As a tribute to the past, this majestic historical beauty, built on great bones, now features modern conveniences and a lifestyle to go forward for the next 100 years.

Anna Katherine Doran, a nurse, founded this majestic beauty circa 1912 originally as a medical care facility with a Sanatorium (a place to recuperate for people with chronic illnesses) next door (that no longer stands).  Both buildings were constructed by the Trewhitt-Shields Construction Company from Fresno, California.  Trewhitt-Shields Construction Company built a line of different structures and homes all through Fresno some now in the National Historic Registry, one recognizable is the Tower Theater in Fresno, CA.  A year later Ms. Doran converted the medical facility into a home to host the Dominican nuns, nurses, and other families who helped care for the sick at the adjacent Sanatorium.  One year later this majestic dame was sold as a residence and continued thru the years to be sold as a residence to many prestigious local businessmen and their families and even a California State Senator.

This majestic two-story beauty boasts 6 large bedrooms and 4 full baths.  This exquisite residence is situated on a large 16,000+ square foot corner lot in the highly desirable Central downtown area of Hanford, CA.  A comfortable front porch welcomes you in and is a nice spot to sit and sip iced tea with family or guests.  The stunning foyer boasts original oak flooring and neutral colors flow throughout the open floor plan.  In the elegant Great Room, you’ll find a fireplace with a wood stove, stunning coffered ceilings, wainscoting, and brand-new double-hung windows; windows throughout the residence were all replaced.  Off the great room, double French Doors lead to the formal office and an area for a library.  A spacious formal dining area greets you on the other side of the foyer with a gorgeous built-in glass door buffet with abundant storage.  A bright comfortable breakfast room with a radiant seat by the window helps start your day.  Stylish and spacious, the remodeled kitchen boasts a functional galley layout with quartz counters and premium appliances.  Located just off the kitchen is the laundry room area and backdoor entry. The serene primary bedroom ensuite has been remodeled featuring a step-in shower.  Five other large bedrooms and baths are located throughout the upstairs of the house giving residents plenty of space and privacy, including one bedroom and bath downstairs.  Two of the four remodeled baths have original claw-foot soaking tubs and the others offer tiled showers, all baths have tiled flooring and new vanities.

Zoning allows for either professional office or residential zoning.

This exquisite iconic residence/possible office awaits the right buyer to make it their own.
