Description

Truly a rare historic gem! This exceptional Arts & Crafts historic mansion is not only a local landmark, but is recognized on the National Historic Registry. It was custom built for William A. Childs and designed by Puget Miller, it is the last remnant of the 200 acre Monte Vista Nursery (very similar to the Greene and Greene Gamble house in Pasadena). It is distinguished for its architecture integrity and its embodiment of the Arts & Crafts movement. This home has been meticulously preserved and renovated while keeping the style and historic nature of the home intact. The original oak and maple hardwood floors stretch throughout the home, charming redwood paneling and molding make the rooms feel cozy. There is a Great Room with a lovely fireplace and original dumbwaiter. Two master bedrooms (one upstairs and one downstairs) make this home perfect for multigenerational living. The additional downstairs bedroom with its own private bathroom is perfect for guests. Renovations include a new kitchen and breakfast nook with custom cabinets and island, caesarstone countertops, Viking stove, Stainless steel appliances, reproduction era tile, apron sink, and so much more!!! Home has been completely rewired with updated electrical. The upstairs master suite offers breath-taking views of UCR and the Box Spring Mountains from the large wall to wall picture windows. The master bath has been remodeled keeping the character of the home in mind while still providing modern amenities: walk-in shower with multiple jets and large walk-in closet with built-ins. The original Grand underground carriage entrance is now a 2000+ sq ft unfinished basement (not included in sq ft) which could be converted into a wine cellar, and the perfect workshop or "man-cave. The exquisite grounds provide incredible privacy and include mature landscaping with 100 year old trees, fruit trees, and beautiful cacti garden, all on one acre of property in the exclusive Canyon Crest area. Home qualifies under the Mills Act, a HUGE Tax Savings opportunity. This is one of the finest historical estates in all of Riverside! It was even featured on Season 1, Episode 3 of the TV show "Restored" with Brett Waterman as an example of how to remodel with modern amenities while keeping the style and integrity of the period intact. Rare opportunity that a property of this caliber comes on the market! Dont miss this rare chance to own a part of Riversides history--Call today to schedule your private showing!
