1182 Olive St
Chico, CA

RARE OPPORTUNITY to live in a true Chico Charmer! The seller believes the original house is circa 1885-1890. Since the purchase 40 years ago, the home has been lovingly remodeled from top to bottom while maintaining its character and incorporating modern improvements to make this living at its finest. No detail has been overlooked and touches of Chico artistry can be found throughout. Step into the light and roomy home with stunning hardwood floors and soaring ceilings. The kitchen is a chef's dream with a Blue Star 6 burner gas range, a Koehler cast iron farmhouse sink with a Waterstone pull down faucet and an Enclume wall mounted pot rack. Carrera marble counters top off the painted custom maple cabinetry. Even the JennAir refrigerator doors have been customized to match the cabinets. The living room offers two sets of French doors and transoms, a built in bookcase/media cabinet and an architectural 1920's faux painted slate fireplace surround with a custom mantle and a handcrafted fire screen made by a local artist. The inviting master bedroom offers two mirrored closets and adjoins a stunning bathroom with a walk in Italian relief tiled shower, jewel box ceiling and a Japanese-style soaking tub. The permitted 270' guest house (included in the sf and room count) offers 1 bed/1 bath and the perfect opportunity for an AirBnb, yoga or art retreat. The possibilities are endless. All this plus a Bocce ball court and stunning yard will make you never want to leave home!
