January 24, 2015

 

[ SOLD for $680,000 on 1/20/2016 ]   Built in 1888, this Queen Anne Victorian mansion was once owned by Dr. Wood, namesake of the “Wood Streets” neighborhood. This exquisite and historic home, which once was part of 20 acres, is now Landmark #108 and has been restored with some modern features under the watchful eye of the City of Riverside and the Riverside Historical Society.

This 4-bedroom, 4-bathroom home with 3,655 sq ft retains much of its original historic features, including stained glass windows, six fireplaces with tile surrounds and wood mantles, chandelier medallions, elegant staircase woodwork, push button light switches with dimmers, and a basement.

What is known as the “Ames-Westbrook House,” is featured in Chapter 15 (page 49) of the book entitled “Adobes, Bungalows, and Mansions of Riverside, California Revisited”  by Esther H. Klotz and Joan H. Hall.

Modern features include remodeled kitchen and bathrooms, convenient upstairs laundry, central air/heat, and updated plumbing/electrical. Too many amazing features to list here, so don’t miss the photo captions.

Each bedroom has private bathroom access, including a master suite with sitting area, fireplace, and walk-in closet.

There is a third floor which has been cordoned off, but could easily be converted back into living square footage or additional bedrooms/bathrooms. There is an additional approximate 1000+/- square feet on the third floor. Extreme potential. 

The extensively landscaped corner lot is just under half an acre (18,295 sq ft) with citrus trees, a koi pond, outdoor seating areas, lighted gazebo, and space for a 4-car garage. 

*Homeowners may consider selling the house completely furnished (grand piano is negotiable).*

A stunning architectural treasure that welcomes you through an inviting doorway into the past!

Riverside’s Historic Victoria Avenue

July 1, 2010

 

Victoria Avenue, Riverside California

So many times, we take for granted all of the wonderful places and things to do in the cities where we live.  Today, my friend Suzie encouraged me to wake earlier than usual and head out for a 5-mile walk along the City of Riverside’s historic Victoria Avenue.  This 4-mile-long botanical and scenic parkway, which was created in 1892, and listed on the National Register of Historic Places, is dotted with palm trees, citrus trees, rosebushes, benches, and even a convenient bike trail.

In 2002, Tara and I joined some friends for a 3-day 60-mile breast cancer fundraiser walk, and we proudly used Victoria Avenue as our training ground.  Due to many trees, there is some scattered mid-day shade which encourages walking most anytime of the day, except when the summer temperatures rise above the 3-digit mark!

I encourage you to take some time to smell the roses (literally) and walk, jog or bike along historic Victoria Avenue for some fresh air, sunshine and exercise!  Maybe I’ll see you out there…
