There’s just something about beach houses.  Ocean views. Cool breezes. The sound of the waves crashing in the distance. It’s the California dream and only a few people are fortunate to live it. This contemporary oceanfront estate in Laguna Beach reminds us of this dream–and maybe just maybe we’re not as far off as we think.


Featuring six bedrooms, seven and a half baths, and awe-inspiring panoramas of surf, sand, and sun over the Pacific,  this grand, yet intimate, seaside retreat offers complete privacy since it is gated and situated down a private drive. Set on two lots totaling one acre and spanning approximately 10,000 square feet, the property is unusually spacious for being on the oceanfront. Amenities range from a grassy yard and resort style pool and spa to direct access to the sandy beach below. (Can you imagine a spending a summer there?)  Inside, you have multiple levels of patios and terraces with ocean views from every major room. The interiors have also been designed for the casual beach lifestyle with marble fireplaces, teak parquet floors, a lounge area, wet bar, formal dining, elevator, 3-car garage, and motor court–perfect for entertaining. The lower level boasts a media room with stadium seating, exercise room, office, and two guest bedrooms. The superb master suite is a haven with enormous dual closets and master bath with separate shower and spa tub oriented to maximize dramatic sunsets and ocean vistas. California dream? Yes. But for one lucky buyer, it could be reality.
