Long Beach house description

WELCOME to my home!! Whether you are here for business (work, convention center vendor or relocation), family vacation, vacationer from overseas, snow birds, or just wanting to get away, you will be WOWed by this beautifully restored and remodeled Tudor style home in the Wrigley area of Long Beach. It is the perfect location for your visit to Southern California - close to freeways and local attractions.

The home was built in 1929. The hardwood floors throughout instantly create a warm and comforting feeling when you walk in the front door. Historical postcards of Long Beach decorate the walls throughout the house highlighting buildings and places of days done by.

The living room has a comfy leather couch and recliner, a new 32' flat panel TV with a DVD/CD player and FIOS cable including a couple premium movie channels.

In the dining room you'll find an antique table, 6 chairs and a buffet. An additional table and four chairs are provided in the breakfast nook bringing the available seating up to 10 persons.

For your cooking pleasure, the kitchen is loaded with new pots and pans, a Cuisinart convection oven, and microwave; a 1950's O'Keefe & Merritt gas stove and ruby red dish and glassware; eating and cooking utensils, crock pot, blender, cookbooks, bake ware, mixer w/mixing bowls, blender, coffee pot, tea kettle, an under mount 10' TV with radio/CD/DVD player, staple items like oil, a couple types of vinegar, sugar, flour, LOTS of spices, peanut butter, coffee, tea, and more - all the basic items necessary for making your scrumptious meals.

Let yourself go in one of the three tastefully decorated bedrooms, furnished with antique bed sets, complete with new pillow-top mattresses, comforters, pillows, and luxurious sheets.

In the hall closet there is a queen size blowup mattress that sleeps 2 - bringing the total sleeping accommodations up to 8 people. There's also extra pillows, blankets, and games/puzzles/cards.

The striking cobalt blue and white tiled bathroom has two sinks, a HUGE tub/shower, shampoo/conditioner, ample towels, and is supplied with a hair dryer, q-tips, toothpaste and other basic supplies. The shower has a fixed and separate hand held/sliding spray head perfect for smaller children taking showers.

Enjoy the serenity of the backyard with its lovely landscaping while relaxing in one of the six rocking patio chairs. Have a meal or read at the table shaded from the sun by an umbrella. Or you can sip a drink while you fire up the propane barbeque for some grilling. From the one lemon and one ruby red grapefruit tree, squeeze your own delicious fresh juice for drinking or use it in your cooking with the supplied old-fashioned juicer.

There is parking available in the driveway or street. Street sweeping is on Tuesdays and Wednesdays so be sure to check the signs so you don't get a ticket.

Beach towels, one beach sand umbrella and 4 chairs are available for you to use if you're planning a trip to the beach.

Make sure to check out the 'Things to See and Do' notebook in the living room with some of the local places to eat, shop, and activities/attractions in the nearby vicinity.

Day (3-day minimum), week, or monthly rental available with maid service after 7 days (at renter's expense).

With all the comforts of home, great weather most of the year, and plenty of nearby attractions, I wish you a pleasant visit!

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 1995

          Why the Owner Chose Long Beach:
          This home was my personal residence where I raised my 2 grown children and lived until I recently got married. I LOVE my home on this palm-tree lined street and the fact that this area is named after the chewing gum mogul William Wrigley. It brings back great memories of driving past the sweet-smelling Wrigley Chewing Gum factory located in Chicago, Illinois near where I grew up. There are many historic non cookie-cutter homes in the area, all with their own unique characteristics.

          The Unique Benefits at this House:
          You can pick lemons or grapefruits for some fresh-squeezed juice from the backyard while viewing cyclist/joggers/walkers using the bike path located next to the Los Angeles River. Or better yet, you can take a leisurely or brisk walk or jog on the path to get some exercise. If the kids need to burn some energy, take them to the new playground equipment located at the park around the corner. If you're in the mood for peace, simply enjoy a quiet stroll in the neighborhood or breakfast, lunch, or dinner at the table with umbrella and six chairs on the secluded backyard patio. It only takes minutes to get to the 710 and 405 freeways or the beach, Aquarium, or Convention Center downtown. Grocery stores, shopping, restaurants, coffee shops, transportation and more are nearby and local attractions (Disneyland, Hollywood, mountains, etc.) are 30 minutes to an hour away.
