There’s this 100+ year old, beautifully restored, vintage home just north of the 91 freeway on Brookhurst Street. It sits in a gated mini-estate surrounded by wrought iron and a powered gate.
You could call it a 50/50 estate: the main home was moved over 50 years ago, in one piece, from the Allgeyer citrus orchard at Brookhurst and La Palma where it joined the original ranch house. It’s old address (10011 La Palma) no longer exists when you search Anaheim’s building records! This one piece transport tidbit is critical, since it was moved sometime before the 91 freeway was opened between Magnolia and Harbor circa 1956-1958. Definitely hard to move a 2 story building under that Brookhurst overpass…
How many memories could these walls reveal? One is of a Fullerton pioneer who changed this county with aerospace and industry (achievements including bringing $30 million in new industry to the area, examples being Hughes Aircraft and Kimberly Clark) giving this vintage estate a link to the history and growth of our beautiful Orange County and .
And the long time owners, Robert Louis Clark and Helen Allgeyer, are a story worth telling with their grandfather, Charles Allgeyer. If you are interested, here is the original blog with more of their life story!
104 years later, it is a remarkable vintage property. Much of the restoration preceded the current owners, meticulously carried out by the Brass family (owners from 1975-2001), we believe. This estate is well worth a tour! Currently listed by us here at Millennium 3 Real Estate for $949,000, it is quite a bargain knowing its history and the potential to accrue rental income from the old ranch house. Don’t miss out!

Thank you for viewing!
