Now testing the waters in Long Beach is a new listing in Belmont Heights known as Casa Oceana. Set on a 1.28-acre oceanfront lot, the Spanish Colonial-style residence was designed by the illustrious Roland Coate in 1927, and restored and expanded by USC-trained architect Carl McLarand.
Situated between two private streets, the 7,692-square-foot villa has three bedrooms and six bathrooms. Interior features include hardwood and tile floors, coffered and beamed ceilings, built-ins, and copious expanses of glass to provide dreamy ocean vistas.
Designed by landscape architect Don Brinkerhoff, the property’s grounds contain a sunken swimming pool, a spa, a koi pond, fountains, outdoor living and dining spaces, a sculpture garden, and plenty of greenery. The estate also comes with 225 feet of unobstructed ocean frontage and a private stairway to the beach.
Last sold in 1976, Casa Oceana is now aiming to break local sales records with an asking price of $11.995 million. To date, the highest recorded sale price for a Long Beach residence is $8.6 million.
An open house is scheduled from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tuesday. Tony Shooshani and Josh Flagg share the listing.
