Fascinating item on the market in Long Beach, California: an authentic 1954 midcentury modern home designed by Powers, Daly, and De Rosa, the firm that catalyzed SoCal's legion of elaborate midcentury bowling palaces. Not unlike the practice's iconic Covina Bowl, a 50-lane Egyptian-themed pin emporium that also included a barbershop, beauty parlor, and night club, this 2,569-square-foot brick home comes with its own host of fancy amenities. The three-bedroom, three-bath home, loaded with red flagstone flooring and built-in cabinetry and furniture, also features an original living room koi pond/fountain that leads out to the patio. The rest of the 0.26-acre grounds include a flagstone courtyard, pool, and above-ground hot tub.
