40 N La Senda Drive
Breathtaking panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean surround this rare beachfront estate in the coveted seaside community of Three Arch Bay in Laguna Beach. Built in 1929 by Edward H. Griffith, a famous director and producer of the early American filmmaking era, this historically significant residential compound remains a treasured landmark along the Laguna Beach coast. Located at 40 N La Senda Drive, the four-bedroom, four-full-bathroom, two-partial-bathroom and approximately 3,545-square-foot residence resides cliffside and features a celebrated lighthouse and ocean-filled pool for $16,995,000.
“Gracefully situated above a private cove and completely immersed in nature, the home’s magnificent setting includes cobblestone paths that wind through the grounds, an oceanfront terrace spanning the width of the property and an awe-inspiring lighthouse,” said Tim Smith, the listing REALTOR® affiliated with the Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage Newport Beach office. “The historically significant residential compound has private steps that lead down to the sand and a swimming pool carved into the cliff’s side, which is refilled daily by ocean tides. This is an incredible opportunity to own a residence with endless possibilities in a setting of unrivaled beauty.”
The property encompasses three separate structures, which include two guest cottages and a nautical-style main house with reclaimed finishes. The main house has custom millwork, a cage elevator, porthole windows and a ship’s staircase. The lighthouse has a viewing room and bathroom. The property also has a six-car garage.
A seafarer’s oasis unlike any other, 40 N La Senda Drive is a priceless piece of Orange County history.
