Belmont Heights – Long Beach California

Belmont Heights is a lovely, eclectic mix of early century homes, low rise condos, smaller apartment buildings (including some fabulous Spanish duplexes), restaurants, coffee shops, funky stores, galleries and a nice mix of neighborhood friendly small business. Just blocks from the bluffs, overlooking the harbor, the beach, and a short walk into Belmont Shore, Belmont Heights is a tree lined Long Beach Community developed in the early 20th Century, and a great place to call home. Many of the neighborhood homes were originally built as summer cottages mostly between 1905 and 1939, later becoming year round residences. More bungalow style homes can be found here than in any other community of Long Beach.

In Belmont Heights you will find a wonderful array of beautifully crafted Long Beach homes in many styles; the Craftsman Bungalow predominating with about 2/3 of the homes in the area. Other home styles found in the Belmont Heights neighborhood are:

  • Tudor Revival 1920s
  • Neo-Traditional 1930 – 1940s

Relocating to Long BeachIf you are considering relocating to Long Beach, Belmont Heights would be a great consideration. Affordable and beach close, convenient to all area amenities and freeway close this would be a smart choice. We are about 20 minutes south of Los Angeles Airport – LAX, about 20 minutes North of John Wayne Airport in Irvine and even have our own airport. Long Beach Airport is a major hub for Jet Blue Airlines (my personal favorite) and is extremely easy to fly in and out of. The City of Long Beach has great employment opportunities; the Port of Long Beach being the largest. We have a little something for just about everybody.
