My mission is to return the Wheeler Mansion into the stately property it once was, built for hosting lavish events, catering to those who enjoy unique historic atmosphere with a more modern touch. 


 I want to create an artistic environment with a sense of warmth and friendliness that will again, become the centerpiece for the Orange community to enjoy as well as hosting guests from all over the world.   


My dream has always been to own and operate a retreat space for creative people to gather and share knowledge and experiences. This property allows me to do that and more. With 5 rentalable bedrooms in the Mansion and 3 bedrooms in the Carriage House for Bed and Breakfast use, and with enough space on the ground floor and outdoor areas, I will be able to create a number of opportunities. I have always wanted a hedge maze garden or labyrinth. The vibe of the mansion, the land area and the history of the Mansion the opportunity lends itself to the idea. Once finished, I will be sharing its beauty with the community for tours.


I hope my love of renovations shine through all of the decay the mansion sustained during its 5 year abandonment.
