On the market for the first time in 43 years, Casa Oceana in Long Beach, California sits on the Southern California coastline with stunning views of the Pacific Ocean, Queen Mary, and miles of sandy beaches.
Designed by notable Los Angeles architect Roland Coates, this Spanish-style home was built in 1927 on 1.28 acres of oceanfront bluffs.
The secluded “Casa Oceana” offers 7,692-square feet of space with three beds, six baths, three fireplaces, two saunas, a basement, a spa, a private pool house, 800-square-feet game room, four-car garage, plus much more.
The property has had just two previous owners before Bob and Audrey Langslet purchased it in 1976 and made the current refurbishments with project architect Carl McLarland, landscape architect Don Brinkerhoff and interior designers Don Brown and Nada Brown. “Casa Oceana” was awarded the Pacific Coast Builders Conference Gold Nugget Grand Award for Best Renovation in 1979.
The beachfront estate features seven outdoor living spaces including a stunning pool with unobstructed ocean views, beautiful circular motor court with a hand-carved Mexican fountain; a magnificent koi pond with a nearly 150-year-old Japanese fountain; a sculpture garden adjacent to the main library; an ocean terrace near the sunroom, living and dining areas; beautifully landscaped rear garden area; and extraordinary lush north gardens overlooking the sunken swimming pool.
The Spanish theme of the original house has been retained throughout the approx 1.28-acre lot, extending the entire block, with 10-foot exterior walls guaranteeing full privacy.
The estate is secured between two private streets, with 225 feet of unobstructed ocean frontage.
The home and surrounding grounds sit quietly between two gated, private streets with 10-feet high exterior walls and a stairway with private beach access.
The sprawling private home is now available for a record $11.995 million. Rodeo Realty and Josh Flagg Real Estate in Beverly Hills, California is handling the home listing and the MLS number is 19495512. To schedule a private showing, please call Tony Shooshani at 310-274-2777.
