Rich in stylish 1930s character with the sophistication of present-day luxury carefully interwoven throughout, this elegant custom residence showcases the talents of renowned architect Kenneth Wing in Long Beach’s historic and prestigious Bixby Knolls enclave. Crafted in 1936, the home is graced with curb appeal that is enhanced by a coveted corner site with mature landscaping and custom hardscaping that complements its setting along one of the neighborhood’s romantic tree-lined streets. A curving staircase and shimmering chandelier make an appropriately grand first impression in the residence, which spans approximately 5,287 square feet and features seven bedrooms and five- and one-half baths. Personal luxury awaits in an opulent primary suite that hosts a sitting area, separate vanities, a soaking tub, separate shower and exquisite marble and tile surrounds. Details are rich, including hardwood flooring, original tile, crown molding, classic judges paneling, coved ceilings and handsome built-ins. Warmed by original wood-burning fireplaces, the living and family rooms are accessed directly from the foyer and provide ideal settings for memorable gatherings with friends and loved ones. Thoroughly upgraded, the chef-caliber kitchen reveals bespoke counters and cabinetry, an island, nook, farmhouse sink, full subway-tile backsplash, and high-end appliances including a built-in Sub-Zero refrigerator and a pro-level JennAir range. Both the formal and casual dining rooms overlook the recently redesigned backyard, where privacy and beauty are virtually unequaled. Primed for sublime entertaining, the outdoor living area showcase more than $300,000 in upgrades, including a resort pool and infinity spa, spacious patios, a verdant lawn, and a covered entertainment pavilion with a linear gas fireplace, built-in heaters, extensive stonework and a built-in TV. Grounds measure nearly .31 acres and are home to an oversized three-car garage, and a guest house with more than 400 square feet, a separate entrance, full kitchen and a full bath. The estate’s desirable location allows easy car-free exploration of popular restaurants, shops and local breweries. Whole Foods, Trader Joe’s, a local farmer’s market, and the vibrant LBX Exchange are within easy reach, and summer concerts can be enjoyed at Los Cerritos Park. The sands of Long Beach, Seal Beach and Sunset Beach are about 15 minutes away, and Downtown LA’s Arts District is only 14 miles from Bixby Knolls.
