Property Description

A masterfully hand-crafted reconstruction of a classic Laguna Beach Craftsman Cottage. Four years in the making and just recently completed, this home—new in virtually every way—honors Laguna Beach’s rich architectural history in the way this home was completely modernized. From the unseen new foundation and steel support beams to the visible architectural fixtures and features, virtually every element of this home is not only brand new—but also hand-built with the finest of finishes. Situated on an Elevated, Oceanfront-adjacent parcel, this home features Breathtaking Panoramic Ocean and Whitewater Views from both the main and upper levels. With views stretching from Three Arch Bay down the coast and directly out to Catalina Island, the property offers an imposing presence above the sea. And, with an ideal southwest-facing orientation, the property captures the best ocean views possible. Rare Direct Deeded Access to Table Rock Beach below via Private Gated Stairs—only 30’ from the home. The main level comprises: living room, dining area, kitchen, secondary BR w/ en suite BA, powder room, laundry room, and outdoor entertaining deck. Ascending to the upper level captivates the senses with its rarefied ocean view setting and 360-degree views, including mountains, too. This level offers commanding ocean views, and includes the primary bedroom w/ en suite BA; spacious second living room w/ fireplace; wet bar; ocean-facing balcony; and additional outdoor deck. This level has been transformed into an exclusive, amenity-rich, yet comfortable primary suite all on one level, providing privacy from the rest of the house when desired, or, alternatively, easy seamless integration. Rare 3-Car Side-by-Side Garage Spaces wired for EVs. Some of the special features: custom sapele mahogany woodwork throughout; white oak floors; Dekton stone/porcelain from Spain; Bertazzoni kitchen appliances; Meile W/D; Blanco sinks; Grohe fixtures; Hafla, Fitzgellan, Rixson, and Emtek hardware; custom copper gutters/pipes; custom-made doors, window frames, baseboards, and heat registers; remote-controlled blinds pocketed in ceiling; lighted thresholds; custom mahogany garage doors; drystack hand-cut stonework. Quiet cul de sac with traffic signal onto PCH. Easy access into and out of Laguna. Walk to local restaurants. A home of this caliber of design, construction, and execution rarely comes available with such dramatic ocean-close views. Come enjoy luxurious beach living at its finest.
