$579,900 [ SOLD for $556,000 on 11/16/2016 ] There are a few select streets in the historic “Wood Streets” neighborhood that get “oooohs and ahhhhs” at the sheer mention of their names, and Castle Reagh Place is one!
This corner home is highly deceiving from the curb, as it actually boasts 2800 sq ft in size, complete with 4 bedrooms plus a library (could be 5th bedroom), living room, huge formal dining room, three bathrooms, two fireplaces, two laundry areas, remodeled kitchen, central air/heat, in-ground pool, and off-street parking for at least four vehicles!! If you want to fall in love, continue reading and experience the elegance as you view the photographs of this 1938 masterpiece!
Kitchen was remodeled in 2015 with reclaimed oak wood, Corian counter tops, two ovens, built-in microwave, recessed lighting, tile floor, dishwasher, a huge walk-in pantry, and room for a casual dining table. In addition, the formal dining room is quite large and would accommodate any number of people for holiday or special gatherings. The elegant living room boasts mahogany moulding, hardwood floors, fireplace, and a large window seat.
The master bedroom is quite large, with gorgeous hardwood floors, lots of closet space, and attached remodeled bathroom with claw foot tub and separate shower. There is another main floor bedroom, on the other side of the house, with two sets of closets, private entrance (would be ideal as a guest room), and access to a charming 3/4 bathroom. The library was once the 5th bedroom but has since been modified with the addition of a gas fireplace, built-in bookshelves and reading nook, and a media niche. And finally, there are two more bedrooms downstairs in the fully finished basement along with brand new carpeting, storage, and a bathroom/laundry room combo.
The fully enclosed backyard is low-maintenance with a delicious seedless navel orange tree, an in-ground pool which was re-plastered about a year ago, and pool equipment that was updated about 8 years prior to that. There’s an area behind the pool that could be used for gardening or a nice grassy sitting area, and a dog run behind one side of the house. In addition to the 2-car garage (with workshop), there is off-street parking for an additional 2-3 cars or boat or smaller RV.
Homes of this caliber and size are rarely offered for sale in the historical “Wood Streets” neighborhood, and this home is a City of Riverside Structure of Merit.
