You’ll love living in this inviting Craftsman bungalow just one mile from the beach! Located in historic Rose Park, this three-bedroom, two-bathroom home offers large, open living spaces that artfully blend vintage charm with modern updates. The open front room features original cabinetry and moldings and is bathed in light from the many refurbished double-hung windows. The remodeled kitchen is a chef’s dream with a modern Craftsman aesthetic, equipped with quartz countertops, a farmhouse sink, shaker style cabinets, tile floors, and a Thermador six-burner stove with double ovens (one a convection oven), pot-filler faucet, and griddle. From the kitchen you can step out the French doors to the back patio or sit down to eat in the bright, airy breakfast area. Both bathrooms have built-in storage, one with more modern touches and one retaining some of its original, historic charm. All three bedrooms are ample sized. Outdoors, you’ll find a fenced-off, shaded side yard just off the living room, and a large back yard with a covered seating area and plenty of fruit trees, including avocado, apple, orange, pear, and pomegranate. There's plenty of room for you to add your own touches in the back yard as well. Picture a vegetable garden, a pool, or perhaps an Accessory Dwelling Unit. The property has parking for three cars in addition to the detached garage, which includes built in overhead storage and ample windows, creating an ideal space for your studio or workshop. The location is super walkable, just a short stroll to restaurants, coffeehouses and more on 4th Street Retro Row and a little farther, the beach.

Named one of the country’s best “Old House Neighborhoods” by “This Old House” magazine, the area was named after the circular Rose Park at the junction of 8th Street and Orizaba Avenue. The park was dedicated to the City of Long Beach by the Alamitos Land Company in 1910 and many of the homes were built in the teens through the 1930s. There are two historic districts within the neighborhood and a host of historic Craftsman style homes, along with Spanish Colonial Revival single family and multi-family residences. Bounded on the west and east by St. Louis and Coronado and north and south by 10th Street and 7th Street, Rose Park is characteristic of Long Beach’s older residential neighborhoods. The Rose Park area is walking distance to 4thStreet’s Retro Row, which features many popular eateries along with coffee houses, wine bars, and a restored art theater.
