[ SOLD for $499,900  on 03/27/2017 ]  Here it is…… a 1908 Craftsman Bungalow on the most well-known street in downtown Riverside within the Colony Heights Historic District, which embraces a dramatic assemblage of architecture and pride of ownership. This 4 bedroom, 2 bathroom home, with approximately 2400 sq ft of living space, welcomes you with a large wraparound porch, and upon entry through the original wood front door, the feeling of home and family jumps out and hugs you.

The first room you’ll visit is the living room with built-ins flanking the fireplace, and hardwood flooring. Original pocket door entry into the formal dining room with built-in hutch, as well as a library, and a remodeled eat-in kitchen with Corian counter tops, dishwasher, and plenty of cabinetry. Separate indoor laundry room too.

In addition to the amazing original features of this home, there are upgrades such as dual A/C units (one upstairs and one downstairs), updated electrical, and paid-in-full solar panels.  All 4 bedrooms are upstairs with gorgeous original pine flooring and woodwork, with two of the bedrooms having access to the front balcony for morning coffee or just a bit of fresh air. The large master bedroom is designated by its own set of French doors with privacy blinds. The upstairs landing has a built-in storage seat as well.

The front yard boasts blooming rosebushes, and the fully fenced pool-sized back yard is filled with lots of goodies like an herb garden, shade tree, yummy citrus, fenced gardening area, 2-car detached garage, alley access, RV parking, area for swing set, and access to the walk-down cellar. This area could be modified into a wine cellar if desired. The rear exterior of the home was recently painted.

Within walking distance to the Fox Theatre, many restaurants, the famous Mission Inn Hotel & Spa, as well as recreational locations such as Mt. Rubidoux with its miles of walking/jogging trails, Fairmount Park with its beautiful lake, playgrounds and golf course, and the Santa Ana River Trail famous for its bicycling. At Christmas time, you’ll even hear the clippity clop of horses pulling carriages through the neighborhood, where decorations and holiday spirit abound.

Reach out to us today for an appointment to view this spectacular home, which is a page right out of history!
