773 Orizaba Ave., Long Beach CA
Don’t miss this rare opportunity to own two beautiful homes across from Rose Park, the charming park that is the namesake for this thriving historic district. Subtle Japanese and Swiss influences along with classic Craftsman styling add to the curb appeal and elegance of the main home, an iconic airplane bungalow built in 1914. Take a seat, relax, and enjoy the view from your wrap-around porch or head inside where you’ll find a color palate lifted from nature, with warm yellows, rich browns, and mossy greens. Throughout the main home, you’ll find thoughtful Craftsman details like original crown molding, gleaming hardwood floors, and beautiful built-in cabinetry. The abundant casement and double-hung windows provide tons of natural light and cool ocean breezes. Downstairs, you’ll find a large living room, formal dining room, bedroom, full bathroom with laundry hookups, and a large kitchen with plenty of counter space and colorful tilework. Upstairs, you’ll feel like you’re in a tree house with two airy bedrooms and a half bathroom. There are two single car garages, a storage shed, a workshop, and four off-street parking spaces between the main house and the second unit, a detached one bedroom, one bathroom home. If you live in the front unit, you could use the rental income from the second home to help pay your mortgage or use for extended family living. The second unit has a wood burning fireplace, full kitchen, dining room, and glass sliders to a shady back yard. The unit also has its own laundry room located next to the workshop. This house is located just blocks away from 4th Street’s Retro Row, with shops, restaurants, coffee houses, and wine bars and the beach is just 8 blocks away! Park your car and stroll or bike to everything you need.
