Here's your chance to own a rare piece of Long Beach History located on the famed Ocean Blvd. strip! The James C. Beer residence is listed as a Long Beach Historical property and serves a terrific example of the grand homes that once lined Ocean Blvd. It is one of the few remaining examples of the fantastic Mission Revival Architecture surviving in Long Beach and was styled after the California Missions with their curved linear gables. Located just steps to the beach and sand with easy access to the terrific bike and pedestrian boardwalk this architecturally significant home has a lot to offer! The interior great room has stunning custom hand milled wood coffered ceilings with additional beautiful custom wood work throughout the home as well which will surely impress. The newly finished wood floors are gorgeous and the numerous picture windows create a light and breezy interior to take advantage of the ocean breezes. The corner lot location is fantastic and the home offers gorgeous manicured lush gardens with many outdoor patios and balconies to take advantage of the cool beach weather that this coastal paradise offers! There is also a finished basement that includes a workspace and wine cellar room too. The kitchen has been updated and the formal dining area is a fantastic place to entertain guest. The RARE added bonus is the HUGE tax savings this home offers due to its Historical nature and qualifying for the Mills Act tax savings that can be transferred to the new owner (2020 annual tax was only $4599 per assessor). Another fantastic benefit of owning this fabulous home is a STUDIO unit with its own private entrance above the garage. This is great for use as home office, guest suite or to have as a good income flow for the property separate of the main residence! Opportunities like this one are rare and offer a terrific investment opportunity to owner occupy or utilize as an investment property as well given the tax savings and high demand for the area for both long-term and vacation rental opportunities! Long Beach is a vibrant coast city offering a bustling Downtown, quaint coastal Belmont Shore entertainment district, 4th St. Retro Row, Eclectic East Village Arts District and so much more! Professional interior photos to be added at active status.
