The seaside town of Pacific Grove, Calif., situated right beside Monterey, is home to Trimmer Hill, an estate that has been placed on the National Register of Historic Places by the U.S. Department of the Interior. It was built in 1892 by the first mayor of Pacific Grove, Dr. Oliver S. Trimmer, who was known for generously providing free medical care to the town's people, according to the home's Zillow listing. Preserved beautifully, this estate's character shines through in all of the details.
In the photo below, the home is delicately lit at sunset, drawing extra attention to the use of beautiful stained glass in the front door and living room windows.
Gorgeous hardwood graces the floor in most areas of the home and is complemented by vibrant, earth-tone colors like the red and green seen below. Stained glass adds a stunning yet subtle splash of color in the large windows.
A small fireplace is fixed on the smallest section of wall in this living room area, making great use of awkward space that results from an asymmetrical floor plan.
Step into the next sitting area and another set of large, gorgeous windows featuring red and yellow stained-glass welcome you. Off to the right is another fireplace that makes use of a small section of wall between large, open doorways.
A portion of exposed brick remains above the stovetop in the kitchen, creating a rustic, homey feeling in an otherwise modern and updated space.
The dining room, however, is dripping with Victorian detailing, from the elaborate paneling to the patterned molding and ceiling. Large windows with rich, luxurious drapes illuminate all the intricacies in this room.
The bedroom in the image below is situated in a space with large, asymmetrical ceilings, so exposed redwood beams fill the vaulted portion of ceiling, mimicking the wooden detailing on the opposite side of the room.
Turning around reveals the beautiful wooden staircase, pictured below, that leads up to a small loft space featuring more exposed redwood.
The master suite is much larger and features much lighter hardwood than the previous bedroom, making this room feel warmer and brighter. An adjoining sitting room with built-in shelving and a tiny alcove with ocean views, perfect for reading, can be seen through the double-wide doorway below.
The master bathroom can be seen below, and it has been updated to contain a dry sauna, which perfectly flows with the hardwood detailing found throughout the home. Talk about waking up in the lap of luxury!
An aerial view of the property (which can be seen in the bottom left corner of the photo below) shows the proximity of gorgeous Trimmer Hill to the Pacific Ocean.
