Dr. L.L. Cowley Residence, 1954



Dr. L.L. Cowley selected this sylvan grove of sycamores on over a third of an acre. From the exterior, the house retains the architectural elements that are a trademark of Kenneth S. Wing’s beach aesthetic: board and batten siding, a front entrance that consists of a breezeway and courtyard built on descending levels, a highly articulated roof line, and mullioned and bay windows leading to the front entry. The interior’s long expanses of glass, the brick fireplace and carefully scaled rooms overlooking the swimming pool were all done in a style that Killingsworth would become known for. With a formal dining room area, en suite master bedroom, two additional bedrooms and baths, the residence is a delightful element of the Long Beach architectural heritage.
