[ SOLD for $680,000 on 1/20/2016 ] Built in 1888, this Queen Anne Victorian mansion was once owned by Dr. Wood, namesake of the “Wood Streets” neighborhood. This exquisite and historic home, which once was part of 20 acres, is now Landmark #108 and has been restored with some modern features under the watchful eye of the City of Riverside and the Riverside Historical Society.
This 4-bedroom, 4-bathroom home with 3,655 sq ft retains much of its original historic features, including stained glass windows, six fireplaces with tile surrounds and wood mantles, chandelier medallions, elegant staircase woodwork, push button light switches with dimmers, and a basement.
What is known as the “Ames-Westbrook House,” is featured in Chapter 15 (page 49) of the book entitled “Adobes, Bungalows, and Mansions of Riverside, California Revisited” by Esther H. Klotz and Joan H. Hall.
Modern features include remodeled kitchen and bathrooms, convenient upstairs laundry, central air/heat, and updated plumbing/electrical. Too many amazing features to list here, so don’t miss the photo captions.
Each bedroom has private bathroom access, including a master suite with sitting area, fireplace, and walk-in closet.
There is a third floor which has been cordoned off, but could easily be converted back into living square footage or additional bedrooms/bathrooms. There is an additional approximate 1000+/- square feet on the third floor. Extreme potential.
The extensively landscaped corner lot is just under half an acre (18,295 sq ft) with citrus trees, a koi pond, outdoor seating areas, lighted gazebo, and space for a 4-car garage.
*Homeowners may consider selling the house completely furnished (grand piano is negotiable).*
A stunning architectural treasure that welcomes you through an inviting doorway into the past!
