[ SOLD for $235,000 — 4/22/2011 ]   This historical California Bungalow was built in 1917 and has been in the same family for over 50 years!  A ‘standard’ sale, this 3 bedroom (plus upstairs bonus room), 2 bathroom home has been well-maintained all these years, and is “clean as a whistle”.  From the classic curb appeal with large front porch to the pool-sized backyard, you’ll be hard-pressed to find anything wrong with this home!

In addition to the old-world charm, you’ll enjoy the approximate 1500 square feet of living space, the 2-year-old central air/heat system, hardwood floors under freshly cleaned carpet, gas log fireplace, indoor laundry room, and sparkling clean original double-hung windows, some with multiple upper lights.  The large formal dining room wouldn’t be complete without the original built-in hutch, along with a window seat, perfect for storing your table leaf, blankets, linens, decorations, etc.

The serene pool-sized backyard (lot size 7840 sq ft) is bursting with citrus trees (lemon, navel orange, Valencia orange and grapefruit) along with a covered patio, 2-car detached garage and an RV access gate off the alley.  You will also be able to view the annual Mt. Rubidoux fireworks from the front porch!

This home has also been designated a City of Riverside “Structure of Merit“, which means this home “materially benefits the historic, architectural or aesthetic character of the neighborhood”.

This home is a STANDARD sale (not a short sale, not a bank repo).
