You can’t make this stuff up.
When it comes to old-fashioned renovation projects, you can’t go wrong with the old house.
So why not do it yourself?
Here’s how to renovate a century-old Victorian house in Newport Beach, California, and make it feel modern.
The house is located in Newport, a neighborhood of Santa Ana, California.
When you open the front door, you will be greeted by a large brick facade and an impressive Victorian-style roof that was installed in 1911.
The home is on the market for $2.2 million, and it has been listed on the California Real Estate Board.
When asked about the renovation, owner Robert Smith explained that the project took over three years to complete.
“I did the project because I wanted to be part of the history of Newport Beach,” he said.
The remodel, dubbed Newport Beach Retro, was commissioned by Newport Beach Preservation.
The project was part of a program that included a “Grandfather’s Day” event in the house.
In a statement, Newport Beach Mayor Jim Gurney said, “The renovation of this historic, Victorian home is a fitting tribute to the city’s rich history and to the Newport Beach community as a whole.
We are honored that the Newport Conservancy was so willing to invest in this historic project.”
Newport Beach was founded in 1872 and was the second-largest city in California after San Diego.
The city was the home of the Newport News Shipbuilding Company, and the city has a reputation as one of the most livable cities in the country.
