This vintage bungalow in Old Towne Orange is “a ‘wow’ home,” says Tony Trabucco of Orange Realty, the listing agent.

For one thing, it was built in 1899.

The remodeled, three-bedroom Craftsman is a blend of old and new. Original Douglas fir floors, an old-fashioned front porch and a historic carriage house reflect its origins. Modern amenities include an open floor plan, Sub-Zero refrigerator and an updated bathroom with marble counters and a jetted tub for two.

Outside are mature fruit trees, vegetable gardens, and a pergola with an above-ground spa.

The 1,336-square-foot house, at 225 East Palmyra Ave., comes with a perk. It’s covered by the Mills Act, which provides homeowners significant tax breaks for maintaining historical properties.

Pricetag: $ 829,900.

Apparently, someone, likely more than one person, did say “wow.” The house was listed on August 19 and was in escrow by the 25th.

We’ll see what it sells for.
