3932 Elmwood Ct., Riverside 92506 listed by THE SISTER TEAM

 

$444,900 [ IN ESCROW ] This 1914 Craftsman Bungalow in the heart of the historic Wood Streets neighborhood is approx 1850 sq ft with 4 bedrooms (including a master suite) and 2 bathrooms….surprise!

The iconic large front porch has a swing and is the gateway to an open floor plan with hardwood floors, brick fireplace, and spacious formal dining room with built-in bookshelves and the original hutch, as well as a swinging door leading to the kitchen. The kitchen was remodeled in 2001 with an island and Corian counters, gas stove, dishwasher, and built-in microwave.

The central air/heat is only 8 years old, and the hallway bathroom was remodeled with tile floor and claw foot tub. The master bathroom has new flooring and was recently repainted. The whole exterior of the home was repainted just this month, and a full copper re-pipe was undertaken about 15 years ago. Custom window shutters and wainscoting, as well as separate indoor laundry room too.

Three of the bedrooms are quite large, with the master suite boasting a very large window seat for extra storage, two closets, and a private full bathroom. The 4th bedroom, with closet, in the front of the house, is much smaller and would be a perfect office or reading room.

The lot size is 8,276 sq ft (.19/acre) and the back yard is ideal for children and pets. Alumawood-type patio cover is only 5-6 years old. Without a garage, the Tuff Shed, which is on a permanent foundation, would be ideal for extra storage, as well as the basement, where the water heater is located. Alley access and a long driveway for multiple vehicles and/or smaller RV parking.

Walking distance to shopping, restaurants, and schools. Ideal location and a short drive to downtown Riverside for entertainment such as The Fox Theatre, The Mission Inn Hotel & Spa, as well as museums and other fine retail establishments.
