1957 Mid-Century Modern – Designed by renowned architect Edward A. Killingsworth, this lovely Park Estates home is a classic example of modernist sensibilities. Post-and-beam style, clerestory windows and original materials express the essence of minimalist garden living.
1912 Craftsman – Designated as a contributing building to the Bluff Park Historic District, this home retains extensive period details such as mother-of-pearl push-button light switches and original wood wainscoting, built-in cabinetry and flooring.
1928 Spanish Colonial Revival – Perched on a hill where Belmont Heights descends to the Shore, this art-filled home has a turreted entry, an expansive coved ceiling in the living room, a carefully modernized kitchen and a large terraced rear garden.
1930 Luxurious Duplex -Erected for developer Charles Malcolm and filled with original California tile, rich woodwork, ingenious built-ins and an unparalleled courtyard that evokes old Seville. John D. Sherer was the designer-builder known for his construction of Long Beach’s first ‘skyscraper’ – the Pacific Southwest Building on Broadway and Long Beach Boulevard.
1913 Arts and Crafts Treasure – In residence for 16 years, the owners of this Bluff Park gem have taken pains to honor its origins. In 2,550 feet, they have artfully blended antiques and reproductions with modern comforts.
