This suave midcentury modern home in Long Beach was built in 1956 and appears to have been kept in excellent condition in the years since.
The 1,911-square-foot home has three bedrooms and two bathrooms, with hardwood floors, built-in shelving, beamed ceilings, multiple fireplaces, and walls of glass. The wood-paneled family room is fronted by a brick wall with a fireplace and pockets of shelving. It leads into a vintage kitchen with oak cabinetry, a double oven, and a built-in breakfast nook.
The home sits on a roomy 9,888-square-foot lot in the city’s quiet La Marina Estates neighborhood. Fronted by a neatly landscaped front yard, the house has a long driveway and an attached two-car garage. In the back is a large, pergola-shaded dining patio, a couple other seating areas, a hot tub, and brick planters throughout the yard.
On the market for the first time since its construction, the home is asking $939,000.
