With uncompromising style and a rich history, this legendary oceanfront estate on the northern shore of Laguna Beach displays a thorough update while remaining true to its Early California Mission heritage. Postcard views overlooking Shaw’s Cove stretch across the horizon to capture mesmerizing sunsets, breaking waves, the evening lights of Laguna Beach and the dramatic headlands of Dana Point. The multi-level residence, formerly home to one of Hollywood’s leading actresses, is terraced down a bluff and offers direct access to the beach below, with numerous decks and balconies offering outdoor enjoyment above the sea, and a spacious front courtyard with mature tropical landscaping for private entertaining. Tranquil interior spaces extend approx. 4,390 s.f. and feature a living room with fireplace and terrace access, a dining room with ornate custom ceiling, 5 bedrooms, 5 baths, an office with a bay window and built-in cabinetry, and a top-level bonus room with hand-painted beams enriching the vaulted ceiling. Custom antiqued-white cabinetry distinguishes a remodeled kitchen that hosts granite countertops, a Le Cornue range, built-in refrigerator and a wine cooler. Wood floors, period-perfect wrought-iron detailing, whole-house audio, crown molding and colorful Spanish tile stair risers lend style throughout the villa. A chic oasis awaits in the top-level master suite, complete with spectacular views from two sides, a romantic balcony, walk-in closet and elegant bath.
