The Virginia Country Club neighborhood of Long Beach, adjacent to the Los Cerritos neighborhood, is one of Long Beach’s best kept secrets.

This charming neighborhood features beautiful, stately homes on large lots – some of which you may even recognize from cinema, as well as very social neighbors and one of the best private golf courses in the city.

Let’s Talk Homes

The Virginia Country Club area has about 700 homes, which date back to as early as the 1920s. These are large, beautiful homes with styles that include Craftsman, Tudor, and Mediterranean. The lot size follows suit, consisting of some of the largest in the city. On the south end of the neighborhood, in Los Cerritos, homes sit on lot sizes that average about 6,000 square feet, while the lots on the northern end can be 12,000 square feet and up.

Because of this neighborhood’s historic, estate-sized homes and All-American atmosphere, the Virginia County Club neighborhood has long served the LA film industry. Some of the most well-known films that this area has been featured in include Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, American Pie 1 and 2, and Donnie Darko, as well as other smaller films and various commercials.

The Virginia Country Club, for which the neighborhood gets its name, sits at the northernmost end of the area. Founded in 1909, this club has a reputation for being one of the best in the area for both golf and special events. The number of members is limited to 415, making it one of the most exclusive country clubs in all of Southern California. Guest Cards are available, just make sure to read the rules before you visit, as these rules are part of the Club’s 100-year old tradition and work to uphold the legacy.

In the mid 1800s, this house was once the center of one of the area’s largest ranches. Now, this National Historic Landmark is one of the few two-story adobes remaining in California. Rancho Los Cerritos now operates as a free public museum open five days a week.
