Property description

The 'pied-a-terre' (French for a 'flat') is located above the owner's Spanish Colonial house with a separate entrance off the street.

Upon entering the apartment, you're greeted with a bright open floor plan. The many windows and French doors provide breeziness throughout. Or, use the A/C on warmer days.

The hallway leading to the cozy bedroom offers privacy from the living room. A well-equipped kitchenette with its granite counter top is ideal for preparing a quick meal. If dining out is on the agenda, there are eateries of various cuisines and budgets just a block away. Or, on a warm sunny day, have a BBQ in the patio below.

We welcome corporate renters. Please call 310-968-0334 for details.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1988

About the owner: Al was born in Honolulu and left for the mainland when he was a toddler. He grew up in Long Beach, attended Lakewood High and USC with a strong focus on water sports. Now, he plays bridge and tries to improve on his golfing. Colleen was born in Hong Kong and moved to NYC at age 5. She graduated from the H.S. of Fashion Industries and the Fashion Institute of Technology. Interior design is her forte. She isn't very athletic but will join Al for snow skiing when the conditions are perfect. They both do Argentine tango and ballroom dancing several times a week. Waldo, their 15 year old rescued 'schnoodle' watches over Colleen and keeps strangers at bay with his ferocious bark.

Why the Owner Chose Long Beach:
Colleen fell in love with the Spanish courtyard in this ex-fixer upper. It's now a very comfortable and elegant home after several remodels.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
The house is located in a very walkable neighborhood with a variety of cuisines, shops and amenities on 2nd St. The proximity to Los Angeles and Orange County allows for easy access to work and recreation.
