Searching for a beach house for sale can online yield some pretty interesting results. For many, the thought of escaping to a beach community happens while sipping a nice glass of wine and triggers a spontaneous search. But did you ever imagine your search for a beach house for sale would turn up an opportunity to buy your own bed & breakfast?
The property listed for sale at 308 7th Street in Seal Beach may just be that opportunity. The home’s physical features are nearly as interesting as the story of where it came from. The current owner bought the house from the Luraschi family at some point in the late 90’s when it stood at it’s original location at 108 Central Avenue in Seal Beach, which now sits vacant (click the link for a picture).
According to the Orange County tax assessor, when the home was in it’s original configuration it was listed as a multi family dwelling. In June of 1999 the present owner purchased the land where the home resides today and began the transformation with plans to open a bed & breakfast. Part of this use change required rehabilitation of the structure amongst other aesthetic improvements that may have taken longer and used more resources then the present owner anticipated.
The property spans a double lot (50’x117′) that creates plenty of space for the courtyard area with fountain and breezy front porch, the combination of which are hard to find in Old Town Seal Beach. Admittedly the bed & breakfast is in need of finish work and minor construction to complete the vision of the current owner. A solid plan and the ability to restore the luster of this this unique beach home for sale could yield favorable results for the right business minded buyer.
Presently there are no bed & breakfast inn’s available for travelers seeking to experience the nostalgic side of Seal Beach lodging. Curious to find out if this may be the right opportunity for you? Click HERE to schedule a showing or contact us by phone at (562) 645-6501.
