3990 Oakwood Pl., Riverside

 

[ SOLD for $389,900 on 12/27/2019 ]  Built in 1921, this cute 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom cottage in the historic “Wood Streets”  neighborhood starts off with some big-ticket upgraded items such as 2-yr-old roof, 3-yr-old A/C, double pane windows, plantation shutters, remodeled bathroom with tiled walk-in shower with glass block wall, and kitchen that was enlarged and updated about 20 yrs ago with tile counters, with newer dishwasher, refrigerator, built-in microwave, and space for preparation island(s), with laundry and pantry.

The front porch was enclosed (and permitted) in the 1970s which added 200 sq ft and also provided more space to the front bedroom for a sitting area, home office desk, or nursery nook. Some new carpeting, flooring, and paint…and this house will shine!

The far back bedroom and 3/4 bathroom were also added (and permitted) which is another 200 sq ft. Total square footage of home is approx 1256, but this does NOT include the step-down sun room (which is plumbed for central air/heat).

The driveway and the 2-car garage are actually split down the middle and shared with the neighbor. The 1-car side of the garage for this house is not accessible by any vehicle (except maybe a motorcycle or scooter) due to the fence along the driveway; however, it has been turned into an art studio with window a/c unit, lighting, and double French door access. Behind this room is a tool room, and beyond this building is a shed for garden/yard supplies. The lot size is 8,276 sq ft (.19/acre).

The back yard is cross-fenced with a garden area, as well as a large shade tree for entertaining at its shady base in the warmer months. Walking distance to shopping, schools, and stores. This home has been in the same family for over 50 years — time to pass the baton to a new family.
