Here’s your opportunity to buy a beautiful 1919 Craftsman bungalow in the Rose Park Historic District! The front yard has drought tolerant landscaping that helps complement the traditional Craftsman-style front porch. The living room has white baseboards, crown molding, and has ample natural light plus recessed lighting. Traditional columns and built-ins delineate the entrance to the large dining room, which has ample space for both a dining room table and a buffet or hutch. Hardwood floors, period lighting, and Craftsman style stained glass windows provide the vintage charm you’re looking for.
One of the three bedrooms is situated off the living room and includes a walk-in closet. The two back bedrooms are similarly sized and also have generous closets - especially for an old home. The bathroom has a sunken combination shower and whirlpool tub with a tile mural as well as a large vanity with storage.
The kitchen is a nice blend of modern and traditional with two-tone cabinets and ample storage. There is plenty of space for multiple people to cook at once, and there is also room for a large kitchen table. One entire wall is all pantry storage space. Just off the kitchen is a very convenient storage room with laundry and more space for storing cleaning supplies, pet supplies, or anything else you don’t want in the main house. If you need extra space for crafts or sewing, you’ve found it here!
The back yard is truly the epitome of outdoor entertainment space. There is a lovely pergola and enough space for a sitting area under that, in addition to an outdoor dining area and a barbeque. New Trex decking and concrete areas mean very little maintenance so you can spend your time outside simply relaxing. On the side of the home is a large space perfect for more outdoor storage or a doggie run. Finally, there is extra, separate parking in the backyard with a sliding gate to access it from the alley.
In addition to the historic charm, this bungalow offers updated electrical, copper plumbing and central heat and air conditioning. The Rose Park neighborhood is extremely walkable and convenient to a number of businesses and restaurants including 4th Street Retro Row. It’s also a straight shot and less than 1.5 miles to 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.
