Step back into a bygone era of elegance and simplicity. The Cooper Arms, built in 1923-24 as the first high rise, luxury, ownership apartment building in Long Beach offered those seeking elegant resort living expansive entry spaces, grand salon, soaring ceilings, light filled 12th floor solarium/ballroom & a beautiful outdoor courtyard. Today you can enjoy these spaces and all the beautiful architectural details that helped earn its designation as a Long Beach Historic Landmark and National Register of Historic Places. Unit 316 is set back, well off Ocean Blvd, in the south facing portion of this iconic building. As a corner unit, light streams in through windows on 2 sides. This space still preserves many of the features touted in the original sales brochures such as steam heating, high-speed elevators and disappearing beds. Its gleaming hardwood floors, period bathroom, elegant dressing area, and wood sash windows will take your breath away. 3 closets, graced with wood and mirror doors, opened by period glass door knobs provide abundant storage. Step through the French Doors onto your shaded balcony and enjoy cool ocean breezes and peek-a-boo ocean views. And for the entertainer in you, a modernized kitchen which blends beautifully with the original features, offers a wonderful place to share a friendly meal or as a backdrop for more elegant dining. With too many features to mention, this is one Downtown East Village Arts District home you need to see to believe.
