A more than 100-year-old home was scheduled to be moved at 5 a.m. from its location on Myrtle Street in Arroyo Grande to a location about a half-mile away in the Village.
Doing so will save the Stillwell home — which was built sometime between 1890 and 1905 and has not been designated historical — from demolition. Its new owner, Duke Sterling, and his wife, Lori, plan to live in the home at 122 Allen St.
Duke Sterling will also use part of it as a satellite office for his business, Central Pacific Insurance Services, which is based in Grover Beach.
The city has been trying to find a home for the house for about a year, he said.
Never miss a local story.
“The city wanted to keep it in Village core district, and we had a lot that would accommodate the house,” he said.
Sterling said he plans to renovate the approximately 1,300-square-foot house to its original design and reconfigure it so it’s a little more livable.
