SOLD! Before even crossing the threshold of this one-of-a-kind Rose Park South Craftsman bungalow, you’ll be gently enveloped in the bamboo-shaded softscape and charmed instantly by the 100-plus years of heartwarming history of the four families who have called it home. Built in 1911, this home has been lovingly cared for and retains its original vintage architecture and accents in the main living areas combined with an award-winning luxe renovation, including a master bath imbued with the soft cadence of a custom fountain, a full-size Finnish sauna, an extra-deep jetted tub, heated stone floors, and a walk-in multi-head shower; a large master bedroom with a gas fireplace and two walk-in closets; and an enormous upstairs great room with kitchenette, a gas fireplace, vaulted beamed ceiling, wiring for sound, and a half bath with an Alice in Wonderland secret-bookcase door to the attic.
Additional modern amenities include a full-house water filtration system, a tankless water heater, internet wiring throughout, and a 50-year steel roof. There’s tons of storage and a very long Italian-style stamped concrete driveway leading to a two-car garage.
Filled with the positive, spiritual energy of its past owners and special guests, combined with its multi-functional living spaces, this spacious sanctuary in one of Long Beach’s most iconic neighborhoods would work well for a growing family, a bed and breakfast, or a yoga retreat or teacher training center.
Boasting a walk score of 83/100, this enchanting home is close to a wide array of restaurants and boutiques, including those along 4th Street’s renowned Retro Row. Will you be the lucky fifth owner to make 21st century history or start a new legacy in this home?
