Inside the Hartland Mansion

The Hartland Mansion has a history like no other.  Dating back to the 1940’s, the estate begun as two separate residences in the historic 6th Street District.  In the early 70’s the two homes were purchased by the Arvey Estate.  A massive renovated plan was commissioned to join the town homes into one that would would have about 13,000 square feet.  Mr. Arvey sent his architect to Disneyland to replicated the exterior and facade of the Plaza Inn on Main Street and spared no expensive in building his Victorian Mansion.

In 1978 the Arvey estate sold the home to the Hart Family.  Due to Mr. Arvey’s untimely departure, the Mansion was not completed and the Hart’s took on the overwhelming talk of completion.  In 1980 and 1981 the Mansion had two fires which leveled the house.  When Tony Hart made the decision to completely rebuild the Mansion, she had her architect keep the exterior design and floor plan identical to the original plan, but embellished and enlarged the design to increase the Mansion’s size to a staggering 31,000 square feet under roof.  The rebuilding and restoration took nearly 7 years to complete.

The estate is currently listed at $7,999,000.
