Single Family in Redding

"Stormfield" - the iconic mansion built in Redding for author Samuel Clemens, best known as Mark Twain, who lived there from 1908 until his death in 1910. Upon surveying the countryside from his new home, Clemens exclaimed "How beautiful it all is. I did not think it could be as beautiful as this.� He stipulated the house should be built in the style of a Tuscan villa, after having enjoyed time in Italy, and derived the property's name from his short story "Captain Stormfield's Visit to Heaven." After a fire in 1923, the current estate was re-built in 1925 on the same foundation, retaining the original terraces, stone walls, stone pillars, and formal gardens. The home is sited on 28.53 private acres and adjoins 161 acres of Redding Land Trust. This magnificent country compound includes the 6,300 sf main residence with 4-5 bedrooms, 5/1 baths, and 3 fireplaces, plus the detached pool/carriage house offering heated gunite pool, 3 garage bays, as well as the 2nd floor guest/caretaker cottage with 2 bedrooms, full bath, living room and kitchen. Feel like you've stepped back in time where exquisitely appointed period details artfully blend with today's modern amenities. Grand formal rooms include the elegant dining room overlooking the stone terrace and rolling lawn, plus the formal living room with striking hand painted coffered ceiling and adjoining library. One of Redding's signature properties and a rare opportunity to own a piece of American History, just 58 miles to Midtown.
