Description

Here’s your chance to own and live in one of the finest pieces of Glendora history! One of Glendora’s oldest and most beautiful homes, the historic Scofield House, is for sale for the first time in over 40 years.

Known to most as the elegant Victorian home on Baseline near Grand, the Scofield House was built for Sanford and Mary Scofield in 1887. The couple, who were among the first to participate in the area’s citrus industry, had recently arrived in what is now Glendora from Illinois with a large inheritance and dreams for a stylish house that they had no idea would still be standing in all its glory 130 years later.

The grand Scofield House tells a story spanning three centuries. It begins during a time of horses and buggies and new railroads and pioneering cities and groves of citrus trees, and it involves prominent families in Glendoran history, like the Gordons and the Bakers in addition to the Scofields. This amazing house has seen Glendora grow, new housing divisions built around it, the advent of automobiles, and the unveiling of the 210 Freeway. The house has been held by specific families for decades, and it was used as a fraternity house for Citrus College. It’s been rented to various folks, and it’s been neglected and run down and then carefully and lovingly restored.
The current owners, Herbert and Teresa Nelson, have spent years carefully and affectionately restoring this beautiful home to its original grandeur while adding modern touches like solar panels and making it the perfect home for their family. Herbert bought the home in 1977, and he and Teresa were married in its parlor in 1983. They raised their children there and spent the past 40 years living their dream in their historic Victorian home. From holidays with large family gatherings in the grand home to Halloween each year with all the decorations going up and down in a single day to add to the magic for the neighborhood, this beloved home stands proudly at the center of so many cherished memories for the Nelsons and plenty of others. The home has been the Nelsons’ hobby, their passion, their link to an earlier era in history, and the place where they have loved spending their time and sharing life together with family and friends.

And now the time has come to pass the torch to the next lucky family who will purchase the famous Scofield House and carry on its legacy.
