Laguna Beach, CA 92651
Undeniably the best deal on the ocean! Reminiscent of classic sea villas along the Mediterranean Riviera, this finely appointed estate presents uncommon privacy and superlative ocean views. Sited on a prime oceanfront parcel in private, gated Smithcliffs, the home graciously accommodates both family living and large scale entertaining within a 5 bedroom, 6 bath, 6,500sf plan. A stone Provence-style gatehouse opens into the palm courtyard with limestone fireplace and spa feature. Enter the soaring rotunda foyer and the home immediately opens to the ocean. Main level library, great room, formal dining, and gourmet country kitchen all enjoy fireplaces, views from every vantage point and merge seamlessly to outdoor verandas. An exquisite master retreat on upper level has private oceanfront terrace, Emperador marble bath and extravagant closet. Guest casita with private courtyard entry, fireplace and spa bath. Craftsmanship and layers of fine materials are articulated throughout including Beaumaniere limestone, quartzite, granite and marble, glazed cabinetry, French doors, eight artisan fireplaces, picture windows, honed wood beam ceilings, and extensive water purification and security systems. A beautiful living experience in convenient North Laguna Beach.
