Property description

This unique Laguna home is set on a beautiful half acre that backs up to a gorgeous pristine canyon. The house, built behind high walls, has a gated entry that opens into a quiet, secluded garden.

The kitchen, with it's granite island and six burner gas range, is a cook's paradise. We've outfitted our kitchen with the finest knives, cookware and dishes. A french door refrigerator with ice maker is located in the pantry next to a large wine cooler with separate storage for white and red. The bar on one side of the granite island is the perfect place to sip morning coffee while watching the news on the flat screen TV at the end of the kitchen.

Both the master bedroom and first guest room have king sized beds. The third bedroom is a queen. All the bedrooms have flat screen televisions with DVD players.

We stock beach equipment for our tenants, chairs, beach bags, towels, umbrellas and children's toys.

The house is light filled and airy with beautiful views in every direction. Look to the canyon and down to the sea or turn back to gaze at the flower filled garden courtyard with its bird bath and giant birds of paradise.

Alta Laguna Park is just up the hill from the house. There are six public tennis courts, biking and hiking trails, a baseball park, basketball courts and a terrific children's playground.

Our home offers the peace of a retreat but is only minutes away from downtown Laguna and the beaches.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: I grew up in Laguna. My family has been in Laguna for over a hundred years. This was my mother's beloved home, designed and built by my architect brother in 1974. We live in Oregon most of the year where my husband has a practice.

Why the Owner Chose Laguna Beach:
When we inherited this property it seemed wise to sell but first we needed to remove the thirty year old green shag carpet, the green pebbled vinyl flooring, the flocked wallpaper and 25 shell collages adorning the walls. Once this was done an incredibly beautiful house emerged. Our next goal was to regain the view. We negotiated with our neighbor to trim his trees and removed the inner courtyard jungle, planting grass with flower boarders to create a quiet garden for our guests. And we fell in love with the house and couldn't part with it even though we're not able to visit very often.
