Calling all chocolate lovers, the Ghirardelli Mansion is officially for sale and could be the closest thing to Willy Wonka's Chocolate Factory that's out there!
The beautiful Colonial Revival style mansion was built for the Ghirardelli family in 1911 by the Milwain Brothers. Featuring impressive architectural details, ornate windows, box beam ceilings throughout, stunning living spaces, and lush surrounding grounds - this is one for the books.
Spanning 6,479 square feet, the central Piedmont home is just a short walk to Piedmont Park, Witter Sports Complex, and Dracena Park. Also nearby are Piedmont's top-rated schools, K-12, the Piedmont Community Center, Piedmont Community Church, Mulberry's Market, Piedmont City Hall, and so much more.
Starting with the incredible gourmet kitchen worthy of a chocolatier... or even Willy Wonka himself. Note the huge fridge and freezer, large center-island with stove top, and side wet bar. The perfect space for entertaining.
Moving towards the back of the house where a dream fireside work space is located just steps from the back patio and garden.
