One of the iconic buildings from the 1960's in the Long Beach area is the Chateau Lisa building.  The compex was built in 1968 and is one of the affordable places to find a two bedroom condo in the Belmont Heights area of Long Beach.  The exact location is on the corner of Junipero Avenue and 2nd streets mixed in with the Bluff Park neighborhood homes.  One of the best features I love about these condos are those with north facing windows that over look the Park area.  It adds an extra layer of the open floor plan with covered outdoor patios that take in the wonderful park views.  The location is also one of the best selling points as it's just blocks to the ocean and a short distance to local shops and restaurants.

Living in Southern California comes with warm weather throughout most of the year.  For the most part, air-conditioning is not necessary when you own a property near the beach.  The cool coastal winds come in from the ocean and always tend to cool things down for the greater part of the year.  That being said, there always seems to be several months that get especially hot when having an HVAC air conditioner really comes in handy.  While this is something every home in other parts of the country would have, here in Southern California it's considered a luxury, especially for older homes where an air-conditioner was never installed.  Since it's only needed a couple months out of the entire year many owners will just put up with the heat or install a small
