$699,000 [ COMING SOON ] Once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to own a piece of Riverside history in the heart of the historic Wood Streets. This 1929 Tudor Revival is situated on Chapman Place, which is arguably the most famous street in the Wood Streets, and boasts one of the largest lots in the entire neighborhood, at approximately 18,252 sq ft (.41/acre).
This unique pool home is reminiscent of 1920s old Hollywood, right out of a magazine or movie, and has retained many original features such as glass door knobs, sconce lighting, French doors, pedestal sinks, wood windows, and hardwood floors (preserved under carpeting).
Generous square footage of 2,566 living space is complemented by 3 bedrooms (all of which are upstairs), 4 baths (2 full upstairs, one half downstairs, and one half in the pool house), high ceilings on both levels, large living room with fireplace and tray ceiling, a den (which could be modified into a main floor bedroom), large family room, formal dining room, a sunny breakfast nook off the kitchen, and separate indoor laundry room.
There is a magnificent view of Mt. Rubidoux (and fireworks) through the original living room windows. The fabulously grand staircase boasts an amazing window on the landing, which leads to the sizable master bedroom suite that includes two separate closets with built-ins, as well as a Juliet balcony, and adjoining private bathroom. Two secondary bedrooms upstairs also flaunt unique architectural features, including a convenient laundry chute.
Some significant upgrades include the tile roof replacement in 2008 to match the original tile roof (for $36,000), re-roofed patio in 2016, re-plastered pool in 2009, complete change-out of HVAC unit and electrical panel in 2007, and front landscaped garden which was designed by Nanscapes in 2011.
In addition to a detached 2-car garage and large attached tool shed, there is a gazebo pool house with a changing room and half bath overlooking the enticing in-ground pool and grand back yard with fruit trees and rose bushes.
