Located in the sought-after Rose Park Historic District, 925 Dawson Avenue is a charming home that welcomes you with drought-tolerant landscaping and a peaked roof. Step inside to a warm, inviting living room with plenty of space for both a seating area and a sunny home office corner. The living room flows into a light-filled formal dining room. Just beyond that is the kitchen, which has been updated and offers abundant counters and storage, a dishwasher, and a double sink. Adjacent to the kitchen is a laundry room with convenient access to the backyard.
The master bedroom is downstairs. A barn door from the bedroom leads to an elegant spa-like bathroom with an oversized tile and glass shower, and then to a walk-in closet with fabulous built-in storage. Two smaller bedrooms are upstairs and they both feature newer carpet and sizable closets as well. All three bedrooms have their own mini-split heating & cooling units. The second bathroom has also been updated and is centrally located.
Those who love the outdoors will appreciate the backyard, where you’ll find multiple seating areas, including a huge deck. There’s enough outdoor space to plant a garden, add a hot tub, pool, trampoline, or whatever your heart desires - and still have plenty of room. Mature trees line the space, giving the yard a private atmosphere.
A two-car garage with alley access and a long driveway accessed from the street provides plenty of off-street parking, and the paved area inside the gate could be used for boat or RV storage and still have enough room to serve as an additional seating area. If you’ve been dreaming of a lot where you could add an ADU (accessory dwelling unit), this home may be the one for you. It’s also convenient to everything that 4th Street Retro Row has to offer, including shops, restaurants, wine bars, and coffee houses.

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.
