1896 Queen Anne Victorian
Central Escondido
Escondido, CA

The Jewel of Escondido

This hidden Estate is referred to as the “Jewel of Escondido” sitting upon a huge sprawling yard with its formal gardens, Wrought Iron Victorian Fence, 15ft Hedges, an Award-winning Arbor and Gazebo adding to the ambience of this Estate.

The Queen Anne was built in 1896 by Albert H Beach and through the years it has been very well maintained until Harry Parashis came along and spent over a decade creating an Estate worthy of Museum Quality. Every item is Period appropriate and reflects what an Estate of 1896 would look like for the Wealthy of its time. Each room was Individually designed by 6 Artisans with Bradbury and Bradbury Wallpaper to capture what had existed in 1896. From the Minton Tile surrounding the Fireplace, with the inset from the home of General Grant, to each light fixture from Grand Estates found across the Country.

No expense was too much for Mr. Parashis, who invested over 3 million to create this Award winning One-of-a-Kind Victorian. The New Owners have gone to great lengths to maintain the Integrity of the work that Mr. Parashis Achieved, as well as updating the Security System, 24 station sprinkler system, adding a 100% solar system, upgrading the low voltage outdoor lightning (all LED’s) having the House put on the Mill’s Act, which reduces the Property tax greatly and is transferable to the new owner.

**So many hidden gems to discover upon a visit to the “Jewel of Escondido”.
