange County, or keep it to enjoy the B&B flavor for yourself. Even the expansive three-car garage was built to match the classic style with deep eaves and Craftsman elements. There is nothing “old” about this home, with a central vacuum, high-tech wiring, energy-efficient heating and cooling, whole-house water purification system, and more. Come see for yourself the stellar results of the owners’ integration of 21st century luxury and conveniences in this lovely Costa Mesa early 20th century home.
