732 E. 3rd St., Long Beach CA 90802
Here’s your opportunity to own a piece of Long Beach history in the heart of the vibrant East Village Arts District. Originally built in 1896, this beautiful Dutch Colonial Victorian home was moved to its current location in 1912. It offers an elegant mixture of vintage charm married with tasteful modern updates throughout.
Rich Brazilian mahogany floors and abundant windows create a warm, welcoming feeling in the spacious living room and that carries into the formal dining room. The tastefully updated kitchen boasts white cabinets, Carrera marble countertops, a farmhouse sink, subway tile backsplash, and stainless steel appliances. With double windows, recessed lights, and under-counter lighting, this kitchen is a cook’s dream. Adding to the functionality of this kitchen is a pass-through window to the dining room.
The first floor has two bedrooms, a stunning bathroom with a hexagonal tile floor and a clawfoot tub, and a separate laundry room with a marble folding counter and plenty of additional storage. On the second floor, you’ll find two additional bedrooms and a luxurious, spa-like bathroom with a glass walk-in shower and double sinks. Also on the second floor, you’ll find a spacious family room with an electric fireplace, making it a cozy spot to enjoy cool evenings. A separate home office retreat is the perfect spot to work from home, or just enjoy stargazing through the amazing skylights. At one time, this historical property functioned as two units and the large upstairs could be reconfigured into mother-in-law quarters or a multi-room master suite.
While this home is within steps of fabulous restaurants, hip night spots, and shopping, when you step out your back door, you’ll feel like all those urban opportunities are a world away. The enchanting backyard sanctuary provides the perfect spot for entertaining or escaping from the stress of a busy day.
Additional features include central heating, ceiling fans, updated plumbing and electrical systems and more. Homes that blend the living space, updates and historical features this home offers are rarely available on the market, particularly in the hot East Village Arts District. Don’t miss out on this one!
