Description

The ?Robert Bettner Estate? is a beautiful late 19th Century English cottage-style home that reflects the historic elegance of Magnolia Ave. It was built in 1892 by prominent real estate investor and sportsman Robert Better and his English-born wife. Better?s mother had recently completed her nearby home, now Riverside?s ?Heritage House.? The founder of the Riverside Polo Club called his home ?La Ventanilla? (house of small windows). The estate is designated Cultural Landmark 59 by the city of Riverside. Entering the 1 acre property is a step back in time with the traditional gardens and mature landscaping. Opening the paneled doors flanked by traditional English Georgian-style windows, one is surrounded by elegant architecture. Wood floors and paneled walls are magnificent. Sliding pocket doors can separate the Great Hall, Music Room and formal Dining Room for more intimate settings. Four fireplaces feature fine tiles and mantles. Bays in all the formal rooms offer window seating. There are two large pantries. The butler?s pantry includes built in china cabinets and wine rack. The detached Carriage House provides ample room for vehicles and storage and includes the original horse stalls used for participating at the nearby Polo Grounds in the 1890s. The home includes all the existing Furniture, Art Collections, Rugs, Books, Window coverings, Grandfather Clock and a vintage Knabe art case player full size grand piano. SEE THE VIRTUAL TOUR!!!!
