Nestled within the heart of the highly sought after neighborhood of Park Estates lies The Alexander House, an unparalleled luxurious mid-century masterpiece. Crafted by the illustrious John Lautner, FAIA in 1951, this historic ranch-style abode marries organic design with modern luxury. Stretched over an expansive 13,400+ sq. ft. of lush landscape, echoes Lautner's signature: innovation, natural materials, and a seamless blend of indoor-outdoor living. A tastefully secluded façade beckons you in, revealing an intimate shade garden and inviting glass wall near the front entrance. As you step inside, the opulence of vaulted, beamed ceilings, authentic brick and concrete floors, and bespoke built-ins captures your gaze. The grandeur of its interiors, illuminated by cascades of natural light through floor-to-ceiling windows, renders an authentic mid-century ambiance. The spacious living area draws your sight to embrace the indoor-outdoor experience, a hallmark of Lautner's inspiration from his mentorship underneath Frank Lloyd Wright. An open floor concept unfurls—revealing a kitchen fit for a gourmet, a dining haven, and a den—all framing picturesque outdoor vistas. Slide open the glass doors and find yourself amidst a Californian paradise. Sheltered by a vast overhang, the patio sets the stage for sun-soaked afternoons and evening soirées. Where sketches once hinted at a pool, now lies an architectural marvel—an infinity edge saline pool with a lanai deck, echoing the opulence of a five-star resort. This unique marvel offers four lavish bedrooms, four extensively renovated bathrooms all with premium finishes. The warm and welcoming living room is crowned by a towering brick fireplace, and over looks the state-of-the-art chef’s kitchen outfitted with Thermador, Miele and AGA appliances. While modernity has woven its touch, the essence of Lautner’s vision remains untouched. A rarity in Long Beach, CA, this is the only known Lautner masterpiece in Park Estates, a neighborhood renowned for its sprawling lots and custom homes. The Alexander House isn't just an emblem of luxury; it's a nod to history. Recognized with the esteemed Mills Act status, this property isn't only a visual treat but also offers the allure of substantial tax savings due to its historic significance. Embrace an unparalleled blend of history, luxury, and savings at The Alexander House. With too many upgrades to mention, inquire for a complete list of upgrades and specifics. Indulgence awaits.
