[ SOLD for $225,000 on 6/14/2013 ]  Amazing value for this Spanish Colonial Revival in the historic “Wood Streets”!!   Built in 1924, this 3 bedroom (plus a bonus room), 1.75 bathroom home, which is almost 1500 sq ft,  is still very much original (with the exception of the kitchen) and needs some updating.  Terrific potential!  This home has been in the same family for 60 years.

Tons of original charm, built-ins, original hardwood floors, and beautiful woodwork throughout (unpainted wood door frames, French doors, and window frames)!  Good sized living room with original wood built-ins flanking the fireplace.  Large formal dining room with gorgeous built-in hutch (never painted).  Three bedrooms PLUS a bonus room which can be accessed through the back bedroom or the laundry room.  The bonus room would be a great nursery, office, or play room for the kids.

In addition to a walk-in basement with space for storage, wine cellar, furnace, water heater, etc., the roof was completely replaced in 2004.  The second story addition to the 2-car garage (with one sliding barn door) was added and permitted back in 1959, and is perfect for storage or a game room!  The pool-sized lot is 8,712 sq ft, with convenient alley access for RV or toys.

This is a STANDARD (equity) sale — no banks to deal with!

The main bathroom with built-ins, pedestal sink and original tub. The original tile floor has some cracking, but there are wonderful Riverside artisans who can replace this flooring to match the original tiles.

The kitchen was obviously remodeled in the 1970s; however, there is plenty of room, including a pantry and a nook area, that could easily be transformed into a modern kitchen.

Separate indoor laundry room, with bonus room in the back. Homeowners are in the process of preparing for an estate sale; hence, the clutter.

2-car garage with permitted addition from 1959. Lots of space for storage, or make the upstairs a game room.  The kids (young or old) will love it!
