Long Beach "Skinny House" is Now Fat -- in Comparison
Shannon Jones, Long Beach CA Real Estate (The Shannon Jones Team)

Long Beach Skinny HouseYears ago, when I was just starting out in real estate, the very first Long Beach home I sold was also the very skinniest.

Located at 708 Gladys in the Rose Park Historic District of Long Beach, it was just 9 feet wide. Word on the street was that it had been featured in the Guinness Book of World Records. I remember the day after I saw it, I received a call from a potential buyer who told me she was looking for something different, something with character and history for $100,000 or under.

"I have just the home for you," I told her. It was just $99,000. She wrote an offer on the spot.

A few years later, she moved and I sold it again -- and this time, the home was written up in the Los Angeles Times, the Long Beach Press Telgram. I was even interviewed on Good Morning America -- my two minutes of fame, if you will. If you check Skinny House (Long Beach) on Wikipedia, you'll find a brief history of this tiny 1932 Tudor.

It was built by Newton Rummond after he acquired the 500 sq. ft. lot as payment for a $100 debt. Some doubted that he would be able to make something of the space and he proved them wrong with this 860 sq. ft. skinny gem.

Skinny House of PolandBut it seems the skinny house of Long Beach is now fat in comparison to what's being built in Poland.

Jakub Szczesy is planning a home with a "wide point" of just four feet. At it's narrowest, it will be just 28 inches wide. Yet, like the skinny house of Long Beach, it will have spaces for sleeping, eating and working.

The place will have off-grid plumbing inspired by boat sewage technology and electricity from a neighbor.

To save space, the entry stairs will fold up with a press of a button and become part of the first floor. Definitely technology that wasn't available in the 1930s when the Long Beach Skinny House was built.

The new model may be skinnier, but I still think the Tudor in Long Beach will retain the honor of being the prettiest skinny house. And besides, it has a rooftop deck that gets lovely ocean breezes -- something the new version in Poland clearly doesn't have.

Quaint Homes for Sale in the Rose Park Neighborhood of Long Beach, CA
Shannon Jones, Long Beach CA Real Estate (The Shannon Jones Team)

Craftsman Bungalow in Rose ParkI bought my first home in the Rose Park neighborhood of Long Beach years ago and have been hooked on the area ever since then. I love helping home buyers and sellers in the Rose Park area and have now sold many of the homes in the area multiple times.

Many home buyers my team and I have worked with over the years were like myself, stumbling upon the neighborhood after looking at homes in nearby, more expensive Belmont Heights. When I first began selling real estate in 1998, many Realtors weren't familiar with the Rose Park neighborhood, but now it's become a popular, more desirable area.

Rose Park signThe Rose Park neighborhood of Long Beach lies between 4th Street & 10th Street, Cherry and Redondo. The neighborhood gets its name from a circular park at 8th and Orizaba. The neighborhood encompasses two separate historic districts - the Rose Park Historic District and the Rose Park South Historic District - and has an active neighborhood association.

Many of the homes in Rose Park were built in the 1920s, with some from the teens and some from the 1930s or later. The architecture primarily consists of Craftsman bungalows and Spanish Revival homes, but there are also a few Tudor, Victorian and other styles mixed in. Additionally, Rose Park offers some condos and multi-family properties.

Rose ParkThe Rose Park neighborhood is convenient to parks, recreation and schools. It's also walking distance to shops and restaurants along 4th Street's Retro Row and the renovated Art Theater.

If you're interested in exploring homes for sale in the Rose Park neighborhood or surrounding areas, my team and I would be happy to help you with your search. In the past 12 years, we've sold more homes in Rose Park than any other Realtor!
