Bluff Heights – Hot List
There was an era in Southern California where quaint homes, rich in character, were developed just blocks from the Ocean. Families and individuals alike would come from miles around to enjoy a nice weekend and to even set up permanent residence in a city that was quickly developing. With Long Beach being over 100 years old it’s history is rich and areas close to the ocean were often developed first. One such area that is ocean close and has homes over 100 years old is that of Bluff Heights.
