Here’s an exquisite midcentury modern home in eastern Long Beach’s La Marina Estates neighborhood looking for its first new owner since 1958.
That’s the same year the three-bedroom residence was constructed; as the listing notes, it’s been in the same family for its entire 59-year history. Designed by prolific Southern California architect Paul Tay, the home features an open floor plan, skylights and clerestory windows, walls of glass, and vaulted and beamed ceilings.
Very well maintained over the years, the house still includes such era-appropriate details as wood-paneled walls and tile fixtures in both bathrooms. Offering 1,826 square feet of living space, the home is centered around a roomy living area with a brick fireplace and built-ins.
The residence sits on a 7,760-square-foot lot with a landscaped front lawn, a covered patio, a grassy backyard, and a two-car garage.
Asking price is $979,000. Open houses are scheduled for 1 to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
