Business in Front, Party in Back (really)

If you love architectural homes and operate within a budget, there are few things more satisfying than walking up to a plain looking house and finding something interesting inside. The glass on the back and the fireplace brick wall make this house something special. I know we often feature the super-duper-awesome houses, but the reality is that homes like this are the middle ground most buyers are looking for. It’s not cheap by any means, but it’s reasonably-priced and located in great Southeast Long Beach neighborhood of College Estates. This one just needs a little bit of help to reach its potential. And I almost forget…the backyard is definitely party-ready. 

Get inside and see for yourself. Call today.
