  240 N Philadelphia Street Anaheim, CA 92805

Active (12 Days)


Nestled in the heart of Downtown Anaheim, just a few blocks from Center Street Promenade and the Packing District, 240 N Philadelphia Street offers a rare opportunity to own a piece of history. Located on a tranquil cul-de-sac across from the picturesque George Washington Park, this Craftsman home has a unique story—it was moved to its current location in 1990. This means you get a historic home with the benefits of a newer foundation, electrical, and plumbing systems. The relocation allowed for the perfect addition of a primary bedroom with a full bath, an expanded kitchen, a large breakfast room, and an interior laundry area. The home's charm is evident from the moment you arrive, with a large, deep front porch that runs the width of the house, offering a unique and tranquil additional living space. Inside, the living room and formal dining room are combined into a spacious great room, featuring a stunning Claycraft tile fireplace flanked by custom-built in bookcases. The kitchen is a cook's dream, boasting expansive counter space, numerous cabinets, a beautiful antique stove, and a custom marmoleum floor. The adjacent breakfast room is the perfect gathering spot. The house features three perfectly sized bedrooms and two bathrooms. The center bath, a Jack and Jill, is located between the bedrooms and includes a clawfoot tub, ample storage, and a beautiful custom stained glass window. The primary bedroom offers French doors leading to the back covered porch, and is adjacent to the second full bath with beautiful period touches.

An indoor laundry room provides plenty of storage and direct access to the back porch, where you can enjoy a blissful view of the yard complete with a paved driveway and mature fruit trees. The two-car garage, built new when the house was moved, offers ample space for vehicles. The home also features central air and heat for year-round comfort.

One of the most significant benefits of this property is the Mills Act tax credit. Your annual property tax payments will be approximately $3,235, a significant reduction compared to the typical 1.13% of the sales price. Additionally, you will not receive a supplemental tax bill unlike traditional sales. The only requirement is to maintain the exterior visible from the street in its original condition. You can change the color, landscaping (excluding artificial grass), and the interior as long as the structure remains unchanged from the street view.
