$2,229,000 - 1881 Rainbow Drive, North Tustin

SQ. Feet

Motivated seller! Rarely does a piece of history come on the market. And yet, here it is. Built in 1908, this historical home was, according to the family who have lived there for three generations, the original "Browning Bunkhouse," where the cowboys who worked the Browning Ranch lived. Updated and added-onto multiple times over the years, the current home was taken down to the studs in 2007 and lovingly rebuilt, while designer John Garcia, ASID, helped retain the historical nature. The gated manor sits on 1.197 acres, & features 4 beds, 4 baths, game room with custom built bar, home theater, office, breakfast room overlooking the pool, spectacular Chef's kitchen with built-in Dacor fridge, Viking stove & custom cabinets. The remodel included plumbing, electrical, cat5e wiring, Crestron and Lutron home automation system (that can be run from your smartphone) & new HVAC (2 units zoned for 6 areas). Baths feature marble, travertine and custom cabinetry with jetted tubs and wainscotting. The entertainer's yard features recently remodeled black-bottom pebble pool, separate deck and play area, putting green & two detached garages (one 3-car & one two-car) and storage shed. Lot is 2 separate parcels & has split potential. Don't miss your chance to own a piece of history!
