Old meets new in this grand original Riverside home built in 1880 by the Swift family, proprietors of The Swift Bros. Brick Yard / Swift Brick Works. Previously known by locals as the “Mayor’s House”, this home has gone through a meticulously thought-out and extensive remodel over the last several years in order to save an important piece of Riverside history. Many old charm aspects have been restored including the scroll details on the numerous porches, the old doors with porcelain knobs, some detailed original trim, transom windows, thick paneled doorways, & original brickwork. Unique details pop up around every corner seamlessly blending the new & the old. The ceilings were opened back up to their original height allowing for a more light & airy living room which showcases the original chimney & carved open staircase. A spacious new kitchen features butcher block countertops, great cabinet storage, & seating at the center island. Nice formal dining room space great for entertaining. Option for a main level bedroom or beautiful office with a built-in window seat. New main level bathroom with a walk-in shower. The second story features two balconies, three spacious bedrooms, & a conveniently located laundry room. New upstairs bathroom with a soaking tub & a striking exposed brick accent wall. All of the mechanicals have been replaced including all new plumbing & electrical. Rooms are equipped with efficient mini-split systems. Saved from being turned into a pile of forgotten brick after years of uninhabited neglect, hiding behind vines and overgrown brush, this home has transformed from an almost complete tear down back into the exceptional beauty she once was. Do not miss your chance to own this wonderful historic brick home – an iconic piece of Riverside history!
