Owner info

Year Purchased: 1971

About the owner: Laguna native with love for design, collecting art, and creating a tropical paradise in my backyard. International traveler and former airline employee. Also an artist working in the medium of sculpting and jewelry.

Why the Owner Chose Mystic Hills (Laguna Beach, CA, USA):
My mother, a well-known So. California artist, fell in love with Laguna because it reminded her of the French Riviera. She bought this home because of its private setting and unique qualities like the natural backyard caves, large layout of home, and views of the ocean and beautiful surrounding valley. When I inherited this home, I updated the home to include a mixture of classic and modern styles. To pay tribute to my mother's artistry, you can find her gorgeous and whimsical hand-painted tiles incorporated in four of the home's bathrooms and her artwork throughout the house along with many other beautiful pieces by various artists. I used my love for traveling to exotic locales to create a lush, tropical setting in the backyard to transport myself and visitors to a colourful paradise.

The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
Private setting, pool and caves in the back yard. Spacious home and gourmet kitchen. Walking distance to the beach, art Festivals, central downtown and many amenities.
