A Vintage Wrigley Gem

2226 Golden Avenue, Long Beach CA 90806

This charming traditional home in Wrigley offers special original features throughout. The brick walkway and vine-framed brick front porch leads to a large living room with original hardwood floors, tray ceilings, a traditional fireplace, and a large bay window that fills the room with sunlight. Tray ceilings and hardwood floors continue into the formal dining room, which makes an elegant impression with its spaciousness and vintage crystal chandelier. The updated kitchen features clean white cabinets, colored concrete counters, stainless steel appliances, and a white subway tile backsplash, bringing a bit of vintage feeling into the modern space. Just off the kitchen is a versatile breakfast room. With a built-in corner cabinet and additional built-in storage and desk space, this is a great space for beginning the day with a cup of coffee or tackling homework or bills. Also off the kitchen is a laundry room, with access to the driveway and garage, as well as a secondary bathroom.
The three spacious bedrooms off the home’s central hallway all have hardwood floors and ample storage. White beadboard wainscoting, heated tiled floors and a pedestal sink lend a vintage feeling to the oversized hall bathroom while a separate tub and shower make it a super functional retreat. The intimate back yard offers a covered patio adjacent to the two-car garage and another patio overlooking the lawn and fruit trees. A long gated driveway along the house offers additional parking, storage, and privacy.
The Wrigley neighborhood provides easy access to the nearby L.A. River Bike Trail, multiple freeways, and the Metro Rail. It’s a quick bike ride or drive to downtown Long Beach or Bixby Knolls, providing great access to the best shopping, restaurants, and local attractions that Long Beach has to offer.
