Property Details


Built in 1885, The French House is one of the finest Queen Anne cottages and oldest surviving houses in OC. This is a once in a generation opportunity to own a property that’s Mills Act qualified and may be eligible for the National Registry of Historic Properties. Let’s face it, there aren’t many people in OC that can say they own such a special work of art. She used to be the belle of the ball, decked out in all her glory. Now she’s a little old, rough around the edges, and she needs to get some work done. But that’s ok because you don’t just own a home like this. You love it, cherish it, and you care for it like family. The most recent owners/caretakers of this treasure loved it like that. But the home has fallen on some hard times and needs a new owner/caretaker who can roll up their sleeves, dust off the millwork, and make this beauty shine like the star she once was. When the project’s done, you’ll be the proud owner of a spectacular piece of history that rivals all the rest. There’ll be nothing better than stirring up a classic cocktail before relaxing on the wrap-around front porch where you can just sit back and watch the world go by. When dinner time arrives, go for a short stroll under a canopy of colorful jacaranda trees and head to one of Old Town Tustin’s many restaurants. Features of the home include 10 ft ceilings, original window moldings/casings, fancy cut triangular and fish-scale gable end shingles, original redwood flooring and built-in buffet, a stunning glazed tilework fireplace and a secret pocket door that retracts vertically into the stairwell to reveal access to the upstairs master suite. And to top it off, the large lot allows for the future addition of an ADU/guest house.
