4540 Oakwood Pl., Riverside
[ SOLD for $435,000 on 3/21/2018 ] Deceiving from the outside, this house is actually just under 1900 sq ft with 3 bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms, including a large permitted bonus room AND library with fireplace. Built in 1943, you still get all the charm you’d expect from a “Wood Streets” home, including TWO fireplaces.
In addition to the 1940s charm, you’ll be blessed with dual pane windows throughout, newer paint (certain interior rooms and whole exterior), permitted family room and library, as well as central air/heat (less than 10 yrs old), recently insulated attic and family room walls, and a 2-car attached garage with lots of cabinetry and automatic roll-up door.
Galley type kitchen with gas stove, built-in microwave, dishwasher, and pantry with pull-out drawers. All appliances, including stackable washer/dryer are staying with the house. The master bedroom suite includes two closets (one a walk-in), and private bathroom with jet tub and separate shower. Each bedroom boasts a ceiling fan, and the middle bedroom even has a skylight.
The back yard is large enough (9,148 sq ft) for a pool if desired, but for now enjoy the multiple fruit trees (grapefruit, blood orange, lime, and apricot), the large fully enclosed garden area, dog run on the side, and the huge covered patio with two 50-gallon rain barrels. There is an adorable sitting area just outside the library’s double French doors for morning coffee, afternoon tea, or freshly squeezed citrus juice from your own backyard trees.
The front yard boasts a drought tolerant landscape, complete with water feature. What more could you want in a “Wood Streets” home?! Houses are selling quickly in this market, so don’t hesitate on this beauty with lots of square footage and space to stretch your wings, both inside and out.
