5762 Riverside Ave., Riverside
[ SOLD for $380,000 on 5/28/2015 ] Large 1941 “Wood Streets” Spanish-style 3-bedroom 2-bathroom home boasts over 2100 sq ft, and that’s not including the 500+ sq ft sun room which was added in 1954, and is plumbed with air and heat.
This lovely home is much larger than it appears from the curb; however, there is a “welcome home” feeling as soon as you walk through the front door and are greeted by the first of two fireplaces in the large living room with tray ceiling and original hardwood floors.
Walk past the fireplace through one of the two doorways of your choice and into the enormous family room with fireplace #2. With lots of storage and hidden compartments sprinkled throughout this home, you’ll want to start unpacking immediately. Set up your game room or painting/yoga studio in the lovely sun room with wood-beamed ceiling overlooking the serene backyard.
In addition to the formal dining room, there is a breakfast bar in the kitchen, along with a desk area and lots of cabinetry, a newer farm sink, dishwasher, and pantry. Adjacent to the kitchen is the laundry room with built-in ironing board and access to a three-quarter bathroom.
Through the laundry room, you will reach the attached 2-car garage with auto roll-up door. Nice to pull straight into your garage and unload your groceries right into the house.
Three bedrooms, all with the lovely original hardwood floors, with the front bedroom offering two closets. The hallway bathroom boasts original tile work, and the hallway itself offers up extra storage, as well as the original telephone alcove!
The backyard has a spacious grassy area for the kids/grandkids/pets to play, as well as a poured cement area for patio table and chairs and/or above-ground spa. The total lot size is 10,019 sq ft (.23/acre — just shy of a quarter acre) with the front yard being practically maintenance free.
Updated central air/heat, $14,000 Spanish tile roof, alarm system, and appliances are just some of the upgraded features of this custom 1941 home that was actually built for the patriarch of Moss Bros. Motors, when he moved his car dealership to Riverside from Blythe in 1938.
