The Mahieu/Heckman House (1914). A California Bungalow that predates the vast majority of its neighbors as one of the earliest remaining homes in the Los Cerritos neighborhood. It was notably once home to Albert Mahieu, who had come to Long Beach after being tasked with landscaping what was then the newly built Virginia Country Club just down the street. This is an area known for some of Long Beach's most extravagant and historic properties, where finding a modestly sized home in such a prime location is rare. Though modest, it commands plenty of attention with its unique architectural detailing and lush California native front garden. The home stands proudly on the corner of Pine and Roosevelt, allowing large east and south facing windows to bathe the interior spaces in sunlight. This elevated corner lot location adds to a feeling of spaciousness, both inside the house and out. The classic bungalow covered porch further expands the living space and provides for a perfect morning coffee location. Many of the home's 1914 details remain, making the property well suited for a preservation minded buyer. Original cabinetry and a vintage O'keefe & Merritt stove are found in the kitchen. Existing sash hung and picture windows have been left intact at the street facing, with all others having been updated to complimentary style Anderson double pane windows. Not included in the home's nearly 1,200 sf measure is an additional approximately 200 sf bonus room that is attached to the garage. It makes for an ideal workspace/artist's studio: with concrete floors, french doors, and work sink. A later built garage has parking for two cars as well as space for workshop and laundry. Being a more than 7,200 sf corner lot with alley access, the property holds excellent potential for a future ADU to be developed with little to no adverse effect to the current home and yard space. Well situated in one of Long Beach's most desirable and picturesque neighborhoods: with tree lined streets, top rated schools, and summer concerts in the park; walkable to excellent independently owned shops, restaurants, and breweries.
