Description

The Van Vechten Sweet House, was built by Sarah Sweet and her husband in 1904. Provenance exudes throughout this remarkable property with the original two car garage, carriage house and the authentic Hitching Post intact. Van Sweet was a horse dentist and built the carriage house for his trade and the Hitching Post has its own APN and is listed on the National Historic Registry (note photo). Few homes in Old Towne Orange remain in impeccable original condition and no doubt the retrofitting thru out the basement contributed to its longevity. Interior by Higgins Design with Its Victorian Farmhouse architecture was a century ahead of its time with all the rage of Farmhouse today. Refinished hardwood floors add to the charm and authenticity of the property. The kitchen was remodeled with solid wood cabinets, ceramic tile, Jenn-air appliances and the laundry porch sheds morning light with large windows looking out over the grounds. The original 2 car garage has been restored into a wine venue for entertaining and the original carriage house is ideal for storage, a kids play house, and with some remodeling could be a private office. The home has two bedrooms upstairs all freshly updated with carpet and paint in Benjamin Moore 2022 Paint color of the year...Pale Green. And in the vintage bath the original oversized sink and claw tub remain with a coastal vibe of pale aqua walls and white wainscoting, white penny tile floor. Just stunning! The large third bedroom downstairs has a closet and is steps from main floor 1/2 bath, yet has been preferred to use as a spacious family room. True elegance in the Living and family rooms oozes with faux French painted walls by local artist, Kerri Sabine-Wolf. The expansive size of the front porch is rare and is a favorite entertaining venue with friends and family overlooking the colorful grounds planted by Armstrong Nursery. Note, unlike many listings and comps that have sold in OTO lack privacy while The Van Sweet House has revered privacy and its own driveway. The MILLS ACT TAXES on this home are $2800 a year. Without the Mills Act the taxes would be over $14,000 a year.
