Matteoli's In The News

Locally famous real estate mogul, Marc Matteoli, with his family and house, are featured in the latest version of Restore and Protect in today's Times- Standard. Restore and Protect being an occasional special feature the T-S publishes on local historical homes.

As of now, you'll have to pick up a hard copy version of the story to read it as I can't find it online. Oh, and look for it carefully. I almost missed it as it was mixed in with the inserts.

For those of you that don't already know, that house is across the street from mine.

Update: the Times- Standard web guy, Jeff Soderberg, e-mailed me the url of the story. It includes one of those picture slide shows.

The best shot was of the miniature piano with the tiny tuxedo.

Nice house.

You mean Restore and Preserve?

Well, it's not always that nice. Jeannette just cleaned it up since the reporter was coming. :-)

Hey, the T-S's web guy e-mailed me back. I guess the story is online at

I'll update the main post with the url.

Yes. Whatever. I can never get that title straight.

I should mention the T-S web site did have the url for the story. I just missed it. About 1/2 to 2/3 down the left side of the home page, there's a scroll down menu for "Special Sections". That's where it was.

No fault of the T-S, really. When you're trying to include a lot of information on a page, it's hard to have everything where everyone will notice it.

Marks no mogul. He has worked very hard and stayed steady to his work and community. What he has he has earned and deserves.( anything moving in your gray matter Tad) We always like Mark for his good nature and kindness.

Well, I guess it depends on your definition of mogul. I meant nothing offensive at all, when using the term.

I just figure he's done quite well and is probably one of the top real estate guys in the county. Maybe that's not the exact definition of mogul, but that's what I meant. Again, no offense intended.

Is that you, Jeannette?

From my online dictionary:
mogul A very rich or powerful person; a magnate..

Well, that might be fluffing things a little, but close enough for me. He's well off financially, and knows most of the movers and shakers in the county, so he has some pull. Maybe if you just left out the "very" part of the definition?

Jeeze, and this is from the guy (Fred) that corrects all the mistakes I make on my blog!

Did you know Mark is personally responsible for the revitalization of Old Town? He chaired the first city of Eureka Redevelopment advisory committee, or something like that.

No, I didn't, although I know he's been involved in any number of local projects. I don't know if the RAC role would apply toward the definition of mogul, or not. Good enough for me, though.

I just read the story. Now I'm going to have to drive by the house and look at it more closely. I really like studying the Victorian era...not just the architecture but the period, it's mores and values; the architecutre is a reflection of that time: The Gilded Age.

The story mentions that area of town as once being dubbed Eureka's Nob Hill. Except for it isn't a hill. There is a Nob Hill desginated on some old platt maps that I looked at recently. It's in the southwest section of town, outside of the city limits near Pine Hill, where Herrick and Elk River roads intersect.
