Instant income is a bonus with this turn of the century home, adjacent to Santa Paula's historic district, is the perfect live-work environment. It is an icon in the commercial district across the street from Blanchard Community Library adorned by the Chumash Memorial Mural. There is a one bedroom rental upstairs and two, detached rentals at the rear. The home was built for bookkeeper and notary public, John Corey, back in 1890 and was considered to be the center of literary and musical activities in the community. He was the City's first postmaster. The most unique and original features of the home are unchanged with the beautiful woodwork, banisters and entry doors. It is Italianate in architecture with Eastlake details. The downstairs is perfectly suited to a variety of commercial uses. The home was occupied by the H.C. Blanchard family for 50 years. Many of Santa Paula's early teachers boarded there. It became the law office of the late C. Russell King in 1963. There is a kitchen, two bathrooms, living and family rooms, formal dining and potential for an office or bedroom. Accented by high ceilings and wood floor. There are two rentals at the rear and a very attractive remodeled apartment upstairs with a private entrance.
