$2.2 Million Homes in California

Long Beach | $2.19 Million

A 1935 Colonial Revival-style house with five bedrooms and three full and three half bathrooms, on a 0.9-acre lot

Built in 1935, this house was designed by Kirtland Cutter, a Pacific Northwest architect who was known for his colonial homes and contributed a building to the 1893 World’s Fair. The site plan and front sculpture garden were done by Ralph D. Connell, a landscape architect responsible for the grounds of the University of California, Los Angeles, as well as the La Brea Tar Pits.

Built for a lawyer, this house is in the Los Cerritos section of Long Beach, a popular film location because of its proximity to Los Angeles and concentration of estate-style homes. The Virginia Country Club, a private golf course and clubhouse, is several blocks away.

Size: 4,071 square feet

Price per square foot: $538

Indoors: A brick wall separates the house from the street, and a brick footpath winds through a small sculpture garden leading to the front door.

The wide foyer looks down into a sunken living room. To the left is a wood-paneled study with built-in bookcases and a half bathroom. To the right are a powder room with toile-fabric-covered walls and a stairway to the second level.

The living room has elements of Georgian symmetry, with two arched built-ins flanking a large window, and mullioned doors and windows on either side of the marble fireplace.

Beyond the living room is the formal dining room, which is painted coral and has glass doors that open to the patio. A small doorway leads to the kitchen, renovated by the owners, whose love of French Impressionism guided their color choices, including cornflower-blue Caeserstone counters and hand-painted yellow tiles. A swinging door opens to a short hallway that connects to a guest bedroom and a bathroom with a combination tub and shower.
