The Lakewood Rancho Estates in Long Beach, California, was designed by architects Cliff May and Chris Choate in the 1950s for developer Ross Cortese. The historic, 700-house tract is characterized by May’s casual, ranch-style homes, a style he popularized throughout Southern California. Now, one of his prized designs is on the market.
As part of a recent renovation, the 1954 residence was expanded into two levels and now features nearly 2,300 square feet of interior space. The flexible floor plan merges three separate living areas which prioritize intimate indoor/outdoor connections by offering direct access to either private patios or the backyard garden.
Steps away from one of the main living spaces is the minimalist kitchen, complete with an anchoring quartz-capped island and top-of-the-line appliances. A large, well organized laundry area adjacent to the kitchen offers an additional sink and more counter space.
In total, the home features three bedrooms, two which are primary suites located at opposite ends on the ground level. Additionally, there are three-and-a-half baths, each renovated with sleek, modern finishes. The upper level includes a lofted living/sleeping area as well as a kitchenette, bedroom, full bath, and balcony. Scroll ahead to see more of the residence, currently available for $1,495,000.
