Are you looking for an unrivaled, custom historic home with fabulous views and meticulous period features? The Hays-Patee home is just waiting for you. In 1903 noted architect Frank Burnham (Riverside County Courthouse) was commissioned by Tom Hays. This stately craftsman has views over both the Santa Ana River and the City of Riverside. The arched and pillared front veranda is built of locally sourced white marble granite. Inside, the open floor plan and beam ceilings create a living space with a flow that was designed with entertaining in mind. The living room with the stone and clinker brick fireplace is a focal point, with natural hardwood floors, custom wainscoting, continuous plate rails, and iconic egg and dart molding throughout. The music room off the living room has original wall sconces and ceiling light fixtures too. The formal dining room has a custom built-in china cabinet and views facing the Santa Ana River and Mount Baldy. The kitchen, redesigned as part of a Riverside Art Alliance “Designer” Showcase, has updated cabinetry, custom tile, and a built-in refrigerator. The large circular bedroom downstairs was likely the original primary bedroom. It is currently being used as an office. This house has historic roof tiles imported from Italy. The second floor’s spacious primary bedroom runs the entire width of the home from front to back. Leaded glass windows offer views and fresh breezes from both sides of this room. It also has its own ductless mini-split HVAC unit. The walk-in closet is amazing in its sheer size! There are 2 additional bedrooms and 2 bathrooms upstairs as well. The oversize three-car garage features a two-story apartment on the backside of the building. The grounds of the home conform to the mountainside with boulders, fountains, grassy knolls, and trees melding together to create a private retreat. The west side of the home contains a 2nd driveway and a large parking area for RV storage.
