[ SOLD for $230,000 — 1/12/2011 ] “Wood Streets” Spanish Mediterranean revival has been in the same family for many years, and retains numerous original features that historical home enthusiasts appreciate!  Built in 1931, this home boasts approximately 1400 square feet with 2 large bedrooms with large closets for a home of this era, 2 bathrooms, and a bonus area for a desk (which lies between the kitchen and the indoor laundry room).

The large step-down living room features hardwood floors, beamed ceiling, original wood casement windows, and charming fireplace.  Next you’ll pass through the formal dining room with coved ceilings and an old-fashioned telephone alcove.  The freshly painted kitchen with lots of cabinetry beckons you to seek out the cheery breakfast nook with a built-in corner hutch.  The complete interior of the home was freshly painted with a soothing two-toned selection!

There is a 60+ yr old orange tree in the low-maintenance backyard.  Bet you didn’t know that this part of the Wood Streets neighborhood was once an orange grove!  Automatic sprinklers, wrought iron side gate, and tile roof are desirable exterior features.  There is also a 2-car detached garage with roll-up door; many of the neighborhood homes were originally built with 1-car garages.

Walking distance to RCC, the Riverside Plaza, movie theatres, supermarkets, etc.  Nearby the famous Mission Inn, a hospital, UCR, the 60 and 91 freeways, and Poly High School.
