Among the upper echelon of California’s exclusive coastal estates, this multi-level residence was custom-crafted to savor ocean views from every room in its sprawling floor plan. Located at the southern end of Laguna Beach in guard-gated Three Arch Bay, this architectural masterpiece presents panoramic ocean, whitewater, cliff, sunset and Catalina Island views from its stunning beachfront setting. An abundance of covered terraces, including one that exudes tranquility with a towering rock waterfall, combine with a beautifully landscaped yard and spacious lawn in creating a sublime indoor/ outdoor living experience.
The outdoor living space has multiple areas for lounging or alfresco dining under the sun or stars, as well as an oceanfront spa that’s perfect for soaking in gorgeous sunsets. The property also offers a gentle path, without steps, leading to a quiet, secluded shoreline.
Inside this magnificent home, you’ll discover a phenomenal entry, formal dining room with wine storage cabinets, large pub-style wet bar, a great room and a true chef’s kitchen with a brick-finished barrel ceiling, large island, imported granite countertops, walk-in pantry, stainless steel appliances, including a six-burner gas range and double oven, and a breakfast nook boasting ocean vistas with a door leading to an expansive terrace. The private and luxurious master suite features a view balcony, walk-in closet, leaded-glass windows, jetted tub and steam shower.
An elevator serves all levels of the expansive residence, which features wood and stone flooring, high-beamed ceilings, arched windows, designer paint and four fireplaces. There is also a three-car garage.
Private and peaceful, Three Arch Bay was named for a natural formation of a cliff side that forms three arches over the beach. The exclusive community includes such recreational amenities as lighted tennis courts and a children’s playground area. A short distance down the Pacific Coast Highway is the vibrant Dana Point Harbor, which offers fishing and whale watching excursions, numerous water activities, and a variety of dining and shopping options.
