This historic gem awaits you in the charming Wrigley neighborhood of Long Beach! This gorgeous Spanish home, built in 1928, is full of charming curb appeal with its gated courtyard, porte cochere, red-tiled roof and front steps leading to the turret entry! It has been maintained and preserved to showcase most of its original architectural features, both inside and out, and it does not disappoint! Once inside the entryway, you will notice unique details such as a coat alcove and a built-in umbrella stand! Hardwood floors extend throughout the home, but in the formal living room there are gorgeous dark wood inlays outlining the perimeter and the fireplace. The front room is grand with its barrel vaulted ceiling, arched picture window, working sconce lights, large wood-burning fireplace and mantle, restored casement windows and handsome built in cabinets. The vintage kitchen has its original pink and green hexagonal tiled counters, marble pastry counter, and antique Magic Chef stove. The breakfast nook is inviting with stunning natural light from the bay windows and perfect matching built-ins are ready to display your favorite dishes. The home has 3 full sized bedrooms, each with walk-in closets, coved ceilings and picture rails. The main bathroom is breathtaking with coveted lavender/green/black color scheme, full built-in vanity, vintage etched mirrors and art deco light fixtures; another 3/4 bath with yellow and blue tile and petite corner sink lies off the primary bedroom and is accessible from the kitchen. More mahogany built-ins adorn the hall including a secretary/writing desk, linen cupboard and an antique phone stand complete with antique phone and pull-out seat! The primary bedroom has not only a walk-in closet with built-in drawers but an antique etched mirror dressing closet. It is believed that this home was a model home of the time because of the size and countless details. A 3 bed 1 3/4 bath home of 1500+ sf, and the only home on the block for many decades, this property originally included most of the land on the west side of San Francisco Avenue. The long driveway would have led to workshop areas and stables. Now there is a sizable garage with workbench shelving and extra storage plus a large studio accessible from the spacious backyard. This is a very special home and property and now you have the rare opportunity to own a nearly original Spanish Colonial Revival home and a remarkable piece of Long Beach history!
