Chateau Lowena

The Historic Landmark, “Chateau Lowena” is nestled in the Lowena Historic District and is located at 260 N. Lowena Drive. The street and the district are named after the Lowe family and the son, H.N. Lowe, who developed the unique residential structures.

This extraordinary building design is based on the Medieval French Chateau architectural style. Being one of the 1st of this particular style in Long Beach, it became quite popular in the late teens and early 20s in Southern California. The steeply pitched roofs, finials, turrets, battlements and distinctive window shapes are noteworthy.

Graced with well maintained landscaping, reminiscent of French gardens, the overall ambience is complete.

There is an onsite laundry for our resident’s convenience, some garage parking available and the units are cable ready. The “Chateau Lowena” is comprised of eight very spacious apartments including a studio, four 1 bedroom, two 2 bedroom, and one extremely large 3 bedroom. Each is unique and still boasts some of the original detail as well as designer touches. Several of the units have private outdoor garden areas.

All of the apartments have beautiful hardwood floors, some with a highly polished glossy look and some with a more muted matte finish. All kitchens and baths are tiled, some with original vintage tile and some with a more modern look.

The neighborhood is lovely and offers many options for weekend outings. Stroll to nearby coffee houses and eateries, or visit the local parks and shops. The bike paths are convenient for trips to the beach and other Long Beach attractions.
