Country Oasis in the Bay Area

40846 High St, Fremont, CA 94538, USA
$1,368,800

Description

Welcome to one of Fremont’s few remaining homes from the mid-1800’s. The Hiram Davis House was built almost entirely of redwood and to this day retains most of the original woodwork including windows, doors, wainscoting, walls and floors. Updates to the house have been made with respect for the home’s historic nature and with an emphasis on restoration and preservation. The original redwood floors as well as walls and ceilings have been uncovered in several of the rooms. The antique cabinets incorporated into the library and master bathroom were chosen to seamlessly match the dining room china cabinet that was added to the house sometime in the early 1930’s.

This one-of-a-kind property is a country oasis within easy access to everything the Bay Area has to offer. Start your day in the sun-filled kitchen, listening to chickens clucking as they lay fresh eggs. Enjoy home-grown fruit year-round. Fresh lemons every day of the year. Apricots in June. Plums in July. Quince and grapes in September. Pomegranates in October. Mandarin oranges and navel oranges in winter. Four raised beds with irrigation are perfect for growing vegetables. The herb garden just outside the kitchen door means you can pick what you need to cook dinner without even needing to put shoes on!

 

Colder months are perfect for enjoying warm evenings by the fire. A new gas fireplace insert installed in 2019 warms the house easily at the push of a button. Relax with a good book in the cast iron clawfoot tub, dim the chandelier and you have a spa-like retreat right at home. During warmer months, start your day with fresh air in the outdoor redwood shower; or, use it to rinse off after an afternoon gardening!

 

Ideally situated within walking distance of downtown Irvington with a coffee shop, post office, bank, comedy club, and restaurants. The Irvington Farmers’ Market on Sundays is one of the best around, an 8-minute walk from home. The nearby pedestrian walkway along Railroad Ave offers convenient walking or biking access to beautiful Central Park and Lake Elizabeth.
