About Mark Sankey
This is the cherished home I grew up in as a young boy. I purchased it recently from my parents and have commenced to remodel it with pride and joy. The private Shores commmunity was chosen by my parents to raise me and my 3 siblings due to the safe private beach and gate guarded community with private clubhouse. For families with children - this is the ultimate vacation destination along the coast. I'm a UCLA All-American Swimmer and continue to do lots of off shore swimming here on the Strands beach. The water is fantastic for surfing, diving and stand up paddle boarding. I'm into sailing - the nearby Dana Point Marina (30 minute coastal walk south) is a great plance to visit the Ocean Institute or take whale watching tours. The village of Laguna - which we spend 2-3 nights a week dining out - is just a 10 minute drive to the North. The Ritz Carlton and St REgis resorts are directly adjacent to our community. Breakfast or sunset at the Ritz looking out along the coast is one of the all time best ocean views I've seen anywhere. I was a composition major at UCLA - so my Steinway at the house is important to me and I'm happy to share it with visiting guests who love playing the piano in a magical environment. For musicians staying - there's nothing mor enjoyable than gathering around the fireplace at night and enjoying some time at the piano.
Mark Sankey purchased this house in 1974
