[ SOLD for $289,000 on 4/18/2017 ] Bring your paint brush and ideas when you view this adorable 1949 starter home with 2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, 1136 sq ft. This home is for someone who isn’t afraid of a little elbow grease — a little bit of TLC goes a long way with a well-built house such as this, which is ideally located adjacent to the Wood Streets and nearby shopping.
The home has been maintained over the years, so most of the needed updating will be cosmetic. There are no cracks in the ceilings or walls, a great indication of a solidly-built home! In addition to a one-car attached garage with laundry, the many features include a large front porch, hardwood flooring throughout, lathe and plaster walls, central air/heat, a lovely fireplace, built-in shelving, French door leading to back covered patio, and a pool-sized fully enclosed backyard with an original outdoor brick fireplace on a 7,000 sq ft lot.
Home has been in the same family for many years, has been seismically retrofitted, has an automatic sprinkler system, and was fumigated in 2013. There is no Homeowners Association or Mello-roos, plus it’s perfect for commuters, and within walking distance to shopping and restaurants at the Riverside Plaza, as well as a short drive to the famous Mission Inn Hotel & Spa and other amenities in downtown Riverside.
