9 Miltiades came up for sale yesterday asking $2.850 million and I’ll be curious to see how it fares. Its builder paid $695,000 for the original house back in October, ’09, so he’s definitely looking for a home run here. Maybe. The lot backs up to the railroad tracks, never a popular option despite its convenience to transportation and it’s definitely a FAR Baby, meaning the roof’s been chopped off to eliminate an attic and cram more living space in the two floors (and the subterranean “lower level”) below.
But, including that basement, it’s got six bedrooms, two laundry units, one on the second floor, the second in the basement and I’m sure a kitchen with all the latest whiz-bang appliances. Not at all my cup of tea but I’m not the one in the market for a new house in Riverside. So maybe it will fetch a handsome price; the way things are going in Riverside these days, I wouldn’t be awfully surprised if it did.
