Home Of The Week
104 South La Senda Drive
Gracious, elegant and tranquil, this traditional-style Three Arch Bay estate is perched on a spectacularly scenic bluff overlooking a secluded cove, the Salt Creek coastline, Dana Point headlands, Catalina Island and the vast blue Pacific Ocean. Designed for comfortable indoor-outdoor living and sophisticated entertaining, the home features high ceilings, beautiful wood cabinetry and wainscoting, as well as leaded glass windows, peg-and-groove floors and generous windows and doors that allow exceptional water views.
The main level includes an arched entry door, a two-story chandelier foyer, a large living room with a fireplace set in a carved wooden mantelpiece, a handsome paneled library with custom built-ins, a formal dining room with coffered ceiling and marble inset flooring and a spacious great room. With exposed beams and stenciled ceiling details, this peaceful space is comprised of a lovely family room and an eat-in country kitchen with a large brick hearth, butcher block island, walk-in pantry, top-grade stainless appliances and a built-in desk alcove. Completing the main floor is a laundry room and an en-suite bedroom with a charming spiral staircase leading to a loft/study/office.
Above a staircase illuminated by a gorgeous leaded-glass bay window, the home’s upper floor has three en-suite ocean-view bedrooms, including a romantic master suite with a sitting area. Doors from the living room and great room open onto an ocean-view terrace and lawn framed by stately trees, perfect for lounging, al fresco dining and star-gazing.
Additional features include a three-car garage and Three Arch Bay community amenities, such as tennis court, sports court, playground and clubhouse. Set on over a quarter-acre of prime coastline, this is a home of exceptional quality and character on Southern California’s most desirable shore.
