[ SOLD for $289,900 on 12/22/2015 ]  Adorable 1922 California Bungalow in the heart of the historic “Wood Streets” complete with front porch swing! This 2 bedroom, plus bonus room, 1 bathroom home is priced to sell, so don’t hesitate or you’ll lose out.

Approximately 1100 sq ft, and the living room boasts original hardwood floors, original wood-framed windows, and gas and wood-burning fireplace. Formal dining area with original built-in hutch and reproduction framed mirror above the hutch. To the right of the hutch is a glass paneled door that leads you to a bonus room which could be used as an office, play room, or 3rd bedroom (no closet). OR, you could expand the kitchen all the way into this room; we’ve sold a similar floor plan that was modified this way and it was amazing!

Kitchen has been updated with tile counters and tile flooring, lots of cabinetry, dishwasher, butcher block preparation island, newer gas stove, included frig. Both bedrooms are good size, with large closets, and wood flooring (condition unknown)  under carpeting. Bathroom with claw foot tub plus separate shower and pedestal sink. And indoor laundry (stackable washer/dryer are negotiable).

Composition roof is only 4 years old.  Yard (7,405 sq ft)  includes rose bushes, extra wide driveway parking, shade tree in front, apple and citrus trees in deep backyard, along with a fenced garden area behind the 1-car detached garage (which was extended about 100 sq ft via permit many years ago which accommodates a work bench). Permitted patio cover off the back of the house and a water feature between the patio and garage with gold fish and water plants (all it needs is a pump and the waterfall will flow).

Walking distance to shopping and schools. Short drive to downtown and the Mission Inn. Not many homes available in the “Wood Streets” under $300,000 — don’t hesitate!
