Long Beach house description

Our house is a “California Rancho” designed by noted local architect Cliff May. The property is filled with sunshine and is completely enclosed for privacy and has patios in front and in back. Constructed for easy living, it boasts many original architectural elements: an open floor plan, exposed post and beam ceilings, clerestory windows, and floor-to-ceiling glass walls. It will comfortably accommodate families on holiday, visiting grandparents, or business travelers. The property contains many fruit trees, ripening November through April, which provide the freshest-possible breakfast fare. The neighborhood is quiet – except for the birdlife – and is located a short walk from El Dorado county park with walking and bike trails, tennis courts, golf course, children’s playground, nature center and skateboard park. Diverse shopping opportunities lie about 0.5 Mile away.

The galley kitchen is fully-equipped to meet culinary wants, and a charcoal grill sits on the larger patio. You have your choice of eating areas from the formal and elegant maple dining table which can seat ten, to the wrought iron & glass-topped patio table or small café-type table with umbrella. The living room is comfortably furnished and holds a large library available for your enjoyment. Each bedroom offers a queen-sized bed and large closet space. A small den area is open to the second bedroom. If extra sleeping arrangements are needed there is a sturdy folding bed and an air mattress stashed in the closet.

The house is situated minutes from the 605 and 405 freeways giving easy access to all southern California attractions – Disneyland, Knott’s Berry Farm, Queen Mary, ferry to Catalina Island, beaches and so much more….The Blue Line which runs between Long Beach and Los Angeles is a short drive from the house. The bus stop for downtown Long Beach is located 4 blocks away.

Our home is a comfortable place to enjoy breakfast coffee on the patio or to return to for a Bar-B-Q after an active day in Los Angeles and Orange counties.

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2009

          Why the Owner Chose Long Beach:
          This property has been in the extended family for a number of years and is the place where we have met through the years to celebrate holidays, catch-up, unwind, and play. My sister and I decided to purchase the property last year when it became available so our families could continue enjoying Long Beach.

          The Unique Benefits at this House:
          Our kids delight in picking fruit and then eating it for lunch. We love the quiet of the enclosed yard and knowing they can't run into the street is comforting. Sitting around with morning coffee and tea on the patio listening to the birds is special! Even on chilly days (mid-60s for the area) we'll sit at the table and enjoy the light entering the house from all the windows.
