This Long Beach residence was built in 1954 but has been updated considerably since then. Per the listing, the three-bedroom home in Los Altos was “completely reimagined” by Los Angeles architect Paul Coleman in 2008.

The 1,900-square-foot house now includes desirable modern features, such as energy efficient and soundproof windows, built-in speakers, remote control lighting, and a new alarm system. The kitchen has been outfitted with quartz countertops and stainless steel appliances, while the master bathroom boasts a new steam shower and separate bathtub.

But elements of its midcentury roots are certainly still visible in the floor-to-ceiling windows, white brick fireplaces, and multiple outdoor access points.

The backyard includes an outdoor seating area shaded by a space age-style pergola and a fire pit, while a separate outdoor area is highlighted by a small koi pond. The 5,853-square-foot lot also includes a two-car garage and a detached studio structure.
