Enjoy panoramic ocean and white water Laguna Beach views from this 1927 Spanish-Revival jewel box home situated on a beautiful lot in the heart of the historical village of Laguna Beach. Some of the most famous beaches in the world, tasty restaurants, art galleries and shopping are all within walking distance from this charming home.
The home has been lovingly updated and decorated by the owners, one of which is an interior designer. This home is a cozy, sophisticated beach house that includes white slipcovered sofas, crisp, luxurious bed linens, white fluffy bath towels, french doors, hardwood floors and traditional sotillo tiles throughout.
The main living room area has the original wood burning fireplace and a wall of french doors and windows looking out onto the deck and view. Curl up in the cozy down filled sofa or read a book next to the fireplace in the very cool rope arm chair.
Have fun cooking in an updated vintage styled kitchen with a fully restored O'keefe and Merrit stove, Fisher Paykel dishwasher, SMEG fridge, french bistro table and other charming details. Dine outside on the expansive decks or patios and watch the sunset...(both indoor and outdoor tables comfortably seat 8+) -this is outdoor living at its finest!
There is an enclosed lower garden and an inviting front courtyard and entry all with fountains that provide fantastic ambiance. Quiet and serene privacy is enhanced by the mature hedges and tropical landscaping.
Downstairs features french doors throughout, a wet bar and entertainment bar, 50' LG Plasma HDTV with full HBO cable package and DVR. The master bedroom is located on this level as well and features a king size four poster canopy bed, HD TV with full cable. French doors lead out to a private deck and large fountain. A second bath and laundry room with dual washer and dryers (fantastically convenient!) are also located on this level.
Take the big, beautiful woven tote basket for a walk down to Thalia Street Beach for a picnic or a full day at the beach. Cooler, beach chairs and beach towels are all provided as well. You will feel just like a local!
Rod, a native San Diegan, and Catherine a native Marinite have lived in several parts of the US, Europe and Asia and have owned this wonderful home since 2002. Catherine is an accomplished interior designer and together with Rod, has lovingly made this this home both livable and stylish. We love this home dearly and are excited to share it with those who are looking to experience this charming beach town.
Early 1930's photos of Laguna show that this home was among the very first in the area. A time when home owners could select the most stunning view locations among the ridge lines to build their homes. The fundamental architecture of this property has not changed since it was built from rough cut redwood 2' x 4', as its charm and character endure to provide you with a timeless, enchanting experience..
This is a wonderful property in a magical location! Before purchasing this home we did extensive terrain map studies and many walks through Laguna. This unique location on the exclusive culdisac portion of Lower Temple Hills Drive combines just the right elevation, presentation of Catalina Island and walking distance to the beach and town - our answer to perfection!
Tastefully private, and hidden behind a hedge, this property is tastefully hidden from the street. Once you step into the courtyard you are taken away to another time and feel the original charm and soul of this home. For those who value authentic California living and uncompromising views, you will find it almost impossible to leave!
Outdoor living at its finest from the Spanish courtyard with fountain and surrounding privacy hedges, entry courtyard with wall fountain, trellis and flowering vines to the view deck and private, enclosed lower garden with a third fountain outside the master bedroom's french doors.
Indoors, the home glows with cozy beach living that will allow you to relax and enjoy your time with friends and family.
