4840 Charlotte Way, Riverside
[ SOLD for $358,000 on 12/21/2016 ] Adjacent to the Wood Streets, this ultra charming 1936 cottage boasts 3 bedrooms, 1.75 bathrooms (both remodeled), and 1400 square feet of living space with remodeled kitchen! Almost a complete remodel, this home is off-the-charts nice….all you have to do is decorate and finish the backyard. Everything else is already completed.
There have only been three owners of this home in the 80 years of its existence on this quiet street which intersects at Tower Road, at the border of the Wood Streets. The long-time owner of this home decided a face-lift was in order prior to selling, so he meticulously remodeled the kitchen, both bathrooms, and modified the room off the kitchen to better incorporate indoor laundry with the original walk-in pantry. Home has a 2 yr old HVAC system (central A/C and heat), as well as a whole house fan.
The remodeled kitchen, which boasts granite counter tops, stainless steel appliances, and tile floor, overflows into the formal dining room for that open floor plan which adds room and light. Original windows, front door, and fireplace, as well as the original living room heat register are features of this home which draw purists to this neighborhood. Hardwood floors have been refinished and flow throughout the home, with the exception of the master bedroom, which has cozy carpeting.
There are three bedrooms, including a master suite with two sets of closets and private remodeled 3/4 bathroom with custom full-extension cabinets with top-of-the-line hardware, floor-to-ceiling tiled shower, and copper plumbing. In addition to ample closet space, there is a pull-down ladder in the hallway which exposes tons of attic storage.
The backyard is a blank slate for your imagination to run wild. Pool? Spa? Raised garden beds? Fire pit? Gazebo? Water-wise landscaping? Carpet-like grass? There’s definitely plenty of room for any of these concepts, especially with the generously sized lot of 8,276 (.19/acre). The front yard has been professionally landscaped and both yards have auto irrigation.
