When it comes to this gorgeous ocean view property in Laguna Beach, a picture is worth a thousand words—or more accurately, $29,500,000. Beachfront and oceanfront properties in California are already rare because there is a finite number of them, but the breathtaking 9,000 square-foot residence takes that rarity and raises it to a whole new degree. Resting on the Peninsula of Emerald Bay above the bluffs, it is one of only three properties in Emerald Bay to have direct access to the exclusive Irvine Cove beach via a private path. Emerald Bay is also home to some of Southern California’s most sought-after real estate.

Inside, a circular staircase elegantly connects four expansive levels leading to six bedrooms, study, yoga studio, gourmet kitchen, outdoor entertaining spaces, as well as a pool and spa. The flowing floorplan and minimal use of walls flood the residence with  warm natural light…and of course…those gorgeous Pacific Ocean views. Set on the highest level, the master bedroom reveals a spacious his- and her- master bath and windows on opposite walls to ensure you awake to every sunrise over Emerald Bay, and end your day with a sunset overlooking Irvine Cove.
