One of the best kept secrets in Long Beach is a small gated community called "Aubry" or "Aubry at Alamitos Ridge." Homes were first built here starting back in 2010 and were part of a master planned community that originally offered three and four bedroom floor plans to choose from. Prices back then started for some of the 4 bedroom homes at $579,900. The home included at that time stainless steel appliances, granite counters and front yard landscaping among other upgrades like tankless water heater and insulated air ducts. Since then prices have steadily been going up with many homes selling just under the $800,000 price point.
This area of Long Beach is referred to as the Signal Hill area which is located high on a hill that often offers nice panoramic views while being just a little over a couple miles to the beach and near local freeways. There are currently two homes listed for sale at Aubry. The first is a four bedroom, three and a half bath home listed at $795,000. It just came on the market 2 days ago and is still available for sale. It features 2,496 square feet of living space with a 2 car attached garage. It features a large master suite with dual walk-in closets, a gourmet kitchen with center island, granite counters and stainless steel appliances. There is even a bonus loft area on the second floor which could be ideal for small office or computer work station. The other 4 bedroom home is on the market for $829,000 and has already received an offer which the owner accepted. It was on the market for approximately 31 days when it went under contract. On average, about 7 -8 homes come on the market every year here though in 2018 only 2 properties came up for sale. If you are looking for a quiet gated community near local parks, shopping and easy freeway access Aubry may be the perfect fit.
