421 8th Street -
Huntington Beach          
Evangeline Hotel 421 8th Street Huntington Beach, CA The building: This stunning 4,800 square foot 18 room hotel is located just .02 (two tenths) of a mile away from the crashing waves of sunny Huntington Beach California and blocks away from Downtown with shopping and dining. This amazing 1906-1907 constructed building is a perfect candidate for a full restoration. Two Architectural Historians have deemed this building potentially eligible for the National Register. With three full floors and attic (unfinished) at about 1,600 square feet each, this building would make an unbelievable single family home, which would be compatible with the surrounding neighborhood. Framed by two well established palm trees and accented by the original hitching-rings, a massive front porch and gigantic Craftsman-style door greet you as you enter the lobby of the hotel. The entry is open to the sprawling living room with coved ceiling, hardwood floors and built in bookcase and plate rails. The kitchen of this hotel is industrial and simple but is also very large and features an exposed brick chimney from the old wood burning stove, as well as a large walk-in pantry. The kitchen also features access to the back yard, which has a mature olive tree, and access to the original barn. There are two staircases to this building. The wide front staircase newel post is accented with egg and dart molding and offers a large, bright landing on every floor. These elegant spaces could be reclaimed from an earlier enclosure. The narrow rear staircase is simpler in design, originally for use of the hired help. Most of the interior doors are original five panel doors with the original numbers and slot for guest name labels. All of the windows to this building are double hung and original. To a trained eye, the only modification to the floor plan would be the enclosing of the landings on two floors, as well as the kitchen and several bathrooms. The vision for re-use: There is a peek-a-boo view to the ocean from the third floor, which would also be the perfect floor to open into a master suite. The second floor is spectacular the way it is, but a buyer might open the landing and add a kitchenette for the enjoyment of morning coffee and a cool drink in the evening on the massive front-facing balcony. The first floor is quite functional the way that it is. The great room can contain a living room and dining room. The kitchen and bathrooms would depend on the new owner’s taste. The ivy-covered barn could be demolished, but its old growth boards would make great material for reuse. A new garage with an apartment or studio on top could be considered on this double lot.
