1896 N College Circle, Long Beach, CA 90815
4 bedrooms, 2 baths  |  1,900 sqft  |  Map 


At 1896 North College Circle, a stunning Mid-Century Modern home that has been lovingly cared for by the same family for over 50 years. Built around a large central courtyard, it is strikingly open yet also incredibly private. Separated into two distinct wings: three large bedrooms plus full bath on one side; master bedroom, bath, and laundry on the other. At it's center are the areas for living and entertaining. In the spacious open plan living and dining room:a dramatic fireplace anchors one side of the room, a Poul Cadovius modular wall unit wraps the other. In the kitchen: beautiful Emerald toned tile counters, newly refinished cabinetry, and all new stainless steel appliances. Both rooms overlook the private courtyard, which acts as a seamless extension of the interior spaces, provides areas for both sun and shade, and creates vast areas of storage on it's perimeters. Past sliding doors and cleverly sited at the very back of the property, are pool, spa, and outdoor shower. The house has many recent updates throughout: flooring, recessed lighting, dual pane windows/doors, fresh paint inside and out, roofing, solar panels, and more. Well situated in a tract of rarely offered custom homes with award winning schools, and in close proximity to all.
