Mediterranean, Spanish Colonial, Victorian, Tudor and Traditional are the other architectural designs that marinate the beautiful tree lined streets found in the “mostly” unaltered homes of Belmont Heights.



If it’s history you are looking for “the Belmont Heights Historic Landmark homes north of Seventh Street, west of Newport Avenue, south of Fourth Street and on the east of Roswell Avenue, plus there are several properties located on Seventh & Fourth Streets are included. The Belmont Heights district was subdivided and developed in the 1900s. To this day there are homes built in 1905 that remain.  Out of 304 homes surveyed, 206 are "contributing" Craftsman bungalows, and 125 of these are pristine unaltered examples.



The vast range of Belmont Height is a city inside a city and offers you a little bit of this and a little bit of that.

There are seven versions of the popular Craftsman Bungalow or Spanish Revival homes in the area, all built in 1923 by Boland & Smith. "Eliot Court” was designed to be dear and cozy in scope. The homes are still small - 600 to 900 square feet.

Most People Don’t Know:

In between Redondo Avenue and Livingston Drive along Ocean Blvd, amongst the palm trees Feral Parrots are a notable feature of Belmont Heights. The large population of feral parrots can be seen and heard. Due to their rather vocal and loud sounds, some believe these birds to be a nuisance. Conversely, the residents of Belmont Heights view them as part of their community. ***Before annexation into the City of Long Beach, Belmont Heights was a dry town.

Great report on the Belmont Heights area of Long Beach and who would have guessed you have Feral Parrots there.  But then again, when I went to kauai I didn't expect to see chickens and roosters everywhere either.

Dale~ I appreciate your kind comment and I am glad you told me so...Thank you!

Scott~ Legend has is it the Parrots originate from a car accident...It seems that a truck transporting a dozen Parrots was involved in a traffic accident. The birds were never sold as pets, but instead freed as a result of the accident...& btw: (yes) "weird seeing hens throughout the Islands" Thanks!

BLIZ~ thanks for the vote of confidence, "as we know" (neighborhood reporting) online clients search for. Thanks again...
