Long Beach’s grand old Bixby House seeks $3.2M

By Elijah Chiland

Here’s your chance to own one of the oldest and most distinguished houses in Long Beach.

Built in 1890, the handsome Bixby Ranch House—a city landmark—was constructed for developer George Bixby, whose name is shared by the Bixby Knolls neighborhood around the house. It originally served as the headquarters for Bixby ranch operations.

Having once been surrounded by farmland, the home outdates pretty much everything else in the area.

Interiors include coffered ceilings, hardwood floors, built-in shelving, multiple fireplaces, custom-carved pillars, and dramatic moldings.
