Situated in the Virginia Country Club area of Long Beach, this magnificent Victorian-style home took craftsman and artisans over three years to create. Unique to the house are many antique features, including hand-carved mantles and stained glass windows. The dramatic entryway opens to the formal sunken living room. The living area features an antique hand-carved oak fireplace mantle, high ceilings, and recessed lighting. The dining area is bathed in natural light accented by stained glass windows—a butler’s pantry and solid oak flooring compliment the formal entertainment areas. A home office and a private patio overlooking the park are just off the main entry. Immediately behind the foyer is the spacious family room with two-story high ceilings and stained glass windows. The family room is complete with a wet bar, including a clear ice-maker and two wine coolers. Adjacent to the family room is the gourmet kitchen appointed with stainless Wolf appliances, a built-in Thermador refrigerator & freezer, custom hardwood cabinets, a walk-in pantry, and granite counters. The upstairs bedrooms are spacious and offer park views. The large master bedroom has an ensuite bath with a Jacuzzi tub, walk-in closet, and a private study overlooking the family room. The lower-level basement currently serves as a home gym. The secluded rear yard features a sitting area with a fire pit and an outdoor kitchen area—newly installed solar panels top-off this custom-built Victorian home.
