Explore Long Beach Craftsman Homes For Sale

Sometimes called the "California bungalow" or the "ultimate bungalow," the Craftsman home began life when two brothers from Pasadena began designing livable structures for working class families sometime around 1903. As their name suggests, Long Beach Craftsman homes for sale are designed to expose the meticulous craftsmanship that has shaped them, with exposed rafters, built-in vanities and bookcases, and the use of local, natural materials like solid wood and slabs of stone. Owners of Craftsman homes in Long Beach have typically been very careful to maintain these prized properties, but even those in need of a little love are sturdy enough to have stood the test of time.

You'll find Long Beach Craftsman homes for sale painted in hues that evoke the ocean or the earth, with outdoor features like stone exterior chimneys and Oriental pagodas that suggest both comfort and serenity. Ranging in size from 800 to more than 3,000 square feet, these one-story or split-level buildings sit on very wide urban footprints, and often include vaulted ceilings, French doors, and oversized bedrooms that further contribute to this sense of spaciousness. Many have been renovated over the years to introduce modern cooling, plumbing, and electrical systems, but you'll also find Craftsman homes where many of the original details and features have been lovingly preserved. Though these homes predate the predominance of the automobile, many of them also feature large detached garages.

Some of the other features you'll find in these Long Beach real estate listings include:

  • large stone fireplace
  • wine cellars or refrigerators
  • original claw foot tubs
  • plantation shutters
  • walk-in closets and extra storage
