Neighborhood: 75 - Orange, Orange Park Acres E Of 55
1964 was quite a significant year! This is just a short list of notable things that happened — Martin Luther King Jr. was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize, the first Ford Mustang came off the assembly line, 8-track tapes were invented, G.I. Joe was created, and the Eichler Fairhills neighborhood of Orange was born.
In what seems like an era of “simpler times,” Saturday afternoons in the Fairhills neighborhood were filled with kids running to and from each glass house, jumping in pools, and listening to the beats of Marvin Gaye, The Temptations, Ray Charles, The Supremes, and The Beatles.
Cut to present day: One of these Fairhills homes, The Samhammer Residence — which always had its door open, and you could always hear sounds of tinkering to keep it in its tip-top shape — is for sale! This Claude Oakland design is situated in the perfect location with views. It offers 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a 2 car garage, newer roof, updated electrical, sewer main lined, upgraded radiant heat, pool, newer fences and is in great condition. This house is also eligible for the Mills Act Contract with the City of Orange that offers a significant reduction in property taxes (approximately 74%).
These homes were created to represent optimism, a better way of life, well thought out design, and diversity — and still do so today!
