Laguna Beach, CA 92651
Featured on the cover of the February 2017 issue of Architectural Digest, this one-of-a-kind, 1.25 acre, ocean view compound captures endless vistas of the coastline, ocean and islands – not to mention spectacular sunsets – from every vantage point. Nothing like this exists along the coastline of Orange County. Reached via a gated and private motor court, the main residence is a capacious and ethereal dwelling. Laid out on a single level, it opens to the expansive outside entertaining areas that surround it – all reveling in the views. Light, spacious and perfectly detailed, this home is the embodiment of California living. The magnificent gardens lead to a secluded and private garden oasis, replete with a lap pool and pavilion. Carefully blended into the landscape, this is a private haven where one can read a book – or host a hundred friends for a summertime poolside soirée. The separate guest house is comfortably appointed and features ocean + city views. Vision, passion, and refined study were combined into an alchemy here, the result of which is this sublime and understated retreat. It took more than a decade to complete this property, which will undoubtedly continue to provide an exceptional setting for all who have the pleasure of spending time here.
