The estate on Arroyo Chico is perhaps one of the most unique properties available today along this rarified patch of coastline. This property is a magical oasis tucked just blocks away from the best beaches, restaurants and shops Laguna Beach has to offer, but feeling worlds apart. Comprised of two separate parcels totaling just under an acre, the property holds a four bedroom main house, a guest house, a carriage house currently used as a pool house/games room, and one of the largest private pools in town (local lore says it was the original municipal pool for the city). Completely reimagined and updated by the current owners, the gated estate exudes a casual sophistication and ease of living that personifies the beach lifestyle. During the day, the property is a sun-filled, windows-open retreat with terrific privacy. At night, the estate becomes magical as dusk sets in and the lights come up. Entertain under a giant wisteria-covered outdoor dining room with a table for up to 30 or more for large scale entertaining, or cozy up for conversation with friends in any of the intimate spaces indoors and out. The kitchen forms the stunning heart of the home - open to the great room, and outfitted to a high level. There are only a handful of estate-sized properties in this prime area of Laguna Beach - Arroyo Chico is a rare opportunity to own one of these special properties.
