Historic Long Beach Mansion One Block from the Ocean Welcome to this one-of-a-kind Long Beach mansion with incredible Beaux Arts details and preserved details throughout. Lovingly referred to as “The White House of Long Beach” due to its grand façade and history of hosting diplomats and ambassadors, this elegant home spreads 9 bedrooms, 5.5 bathrooms, beautiful original hardwood floors, and marble accents across a sprawling three-story 6,164 sq. ft. layout. Past a gated entryway, an expansive foyer leads into a spacious living room featuring crème and gold painted walls and a wet bar. Beveled glass doors open into a formal dining room with black-and-white marble floors. The kitchen is sublime, adorned with an eat-in peninsula, banquette window seating, sleek granite countertops, white subway tile backsplash, a walk-in pantry, and high-end stainless steel appliances including a Thermador gas stove and oven hood. A library, powder room, patio, and lounge complete the first level. On the second level of the home is an incredible primary suite with a bright sitting room, a windowed walk-in closet with built-in storage, and a windowed en-suite bathroom with a bidet, step-in shower, and a Jacuzzi tub. There is also a home office/den and two additional bedrooms with full en-suite bathrooms. Six additional bedrooms and a windowed full bathroom sit on the third level of the home. Each bedroom has a huge storage closet and can easily be used as additional office or hobby space. Several rooms on this floor also boast ocean views. Finishing the home is an expansive basement with a full bathroom and a separate entry point. Additional features include 8-zone heating, a recently upgraded boiler, a two-car garage with automatic doors, a gated driveway, lush plantings, and a state-of-the-art security system with cameras, security lights, and mult-screen monitoring accessible from the kitchen and primary bedroom. 238 West Penn Street is only one block from the beach and an extensively remodeled boardwalk dotted with vendors and food trucks. The home sits on the Museum Block of Long Beach, which is also called the "Lion Block", because of the marble lions who sit as guardians for these impressive homes. There are interesting shops and restaurants nearby as well as a local farmer’s market. The home is six blocks from the LIRR and 50 minutes by train into Midtown Manhattan. JFK Airport is only 20 minutes away.
