Real Estate & Architecture in Los Angeles

5281 East El Roble Street in Long Beach


First offering! The Alexander House, 1951, by architect John Lautner, FAIA. Located in Park Estates, a planned community affording large lots, and wide tree-lined streets prepared for custom-built houses, and overseen by an architectural review committee.

The residence includes 4 bedrooms, 3 baths, a step-down living room, dining area, family room, laundry, and workshop.

The home’s interior opens to the intermediate zone patio defined by a wide cantilevered overhang and visually connects the gardens beyond affording a classic California indoor to outdoor lifestyle.

With several distinct iterations, drawings of the Alexander House at the Getty Research Library attest to a strong dialog between the client and architect. Lautner’s drawings suggest the site for a swimming pool in the garden. The new owner’s freshening requirements may provide cause for Mills Act Tax Benefits.
