Just about to hit the MLS, feast your eyes upon Edward Killingsworth's 1957 Opdahl Residence in Long Beach. The two-bedroom, one-and-a-half bath has been extensively restored by its current owner and is now an historic landmark by the City of Long Beach. According to the listing, the house features "two 18 ft. tall redwood walls at the setback lines on both sides of the property" in order to create an "oasis of privacy for the glass walled structure, reflecting pond and peaceful gardens within." You want more pedigree? The house also won a boatload of awards when it was first constructed, including First Honor AIA Southern California Chapter in 1957, Architectural Record Award of Excellence 1958, AIA Sunset Magazine Western Homes Honor Award 1959, and AIA National Honor Award 1960. It was also prominently featured in Dwell post-renovation a few years ago. Asking price: $799,000.
