[ SOLD for $440,000 on 3/20/2015 ]  “Wood Streets” Tudor revival built in 1931. This custom 2-story Tudor is on one of the most desirable streets, boasts 4 bedrooms (plus a couple more rooms to be used as den, office, etc.), 3 bathrooms, and approximately 2,000 square feet!!  Ultra convenient main floor bedrooms and bathrooms too!

Impressive living room with gorgeous original hardwood floors, fireplace, picture window and a dramatically high ceiling. The spacious formal dining room with coved ceiling has walls that were opened up into the kitchen, which makes the dining/kitchen area very open, bright and highly functional! The original French doors open up from the kitchen onto the front patio for year-round Southern California al fresco dining.

In addition, there is newer central air/heat, whole house fan, solar attic ventilator, newer water heater, alarm with sensor screens, remodeled hallway bathroom, and 5-yr-old appliances.

Peaceful back yard (lot size is 8,712 sq ft) is fully enclosed with block wall, twinkle lights, arbor, rose garden, years-old blooming camelia bush, multiple fruit trees (avocado, fig, lemon, orange) and a massive deck with built-in seating for entertaining.  Basement could be utilized as a wine cellar or extra storage.

In addition to a 2-car detached garage that has been drywalled, there is a workshop attached to the back of the garage which could be utilized as an office, potting shed, darkroom, or hobby room.

You won’t find a more friendly “Leave It To Beaver” neighborhood with some of the best neighbors!

This home has also been chosen to be part of the Mills Act, which is legislation that provides property tax relief to owners of historic properties for the purpose of assisting in the expense of restoration and maintenance. To qualify, a historic property must be listed on a national, state, county, or city register (see paragraph below), and this is the single most important economic incentive program available in California for owner occupied historic single-family homes.

This home is also Riverside Structure of Merit #753, which designates the house as an architectural contribution to the City of Riverside.  This designation places no additional burdens or restrictions upon the property owner, though it does facilitate relocation of the structure if it is ever threatened with demolition.
