5809 Brockton Ave., Riverside CA 92506

[ SOLD for $480,000 on 2/07/2014 ]   Built in 1891, this 122-yr-old Queen Anne Victorian residence is one of the few remaining homes of its kind in Riverside, and is deemed a Structure of Merit by the City of Riverside.  This home boasts 6 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, and a total of 4,135 square feet!

You are welcomed by a wraparound porch, and the original owner’s initials are etched in the front door glass (Milton J. Daniels who was a Civil War captain, as well as bank president and a Minnesota State senator). The entrance hall is graced with a carved woodwork stairway and original stained glass window. To the right, are front and back parlors with original pocket doors, as well as a formal dining room and a library with adjoining remodeled bathroom.  The large eat-in kitchen, with fireplace, has been updated with modern conveniences, including a pantry and laundry room.

In addition to the original features such as 5 main floor fireplaces and inlaid wood floors, there is also central air/heat, partial updated copper plumbing, and partial updated electrical.

Upstairs, 4 of the bedrooms boast transom windows above each doorway; though offering utility in their implementation, their classic looks are a signature element of this home!  There are 2 more bathrooms on the 2nd floor, in addition to a 5th bedroom and another room that was once the servant quarters with separate entrance and sun porch.

There is a useable attic, inground pool/spa and a monitored security system.  The large lot size is 11,326 sq ft (a little over a quarter acre) complete with a circular driveway and citrus trees.  This home was once surrounded by a 10-acre orange grove.

This is a STANDARD (equity) sale — no banks to deal with!  We can close escrow as fast as you need to close!
