A rare find, a beautiful piece of Americana, is waiting for you in this absolutely enchanting, historic Colonial Revival with Craftsman influences. Full of architectural details and charm, the M. W. Peterson House was built in 1927 and has the Mills Act offering a huge tax saving to home owner! The White picket fence surrounds the front yard full of flowers. The inviting porch brings you into the light and bright living room with coved and tray ceiling, many original windows, built-in book shelves on each side of the beautiful, decorative, brick fireplace with wide mantle.

Through the archway heading into the dining room area there is a built-in buffet with glass cabinet doors and a matching arch above. Picture molding surrounds these rooms. There are 2 spacious bedrooms with ample closet space and crown molding. The bathroom has a huge soaking tub for de-stressing and relaxing after your long day. The kitchen has tile counters with ample counter space, a cute breakfast nook, and a view out the kitchen window from the sink to the huge backyard and gorgeously mature sycamore tree that shades the brick patio along with the brick pathways. The heating and AC system including new ducting was put in 2021, and has a Nest thermostat.

The house features many built-ins and plenty of closet space. Sellers have architect drawings for an ADU garage conversion. Fisher Park and its playground is part of the view out the front window. The backyard is its own oasis with mature trees and plants including plumeria, fruit trees, and cycads, along with plenty of grass area. Award winning K-8 school with full-time GATE and drama programs is nearby, along with OC School of the Arts.

The Morrison Park neighborhood is centrally located, walking distance to both Starbucks etc and all the vintage homes in the surrounding neighborhoods, along with a short drive to everything from Disneyland and Anaheim Stadium, to Main Place Mall and fantastic restaurants.
