[ SOLD for $340,000 on 1/05/2014 ]    This truly one-of-a-kind home is nestled in one of Riverside’s secret hideaways, at the base of Mt. Rubidoux.  Originally built in the 1930s, it has been upgraded to include a total of 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, and approximately 1800 sq ft living space total.

Step into this unique hidden treasure and you’ll think you’re living in a  giant tree house on a secluded street with incredible views of Mt. Rubidoux.  This home feels like an artist’s retreat!

A wall of windows overlooks the terraced outdoor living area of almost a quarter acre (10,454 sq ft). Entertain and garden to your heart’s content harmonized by a cascading pond and the shade of mature trees. Steps away from the wonderful hiking trails of Mt. Rubidoux and the miles of cycling along the Santa Ana River trail.

Upgraded features include central air/heat, indoor laundry, and generous master walk-in closet. There is no garage, but room to build one.

Standard sale.
