[ SOLD for $520,000 in September 2021 ] Welcome to the famed “Wood Streets” — this 1918 original orange grove home sits back on a corner lot and is surrounded by a black wrought iron fence and a colorful palate of flowers, plants, gardens, and trees. Ideal for entertaining, with a sizable living room, an adjacent step-down sitting room with fireplace, a family room which connects to the formal dining room, and the most delightful step-down sunroom which overlooks two gardens. The country kitchen, with recently refurbished antique stove and original wood floors, boasts an informal breakfast room and a pantry. There’s also an indoor laundry room and two bathrooms (one 3/4 and one half) on the main floor. There are two stairwells to reach the 2nd floor, with three large bedrooms and ample closet space, plus an additional guest room (without closet) or office space, as well as two remodeled bathrooms. Enjoy the quality of turn-of-the-century craftsmanship, with modern updates such as electrical (no knob & tube) and partial plumbing updates, central heat and two newer A/C units, newer ductwork, newer insulation, a 12-yr-old 50-year roof on house and garage, earthquake retrofit, solar attic fans, and a newer pump and filter for the black-bottom in-ground pool. The lot is completely fenced with gated parking, an impressive 2-car garage and 2-story storage barn, multiple fruit trees (grapefruit, lemon, tangerine, persimmon), 2 raised garden beds, mature Magnolia tree, covered patio, and a plethora of rose bushes. Homes like this are why people want to live in one of Riverside’s finest and most coveted neighborhoods.
