An oceanfront home built in 1928 by the late Dick Loynes, a legendary yachtsman and philanthropist, has come on the market at $1.1-million. Loynes skippered the yacht Contender in 1939 to win the Golden Gate International Exposition trophy.
Loynes built his 3,700-square-foot house in Long Beach with a Baccarat chandelier in the living room, inlaid gold trim around much of the interior and etched-glass windows, each with a nautical theme.
The house was one of five on Ocean Boulevard that had a tunnel to the beach. The tunnels were all filled in during the 1940s when there was fear of a Japanese invasion.
