The family home of Bruce Brown, director of the seminal 1966 surf movie The Endless Summer, just hit the market in Long Beach, California. The midcentury home was designed in 1959 by Palmer Power and Delma Daniel, and it's located on Treasure Island—a triangular subdivision in the city's Naples neighborhood.
The seaside home was recently renovated and reenvisioned by Modern Design Builders Inc. and S.Y. Park. The design team took care to respect the home's architectural history and charm while drawing inspiration from the "surf and beach culture of Long Beach's past."
The renovation updated the home inside and out. The design team modernized the facade, added glass sliding doors, and installed beautiful Brazilian teak hardwood floors throughout. They also added over 500 square feet of living space—the home now totals 2,533 square feet.
One highlight of the renovation is a 350-square-foot loft on the second floor with a 28-foot-long balcony that showcasing amazing views of the Naples Canal and Alamitos Bay. Now, 44 Palermo is looking for a new owner.
