[ SOLD for $399,900 on 12/29/2015 ]  WOW! 1930s Spanish Colonial Revival pool home in the Palm Heights Historic District (a designated neighborhood which conveys a sense of architectural and historic flavor from the early 20th Century).

Just shy of 2,000 sq ft, this 3 bedroom, 1.75 bathroom home starts off with an inviting front porch, and original front door with original hardware. The spacious living room boasts hardwood floors, gorgeous wood-burning fireplace with mantle alcove, large front picture window flanked by built-in display niches, and trey ceiling. Spanish archway leads to the formal dining room with coved ceiling and gorgeous bank of windows overlooking the front porch.

From there, you’ll make your way into the galley kitchen with tile floors, open faced cabinetry (doors are stored elsewhere in case this isn’t your style), bright and cheery breakfast nook, and separate laundry room.

Wide hallway, with telephone alcove, leads to three very spacious bedrooms (including a master suite) and the retro hallway bathroom. In addition, there is a bonus room that would be ideally suited as an office or gym which also has interior access to the basement for wine or extra storage! You’ll be pleasantly surprised with the great closet space for a home of this era too.

Exit the French door from the master bedroom suite onto the back patio which is perfect for entertaining, especially with the refreshing built-in black-bottom pool and spa, as well as fruit trees (lime, peach, plum, avocado), raised garden beds and grassy area behind garage, and a built-in gas BBQ. The lot size is 7,841 sq ft (.18/acre) and is laid out really well.

Only two families have lovingly owned this home since it was custom built 85 years ago. Amazing neighbors and neighborhood, and ideal location. Potential RV parking, wrought iron driveway gate, Spanish tile roof, and 2-car detached garage.

Walking distance to the Riverside Plaza, nail salons, all kinds of restaurants (Bann Thai, Islands, California Pizza Kitchen, Cherry On Top,  etc.), movie theater, banks, Staples Office Supply, urgent care, Dairy Queen, and veterinarian offices! Don’t hesitate on this classic Spanish style!
