On an elevated lot in the coveted Rancho Estates neighborhood of Long Beach, a stylishly and extensively updated 1954 Cliff May designed home. The largest and most desirable of the original floor plans, with signature walls of glass surrounding a spacious open plan. At its heart, a modern kitchen with massive 15' long quartz topped island; an inspired workspace and center of activity for the home. White concrete floors, designer light fixtures, and wallpaper accents make for a bright, fashionable interior amidst the backdrop of Cliff May's mid-century modern ranch home design. Bathrooms have recently been fully renovated with high end fixtures and custom cabinetry; walls of terrazzo in the guest bath and a herringbone patterned surround of tile in the master. An expanded master bedroom closet gives many times more storage than a typical Rancho home provides. A total redesign of hardscape and landscape considered how closely these homes relate to their surroundings. Focal point is an incredibly clever space saving salt water pool and spa, painted pale pink it presents as a sculptural element and provides a bench seating perimeter. A Japanese Guava tree shades the adjacent patio and BBQ area. Two car garage has been made into a multipurpose studio, with finished walls, floor, and mini split A/C. Additional system updates include new plumbing repipe, updated electrical panel, window safety/uv film, automated lighting, irrigation, and security system. In close proximity to the spectacular 800 acre El Dorado Park and nature preserve, as well as the San Gabriel River path. Tree lined streets, excellent schools, and a sense of community that rivals just about any in the city.
