The iconic Bixby Ranch House is undoubtedly one of the most famous homes in Long Beach. Built in 1890 for George H. Bixby and designed by Coxhead & Coxhead, this property originally sat on a 10 acre lot which has since been subdivided and is part of a highly coveted private gated community of 32 homes known as La Linda Drive. Currently sitting on a 30,492 sq.ft. lot, this 6,978 sq.ft. Dutch Colonial style home boasts 8 bedrooms, 7 bathrooms and 6 operable wood burning fireplaces. The master suite overlooks the reflection pools below and offers a large walk in closet and a spacious ensuite with soaking tub, walk in shower and dual vanities. The features and highlights are endless starting with a magnificent dining room, gourmet kitchen, grand salon/music room and a library/study. From the English oak panel walls and trim, Bernini fireplace columns and coffered ceilings, this home's original features hark back to a time of grand entertaining and impressive craftsmanship. On the grounds of the Bixby Ranch House you will find a sprawling yard with plenty of space to add a large swimming pool, three car garage and a massive courtyard with a pergola perfect for outdoor entertaining through the seasons. Adjacent to the home and courtyard is a fountain surrounded by traditional landscaping and 2 spectacular reflecting pools. The Bixby Ranch house was deemed a historic landmark in 1988 and is in immaculate condition thanks to the current owner's diligence and care. With it's tremendous old world charm and potential to be modernized and styled to any desired aesthetic, it is not one to be missed! A short stroll to the entertaining strip of Bixby Knolls including the newly revived Petroleum Club, restaurants, shops and First Fridays. Highly accredited school district and close freeway access.
