While Victorian homes are relatively common (and highly desirable) in the Bay Area, few pack as much historic punch as Pacific Grove’s Trimmer Hill. The home’s Queen Anne exterior is embellished with the ornate architectural flourishes the style is known for including carved wood details and delicate stained glass.
The six-bedroom home wears its National Register of Historic Places badge proudly. It was the original home of Dr. Trimmer and also of Knut Hoveden whose Hoveden Cannery helped create the longest running sardine industry in Cannery Row (it was the last to close in the early 1970s). This estate is the only privately owned residence in the Monterey Peninsula on National Register.
With a home like this one has an obligation to preserve and restore it in alignment with the history and craftsmanship of the original design. After all, this home has had just eight owners since 1892.
Some of the most classic styles prove their timeless worth and adaptability. Hardwood floors and carved wooden details are still prized by buyers today. This home has a separate apartment and has multiple master suites. It has been updated with an integrated intercom, security system and high-end energy efficient appliances.
This property is listed for $2.575 million by Intero Real Estate and is showcased on Luxury Portfolio.
