This place is right by my grandparents beach house and we have walked by for years. I wouldn't spend more than a minute or two here and it's not open to the public.

This home is one of a kind. Concrete and glass w/ the casement windows make this gem worth seeing. Located on the Boardwalk between the Newport & Balboa Piers it's worth taking a moment or two to have a look. It's a classic!

The waves crashed against the beach the morning I pulled up and took in the grandeur that was the Lovell Beach House. On a nondescript street, and right on the boardwalk this gem stands proud. It is currently a private residence, so please respect that...More
