Property description

This Victorian property was built in 1894 and covers 1/2 acre in the downtown historic district. The owners reside in the 17-room main house, which they have recently restored. In March, 2013, the upper level of the carriage house was completely remodeled and is now, for the first time, offered for short-term rental. The grounds are surrounded by walls, trellises, and a portico gated entrance. David Austin old English roses intertwine with wisteria, honeysuckle and passion flowers. Fruit trees, vegetable garden and ornamental perennial gardens bloom from Spring through Fall.
In season, enjoy picking fresh herbs, heirloom tomatoes, vegetables, blueberries and strawberries from our small organic kitchen garden. Feel free to pick mint or lemon verbena for a cup of tea while sitting on hand-carved antique teak garden benches.
Our historic central location is perfect for walking or biking to all downtown & OSU events, restaurants, parks and entertainment.
The rental is on the upper level of the Carriage house. The lower level is not used for car parking, thus no garage doors opening & closing.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: Dan and Margaret Burleson welcome you to their newly restored historic Victorian property. After years spent working and traveling in Asia, we retired to lovely Corvallis. 8 years ago, we founded a popular gift store here in Corvallis that supports local & international non-profit organizations benefiting women, children, and families. We have enjoyed furnishing our Victorian with Asian and American antiques. We look forward to sharing our passion for gardens and historic homes with you.

Why the Owner Chose Corvallis, OR, USA:
While we could have chosen to retire anywhere with internet access (Dan is a computer consultant), we chose sweet Corvallis. (We love living in a small but vibrant town with no freeway through it). After selling our nearby country property, we purchased this local landmark property in an historic neighborhood surrounding Central Park. We have spent the last several years restoring the home, carriage house and gardens and are ready to share it with others.
