Craftsman Bungalow Relocation
Eight dilapidated Craftsman bungalows are currently in the process of being renovated in downtown Riverside. A local developer bought the houses for $1.00 each from the city and moved them to a former railroad spur between Orange and Lime Streets. Originally part of the Twogood Grove Tract, named after an early Riverside resident & developer, these bungalows were built from 1900-1912.
We drove out to see these homes this weekend. It's an interesting set-up.......a brand new street, named Twogood Lane, with 8 old homes (most still dilapidated) that will have all new inner workings, ie. plumbing, electrical wiring while keeping the original Craftsman design with its distintive woodwork. The prices are in line with the area. I wouldn't mind living in one of these!
