Q. Can you tell us anything about the old Jack Benny line that mentioned Anaheim? I remember that from my childhood and my dad saying that line like it was some kind of punch line. But I’m curious if Benny had any connection to Anaheim?

Making this home even more amazing is the fact that it has largely been untouched. We’ve seen this home in person, and it’s very difficult to describe the condition. The photos accentuate the positive, and this home needs and deserves some serious renovation / restoration.

For people searching for a standard tract home...there will always be another one. But when it comes to historic homes, especially those built in the 19th century in Orange County, they rarely change hands. In this home's 115 year history, it has only had 3 owners, the most recent of which had been…

Some homes just have the "it" factor. And this is one of them. As of this writing, it's priced under $400k -- something tells me it could go into the $400s.

It's time for a little truth and self-honesty. We have many clients who want to be as close downtown -- Fullerton, Anaheim, Santa Ana, Orange, etc

This home is in a good spot, just South of La Palma and between Harbor Blvd. and Anaheim Blvd. It has good access to downtown Anaheim and the price certainly leaves a lot of room for improvements. It’s not a big house, but I actually think that make the project a lot more accessible. The seller notes that it does need some work, but I’ve found an in-person inspection is really the only way to assess condition. - bit.ly/1nNO7ev

Downtown Anaheim has seen a great many automotive dealerships come and go throughout the decades.

In 1930, two brothers-in-law Arlee Mills and E.R. McCoy opened McCoy & Mills Ford Tire & Tractor on the corner of Harbor and Commonwealth in Fullerton. Ten years later, E.R. McCoy expanded into Anaheim: McCoy Ford Car and Tractor southeast corner of Anaheim and Adele. The building is still here today.

In 1950 a fire destroyed the Fullerton location, and McCoy & Mills Ford re-opened at its present location on 700 W. Commonwealth.

19th Century in Placentia- Home of the Week 6/19/14

We don’t have a lot of pictures or information about this house. With 6 bedrooms in just about 2500 square feet, I have to think the floor-plan will be a little choppy — not uncommon for the era of home. The location is actually quite central, with great access to the 57 freeway. Subsequently, it’s not too far from Orange County’s Brew Corridor and Downtown Fullerton / Downtown Brea.

Here's to the odd-balls, the strange ones, the "killer opportunities," and the amazing homes that just need the right vision (and blood, sweat, and dollars). This 19th Century home in Placentia fits the bill, and just like any greasy spoon offering onion rings, I can't stay away.

Old Time Placentia Estate - Home of the Week 5/22/14

This home was built by a prominent celebrity and, as such, has some unique features. It also has many extras, not just the second home on the property (perfect for guests or family) but also a large detached garage with a large loft above — a space with a lot of extra potential.

We should really be calling this dream home*s* since there are actually two distinct homes included on this Placentia estate, but it appears the second property was built much later.
