Nothing says ‘home’ quite like a mid-century ranch house, and this lovely rambler in a desirable Long Beach neighborhood is par exemplar of that standard. The home has been refreshed throughout – new interior paint, freshly painted kitchen cabinets, new floor coverings, new light fixtures, and a smartly renovated hall bathroom have made for move-in ready conditions. The formal floor plan allows for distinct areas for lounging and entertaining, including an extended living room with wood-burning fireplace, well-equipped galley kitchen with TONS of cabinet storage space, and a massive dining/family room addition that can host the largest of gatherings. All 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, including master en suite, are found at the opposite side of the home off of the main hallway. The oversized, irregular lot boasts over 8,000 sqft of space, including a front entry courtyard behind box hedges, an elevated entertaining patio between family and master rooms in the rear, and an expansive private yard beyond, including a mature and fruit-bearing avocado tree, and wrapping around to a breakfast patio off of the kitchen. Supremely central in access to all Long Beach has to offer, within a desirable school district, and located conveniently near several retail hubs, this house is one that shouldn’t be missed!
