Nestled among some of the most valuable oceanfront estates in California, this prime bluff-top gated property combines an understated beach elegance with a bit of classic Laguna artistry. Originally conceived by one renowned California architect (Fred Briggs, recognized as an Architectural Digest Top 100 architect) and more recently updated and expanded by another (Christopher Light), ‘Greenstone by the Sea’ is a masterful combination of disappearing glass, vast ocean expanses, and tremendous outdoor decks and terraces. The vast view frontage and a comfortable, eminently livable open floorplan provides ocean views and outdoor terraces and decks from almost every room in the house – a rarity for oceanfront homes. A gated drive and motor court lead to an oversized three car garage entering on the primary mid living level. A stunning two story glass-enclosed staircase and an artisan-crafted beveled glass door highlight views through the home to the ocean beyond as you approach the entry. The living level, finished in a soothing combination of luxurious textures and colors, highlight the oceanfront location. Dining and a bespoke kitchen with all top-line appliances are each distinct from the living area but visually open presenting an incredible ocean view sweep from this level. The lower-level hosts four of the bedrooms including the primary suite - a generously sized retreat unto itself. With walls of glass and phenomenal design detail, the results of the architectural pedigree are on full display. The fifth bedroom, along with an office or gym space, spa bath with steam and sauna, and a ‘sky terrace’ finish the upper level of the home, with separation from the remainder of the living spaces (for a home office, or living quarters nicely set apart). As remarkable as the interior spaces are - it is the terraces and view decks that take the estate to another level. With space for large scale entertaining, the outdoor spaces also lend themselves to very intimate vignettes – coffee off the kitchen, a private area off the primary suite, a wonderful fire feature that invites you to enjoy a slow sunset. Natural landscape from the edge of the terraces to the blufftop provides a beautiful frame for the Pacific view. A substantial estate, usable as a primary residence or a secondary home with many features to facilitate part-time residency. Rarely does an oceanfront estate with such an architectural provenance, stunning locale, and gracious livability come to market.
