Riverside Terrace Brick Bungalow

This two-story brick bungalow was built in 1941. In the late 1950s, the Herndon family purchased the property. As their family grew, the Herndons expanded the footprint of the home, enclosing a small porch and adding a TV room behind the kitchen and garage. In 2016, Mrs. Herndon succeeded her husband in death, and the house remained uninhabited until the children sold it to us in 2019.
