Set on a typical lot in the Belmont Park district of Long Beach, California, this custom Hawaiian style house creates a relaxed atmosphere with intimate and open spaces while only a short block away from the bay. Originally built in 1929, this property started as a 1,050 square foot, 2-bedroom, and 1-bath house. After renovation this custom 2-story home now features over 3,100SF of living space including 4 bedrooms, 3 baths, a large loft and den, a gourmet kitchen, and a private front courtyard and third floor sun deck.

The exterior is finished in a smooth Maui brown stucco color complimented by Coronado Stone Veneer, teak finished wood doors, and windows with Bermuda shutters. Both the pitch of the roof and the custom green blend of the roofing tiles highlight the exterior design elements. 9 varying paint colors were used throughout the house to accentuate the interiors.
