[ SOLD for $480,000 ]    This one-of-a-kind 5 bedroom, 4 bath pool home is nestled and tucked away at the end of prestigious Arroyo Drive in the “Victoria” neighborhood of Riverside — you gotta see it to believe it!  Privacy and fantastic views to die for!  Sellers have spared no expense, from the brand new stove and dishwasher in the newly remodeled kitchen to the gorgeous hardwood floors and remodeled bathrooms!  Spacious and open kitchen allows you to see and enjoy the family room and formal dining room.  Master bedroom suite is completely private and separate from other bedrooms, with a breathtaking view, and French doors leading to the 2-year-old wraparound wood deck to enjoy coffee in the morning or dinner in the evening!  The main house is 2907 sq ft and the pool room is 450 sq ft, great for entertaining or a fun getaway for the kids!  Huge custom-built laundry room with tons of storage.  Also, a very handy mud room for even more storage. 3-year-old exterior paint, dual A/C units, two fireplaces, 12-year-old roof, fruit trees, and 2-car garage with roll-up door.

All of this just down the street from The Victoria County Club, established in 1903 and possibly the State’s first such country club; it’s situated above and in the arroyo and offers a beautiful and natural environment.  The “Victoria” neighborhood is historic with streets that flow with the land, following the natural contours.  Varying house elevations make for an ever-changing urban environment.  Victoria has been part of Riverside since its foundation.

You can be in your new home in time for the holidays!
