8561 Hickory Ln., Riverside
[ SOLD for $382,500 on 11/28/2017 ] We dare you to find such a well-maintained and highly upgraded home as this, in this highly affordable price range! Built in 1954, with over 1400 sq ft, this custom home has 3 bedrooms (a wall was removed from 4th bedroom to increase one bedroom size — could easily be reverted back to 4 bedrooms), 1.75 bathrooms, living room with fireplace and hardwood floors, formal dining area, and gorgeous landscaped yard.
The hardwood floors were refinished beautifully by a local hardwood floor craftsman. Not even 2 years ago, all new custom double pane windows were installed with a design feature that allows you to clean windows by folding them inward without having to remove screens. Recessed lighting in living room, kitchen, and hallway. Gas and wood-burning fireplace in living room and the 75″ Sony smart TV and sound bar, which are less than a year old, are included with the house at no extra cost! All appliances are included too, as well as the washer/dryer.
The kitchen is light and bright and a delight, with dishwasher, gas stove, counter top microwave, recessed lighting, space for breakfast table and chairs, and a walk-in pantry! Dining area just outside the kitchen overlooking the living room and fireplace. Think about the family gatherings during holidays. Warm and inviting…
The master bathroom was tastefully remodeled less than a year ago with all new plumbing. The hallway bathroom is vintage, but so well-maintained and clean that you would think it was brand new; this bathroom also has new plumbing. Laundry room is just outside the kitchen (washer/dryer are included), and the water heater is only about 5 years old.
Lot size is 9,148 sq ft (.21/acre) and the whole yard has been extensively landscaped, with mow curbing, vinyl picket fencing, custom wrought iron driveway gate and front door, as well as pavers, sprinklers, and motion lights. The patio cover (ideal for entertaining) attached to garage was installed in 2015, complete with new wiring and lights. The 2-car garage boasts an automatic roll up door and lots of gated parking. This beautifully landscaped yard includes Chinese pistachio, naval orange, and gala apple trees, as well as shade trees. The roof and hot water heater are only 5 years old!!!
Walking distance to Cal Baptist University and elementary school, and convenient location for commuters too. This home has been lovingly updated over the past few years, and is not a flip. The homeowners take much pride in their home and private space, which is reflected as soon as you pull up to the curb and walk through the front door. This fine gem will sell quickly, so don’t hesitate!
