The Hastings Residence, by architects Powers, Daly, & DeRosa (1954.) Turning its back to the street, an austere brick facade with cascading stepped patio entrance gives only an indication of the mid-century modern compound that lies beyond. Past the front door, a u-shaped plan shelters vast expanses of floor to ceiling glass walls, and literally brings the landscape inside by way of an indoor/outdoor traversing koi pond and fiddle leaf fig tree grown from an indoor planter. The layout places 3 bedrooms and 2 baths at one end of home and a bonus/guest room with 3/4 bath at the other. Original details are found throughout. Modern updates intertwine with and show respect for these details: custom plywood and maple cabinets with cutaway pulls mimic the modest design of the original kitchen. Color blocks of tile in a bath and an outdoor shower pay homage to LAX's mosaic tiled tunnels. Textured Luau Mahogany panels give warmth to several walls. Cork floor has been laid throughout living areas and bedrooms, with the exception of the original flagstone and slate. The flagstone continues outside surrounding the resort like pool and leading to the patio and garden areas. Current owners spent over a year out of the house, completing system updates to the highest caliber. High efficiency zoned HVAC units, ducting, roofing, plumbing, electrical rewire & panel, insulation, owned solar panels, solar pool heating, Cat6 wiring, and much more. A generous two car attached garage faces the well kept alley, with additional RV spaced parking in the private driveway. Located in the highly sought after Bixby Knolls neighborhood of Long Beach-with its tree lined streets, top rated schools, walkability to restaurants and shopping, and central location for commutes to Los Angeles or Orange County.
