Searching for a new construction home often comes with a lengthy timeline, but work is already underway at Summerland, a community of 16 detached single-family homes — all-electric with solar — in sought-after Signal Hill. Launching in early 2021, prospective buyers are encouraged to join the interest list to be among the first to know about purchasing opportunities within this thoughtfully-designed RC Homes development.
The project is an infill site that replaces two existing single-family dwellings that were initially constructed in 1918 and 1919. The dwellings feature a “modern farmhouse” architectural design including concrete tiled roofs, stucco finish with siding, decorative shutters, and sectional metal garage doors with windows.
Inside, the luxurious, modern interiors are characterized by nine-foot ceilings, expansive windows, and gourmet kitchens with breakfast bar seating. The functional and free-flowing floorplan boasts three bedrooms, two-and-a-half bathrooms, and a two-car, direct access side-by-side garage. Spread across two stories and 1,630 square feet, each home enjoys a private rear yard that’s perfect for summer barbecues and relaxing with the family.
The light-filled first floor is open-concept with the kitchen overlooking the dining and family rooms. There’s a convenient powder room for guests and a glass sliding door that lends the space an indoor/outdoor feel.
The kitchen is as stylish as it is efficient, appointed with quartz countertops, a full-height backsplash, Shaker-style door cabinets, Samsung stainless steel appliances (all-conduction) including a free-standing, five-burner conduction range, a single bowl sink, and a pull-down faucet in a sparkling chrome finish.
Upstairs, there are two secondary bedrooms that share a three-piece bathroom, an enclosed laundry room, dedicated tech space and a sumptuous principal suite featuring two generous walk-in closets and plenty of space for a sitting area and king-sized bed.
The spa-like ensuite bathroom touts a semi-frameless glass shower with a tile surround, a quartz-topped double vanity complete with Shaker-style door cabinets, recessed LED lighting over a full-width mirror, polished chrome faucets and fixtures, and a private toilet with an elongated back for added comfort.
The residences are equipped with the latest smart home and energy-efficient technology at no extra cost. Expect Ring video doorbells, Honeywell programmable smart thermostats, media outlets including data-compatible TV outlets in the great room, primary and secondary bedrooms, WiFi-enabled garage door openers, and Ubiquiti Wireless Access Points for enhanced connectivity.
Residents will save on monthly utility bills and lower their carbon footprints thanks to dual-glazed low-E vinyl windows, hybrid electric water heaters, R-15 exterior wall insulation and R-38 insulation in attic areas, energy-efficient forced-air heating, water-saving plumbing fixtures, low-VOC interior wall and ceiling paint, plus environmentally-friendly engineered lumber products.
Summerland is centrally located on 23rd Street, east of Orange Avenue, offering easy access to Mothers Market + Kitchen Grocery Store, neighborhood schools, big-box retailers, major employment centers and public transportation. Downtown Long Beach is just over three miles away, home to delicious seafood restaurants, art and history museums, eclectic vintage shops, and ferries to whisk you away to Catalina Island. Residents wanting to get even farther out of town, can hop a flight at the nearby Long Beach Airport, offering connections to several domestic destinations each day.
