Pack Up the U-Haul, You’re Moving to Long Beach!

Seriously, no matter where you live right now, this house is probably worth it. Many times the larger homes (and any home built in 1960 with 3500 square feet was HUGE) just feel big and ponderous — like someone told their architect how much square footage they wanted and then they designed the house, not the other way around. This home is big and bold, but it never feels like too much. Admittedly, for the price tag I would expect a pool and some other work on the inside done (I think the kitchen could be refreshed — nobody looks good under fluorescent lights. ) — that’s just my opinion, of course. But that originality works both ways. And the other side of kitchen fluorescent light is the absolutely amazing “garden” master bath with step down shower and the original stonework on the fireplaces.
