Hawarden Hills, under $500k

You don't often see a Hawarden Hills home for under $500k. This is the best area in Riverside. Most of the homes are large and many of them are mini castles. In Riverside, this is where the real rich folk live.

2114 Westminster Dr is in the older section of the hills. It's still a very nice area but the homes are smaller than those farther up the hill. This particular home was built way back in '65. It says it got a complete remodel in 2006. The house is 3200 sq/ft with 3 bedrooms and 2.5 baths siting on over 3/4 of an acre. The biggest drawback about this home is it has no garage, only a carport. Makes me think that at at some point the garage was converted to living space. Purchased in 2006 for $725k and then remodeled, the owner is into this home for a chunk of change. I imagine this was attempt at a remodel and flip. Bad timing though. It listed way back in May for $789k. After several price reductions it's now sitting at $449k. This could be a short sale, although it does not indicate this in the listing. If you want to live in Hawarden hills this might be worth looking at.

Yep, I'm one of the people looking to buy in the nicest neighborhood in Riverside. We've looked at this house three times now. It is a short sale. It looked beautiful about two months ago, but the grass is now completely dead and the backyard is all dirt (except for the pool and some trees). But, it has some nice upgrades and I would love to get into this neighborhood.

I thought it might be a shorty at that price.
