A beautiful lawn and porch welcome you to this classic 1922 bungalow in the Rose Park Historic District. Dark wood floors, freshly painted walls, and lots of windows create a bright, open space in the living room, which flows into the dining room. Vintage sconces and a cast iron stove provide a vintage ambiance for dining. The galley kitchen features original cabinets in a crisp white, and a lovely sitting area beneath the bright bay window that invites you to sit and enjoy the sunshine.
At the front of the home, just off the living room, two rooms overlook the front yard. Built-in cabinets and spacious closets make these perfect for bedrooms and office space alike. The hallway bathroom with its clawfoot tub is an amazing spa retreat, with natural light from a skylight and the detailed frosted window. Two additional bedrooms lie at the rear of the house. The master bedroom is generously sized and connects to the master bathroom, where you’ll find another elegant clawfoot tub, honeycomb tile, and a pedestal sink.
The exterior spaces include a wraparound patio area, with abundant shade and space for entertaining as well as a grassy area flanked by beautiful mature trees. Situated in one of Long Beach’s hippest historic areas, this home is convenient to independent shops, restaurants, coffee houses and the beach.
