Found in the southern portion of Orange County, CA, Laguna Beach is known as the premier seaside artist haven in Southern California. It still retains a small town charm, and the downtown portion that hugs a sandy beach is a great place to stroll. Close by are cottages sited within subtropical gardens. Many homes are situated along bluffs that overlook sandy coves. The seven mile stretch of coastline within the city is considered some of the most scenic in the state

The city is bordered by hills that rise up to a 1,000 feet in elevation. Winding lanes work their way along these hillsides affording sites for view homes that line the ridge tops and slopes. There are numerous small canyons where homes are nestled within the sheltering folds amidst a forest of trees
