Laguna Beach is both a 'get away' for locals from Orange County as well as a destination resort for global travelers. Half way between Los Angeles and San Diego, it offers convenient access within an hour or so from some of the finest entertainment anywhere, with an ocean breeze and birds' eye view of Catalina Island to welcome you back...
This property is ideally located for a balance of being in the beach scene, close to town, combined with spectacular, breathtaking views.
Year Purchased: 2002
About the owner: Roddy, a native San Diegan, and Catherine a native Marinite have lived in several parts of the US, Europe and Asia and have owned this wonderful home since 2002. Catherine is an accomplished home designer and together with Roddy, has lovingly made this this home both comfortable and stylish. We love this home dearly and are excited to share it with those who are looking to experience this charming beach town.
Why the Owner Chose Laguna Beach:
First of all, we couldn't resist the views. Secondly, early 1930's photos of Laguna show that this home was among the very first in the area. A time when home owners could select the most stunning view locations among the ridge lines to build their homes. The fundamental architecture of this property has not changed since it was built from rough cut redwood 2' x 4's, as its charm and character endure to provide you with a timeless experience. This is a wonderful property in a magical location! Before purchasing this home we did extensive terrain map studies and many walks through Laguna. This unique location on the exclusive culdisac portion of Lower Temple Hills Drive combines just the right elevation, presentation of Catalina Island and walking distance to the beach and town - our answer to perfection! Tastefully private, and hidden behind a hedge, this property is beautifully hidden from the street. Once you step into the courtyard you are taken away to another time and can instantly feel the original charm and soul of this home. For those who value authentic California living and uncompromising views, you will find that you won't want to leave!
The Unique Benefits at this House:
AMAZING VIEWS of the Pacific Ocean and Catalina Island!! The Spanish courtyard has a fountain and is encircled by mature hedges, entry courtyard has a wall fountain and flowering vines. The view deck and private lower garden have a third fountain outside the master bedroom's deck with mature hedges and vines throughout. Indoors, the home glows with cozy beach living that will allow you to relax and enjoy your time with friends and family.
