This Italian Renaissance dream, originally built in 1921 and completely remodeled and updated in 2007 boasts the original integrity and character but with modern upgraded amenities throughout. Each space has been thoughtfully created to highlight the unique charm using hand-selected pieces from the imported Italian limestone, terra cotta tiles, wood floors, and custom floors to the handcrafted iron circular banister. The coffered ceilings, built-in bookshelves and display cases accent the interior. Step out back to the resort-style oasis, with mature trees, lush grass yard, and covered patio with a fireplace and powder room, ideal for the indoor/outdoor lifestyle of California (the yard is plumbed to build a pool if desired). The guest house above the four-car garage serves as an excellent income opportunity or the perfect place for extended family. The main house boasts 3 upstairs bedrooms (all en-suite) and a palatial primary retreat with a stunning spa bath and walk-in closets. This home is both elegant and chic, but with welcoming energy and authentic luxury. The ideal location one block from Ocean Blvd. features walkability to the beach, Belmont Shores, and Downtown Long Beach.
