[ SOLD for $420,000 on 12/27/2013 ]  Built in 1927, this stunning 2000 sq ft California Bungalow boasts 3 bedrooms (plus an office) and 2.5 bathrooms, and exhibits all of the character you would expect, along with the luxuries that a fine hotel would offer.

You’ll be greeted by an inviting front porch with beamed ceiling.  Once you walk through the gorgeous front entry door, please note the newer hardwood floors, new gas/wood fireplace, original coffered ceilings, and custom-built oak/vinyl dual pane gas-filled windows throughout.

The living room and family room are adjacent to each other, with a set of new oak glass French doors leading to a bonus room/office (could be 4th bedroom if needed).  Formal dining room is currently being used as a music room; however, there is a window seat and original built-in China hutch as well as coffered ceiling.

The kitchen has ample cabinetry, gas stove, and a breakfast nook, which is adjacent to the full-size laundry room and half bath which is ultra convenient for pool guests.  This remodeled bathroom boasts a wooden pocket door which was etched with the Riverside raincross emblem. There is plenty of space in this area of the house to pop out part of the wall to add a shower if needed.

On the first level, there is a large master bedroom suite which features custom cabinetry in the walk-in closet, unique beamed ceiling with recessed lighting, and a reading retreat with custom patio entrance doors and side panels overlooking the resort-like backyard, as well as a private remodeled bathroom with double sinks, tile floor and a custom-designed “champagne tub” with bubble bath jets.

The upstairs is a retreat in itself, with a sitting area at the top of the stairs, as well as two spacious bedrooms with lots of closet space, and a lovely remodeled three-quarter bathroom.

Additional features include a complete copper re-pipe of the home, updated electrical, 9-yr-old roof, 15-yr-old HVAC and duct work, spray foam insulation, 3-yr-old exterior paint, and a 1-yr-old whole house water treatment system by H20 Concepts (which comes with a 10-yr guarantee).

Once you step into the backyard, you’ll while away the hours on the private redwood deck (complete with ceiling fans, swing, water for misters, gas for heaters and electrical) which overlooks the Bogner inground pool/spa and the resort-like yard.  This yard provides room for just about anything you can think of, including volleyball, badminton, football, even golf or tennis.

In addition, you’ll appreciate the insulated 2-car garage (with pull-down ladder to storage), RV parking and hookups, extensive custom-stamped concrete with drainage, electric gate, slumpstone wall with lighted pillars, all on just under half an acre!

It’s been said that this home was moved here in the 1940s….from Hollywood!

There is just too much to describe about this beautifully renovated home, so be sure to read the detailed descriptions of each photograph below. Literally, hundreds of thousands of dollars have been spent on upgrading this home in the past 20 years.  You’ll be hard-pressed to find a home that has been more lovingly and tastefully modernized with the charm of yesteryear!
