Lakewood Plaza Ranchos and El Dorado Park in Long Beach California

Leave a comment »

19421838.gif

Lakewood Plaza and Rancho



If you are seeking a tree lined, quiet, well established neighborhood with a family atmosphere¦youll love Lakewood Plaza and the Ranchos.

Its located close to Long Beachs El Dorado Park where your family can enjoy a day of golf or a picnic in the park.  Nearby freeways are easily accessible and make for an easy commute to work and shopping.  The Plaza area is home to Cubberley School, a K-8 California Distinguished School.


Ranch style homes are the specialty

Built up between 1950 and the late 1960s, this neighborhood is well known for its open floor plan Ranch style homes.  Whether you´re looking for a smaller starter home with 2 bedrooms and 1 bath or a spacious family home with 3 bedrooms and 2 baths, youll find it here.  There are homes from 850 square feet to over 1,700 square feet.

Of particular interest are the Cliff May ranch-style homes, built in the early 50s, for which The Ranchos are famous.  Considered by many to be the father of the California ranch-style house, Cliff May was a builder with extraordinary vision of what the ideal California home should encompass.  He believed homes should be designed for livability rather than facade and designed about 18,000 of these beautiful homes as well as more than 1000 custom homes across the United States.  His additional goal of bringing the outdoors in was achieved in his designs by incorporating large expanses of glass creating a home that was filled with natural light bringing the outside gardens in, vaulted ceilings with exposed wood beams, clean lines with little decoration, attached garages, large patios with sliding glass doors, and rooms that flow into each other.

As you can imagine, the classic, mid-century Cliff May style homes are highly desirable and as a result rarely come on the market.  If youre interested in finding out more about the availability of these fabulous homes, give Laurie Manny, your Ranchos real estate expert, a call at (562) 212-5420.

At nearby El Dorado Park, youll find activities for the whole family.  Theres a 12-station fitness course, an archery range, bicycle trails and even radio controlled model aircraft and sailboat areas.

El Dorado Nature Center

Get away from the harried pace of urban life at the serene El Dorado Nature Center. The Nature Center sits in a lush, green space of 102.5 acres of woodlands right in the middle of Long Beach and is easily accessible.

The center opened in 1969 and is part of the El Dorado East Regional Park.  Originally it was a flood plain of the San Gabriel River and later became a calico bean field.  Today, the Nature Center is home to all kinds of wildlife including a wide variety of birds such as egrets, hawks, herons, coyotes, foxes, squirrels and skunks.

There are a variety of trees including redwoods, oaks and alders.  See the magical trees with roots so large they have burst through the top soil and formed caves.  The roots are so tall they tower over your head and you have to walk about 100 yards to get around the roots.
