Truckee Victorian Charmer is up for sale

Truckee Victorian Charmer is up for sale

 

 

 Restored Victorian Home in Truckee Recently I got a tour of this Victorian Charmer which is now up for sale. Perched on a hill above historic downtown Truckee, The Richardson House is an elegant Victorian home built in the 1880s. Meticulously restored by the present owners, The Richardson House retains the elegant details of the Old World Charm with antique furnishings, Victorian floral wall paper, crystal light fixtures, etc...yet modern amenities have been added for easy and comfortable living.

 

This historic Victorian gem is imbued with inviting hues of deep gold and rich greens which are the backdrops for a remarkable collection of antique furnishings. The rooms have their original doors and wood moldings showcasing the 19th century woodwork.

 

 

One of many bedrooms in The Richardson House Each bedroom of the Richardson House retains its own distinct character with charming wallpaper and luxurious bedding. There is also an elegant parlor which serves as a gathering spot to unwind with a drink or a good book.  The rumpus room can be used as a media room with flat screen TV and a mini kitchen, bar sink and microwave located just outside.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Spacious Kitchen The roomy kitchen is modernly equipped with a six-burner commercial stove, and additional oven, microwave, refrigerator, two sinks and a lot of counter space. This is designed for the gourmet cook who likes to entertain.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Front porch with views of Sierra Mountain range and downtown Truckee

I especially love the front porch which is the perfect sitting place to view the gorgeous alpenglow of the Sierra Mountain range when the weather is nice.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The landscaped yard with a gazebo is an excellent place for the afternoon tea on a restful summer afternoon.

Outside yard and garden

 

Truly The Richardson House has it all: rich history, old world charm, modern amenities, gorgeous views, walking distance to shops and restaurants in historic downtown Truckee.

This home would make an exceptional home for a large family, a corporate retreat, or a bed and breakfast business.

Currently offered for sale at $1,500,000. For more information on this rare offering, please contact Ann
