$289,900  [ IN ESCROW ]  WHAT?!?! A home in the historic “Wood Streets” under $300,000???? There are only two homes under $300,000 in this neighborhood right now. Don’t hesitate on this adorable diamond-in-the-rough cottage with 2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, and a bonus room (could be used as 3rd bedroom if needed — tax records state this house is a 3 bedroom even though this room doesn’t have a closet).

Built in 1911, this home has approx 1,038 sq ft including a formal dining room and living room with coved ceilings, central air/heat, and a claw foot tub in the bathroom, as well as a large pool-size backyard with outdoor fireplace and a 2-car garage. Don’t forget to check out the amazing closet and cabinet space in each of the two bedrooms.

Hardwood floors throughout, even under the carpeting in the bedrooms, but they need to be refinished. Home needs interior and exterior paint, but these are merely cosmetic fixes. Otherwise, the home is adorable, especially the screened-in front porch, and the quiet location on a cul-de-sac.

Walking distance to Central Middle School, RCC, and Bonaminio Park. Nearby bicycle trails, downtown Riverside with all its glorious shopping, entertainment, and famous Mission Inn Hotel and Spa. Sorry, but no FHA or VA offers at this time.
