Once a year, Long Beach Heritage invites the public to view some of the unique homes that make up the city’s rich architectural history. For the 2014 Great Homes Tour on Sunday, June 1 from 12-5 pm, six distinguished homes of distinctive architectural character will take the spotlight. Docents will highlight the interior and exterior features and the history of each home.
The homes presented this year are:
A fully restored, turn of the century manse with exceptional interiors once the home of a Long Beach Mayor, Ray C. Kealer. It is currently located in the historic Willmore district but originally constructed further downtown.
An Italian Renaissance home with original detailing circa 1927. The home has been with the same Family for many years.
A 1920’s Spanish revival located in the beachside community of Bluff Park. Lovely detailing invites one into the house through an enclosed patio. Fans of the hit series, Dexter, will recognize this home.
A charming, suburban home, built in 1956, designed by famous architect Edward Killingsworth, for Mrs. Burt Galleher. Flanking wings add an uncommon detail which integrates the home’s interior and exterior.
A Naples home representative of the canal lifestyle. This three level, 3000 square foot, custom built home has three bedrooms and four bathrooms. Posters by 20th century contemporary artist, Leonardo Cappiello, and an array of glass pieces brings this home to life.
A Naples Yacht Club contemporary which features multiple outdoor living spaces and a sun-drenched living room and kitchen. With uncompromising views of the canal, it is an entertainers delight.
