About the Property

PRICE REDUCED. Across from Bidwell Mansion and Gateway Science Museum, within walking distance to The Museum of Northern California Art, Chico History Museum, Downtown Chico, CSU and blocks from Enloe Hospital, this property is in the heart of Chico, but still be in a private setting. Built in the early 1900’s by Frank Clough and his wife Ellen Stansbury, this house became known as the “The Yellow and White House”. In 1992 it was turned it into The Esplanade Bed and Breakfast, the first Bed and Breakfast in Chico when it became also known as “The Magic Yellow House”. It has 7 beds, 7 baths, a beautiful front porch, a large wood deck in the back along with 5 parking spaces. The house backs up to a cul-de-sac street with a private and tranquil setting. It is almost 2,700sf and that does not include the unfinished part of the basement space, which is over 1,100sf. As soon as you enter the oversized front door you are in the living room with high ceilings, gas fire place and lots of light coming through several windows. The breakfast room is conveniently located next to the living room and also has high ceilings, double pocket French doors, a beautiful built-in book shelf and a large window with a garden view. You keep going through the breakfast room and you arrive at the kitchen with lots of natural light, high ceilings, ceiling fan, gas stove, real wood cabinets, stainless-steel appliances, and the details from the last century. The Kitchen has direct access to a private wood deck on the back of the house. Two of the 7 bedrooms are on the first floor and every bedroom has its own bathroom. The bedroom next to the kitchen has a small office and the original claw-foot tub in the bathroom. The second downstairs bedroom has a bay window with a view to Esplanade, stained windows and a jet tub in the bathroom. On the second floor there are 4 more bedrooms, one with a 180-degree view window. The seventh bedroom or game room is in the basement, and it was once used as the live-in-manager’s room for the Bed and Breakfast. This house is historical, it is magical and once a very successful business. Furniture is negotiable.
