Property Details


JUST SOLD! Embark on a magical journey and lifestyle with this storybook cottage, an idyllic coastal haven for both summer and year-round living, nestled in coveted Three Arch Bay. This exquisite residence is one of the most enchanting cottages ever offered in Laguna Beach, promising a blend of beauty, sophistication, and luxury in an exclusive gated seaside community. A private courtyard gate opens to reveal this bespoke single-level residence, on the ocean side of PCH, ensuring tranquility and ease of access to the private beach and myriad of amenities. Following an extensive 2-year "down to the studs" renovation completed in 2020, this vintage beach house has been meticulously transformed into a magnificent dwelling that boasts 180+ degrees of ocean views, including a full panorama of Catalina Island, breathtaking sunsets and coastline vistas. Featured in a 10-page spread in Traditional Home magazine (2023), this gem celebrates a return to its glamorous circa 1930s roots. Every surface and system inside and out are new, as envisioned by the famed Designer for her own Laguna Beach retreat. Yet, amidst this comprehensive transformation, the original floors and fireplace stand as a testament to the home's rich history, infusing it with irreplaceable character and warmth. The interior showcases vaulted beamed ceilings, crisp white custom milled wood-clad walls, and cleverly hidden display/storage cabinets, creating a spacious and inviting ambiance. The living room is adorned with a bespoke hand-carved wood fireplace surround and enjoys direct access to the panoramic view deck and lush backyard. The well-appointed kitchen features a luxe Lacanche 5-burner gas range and opens to a sunny breakfast/bistro room overlooking the aromatic garden courtyard. A secret green lacquered "speakeasy" bar is concealed in the new formal dining room. Every detail, from the curated collection of stone and hardware reclaimed from Europe, to the antique fixtures and artisan finishes, imbues this home with unique refinement and timeless charm. This residence is not just a place to live but a work of art and destination retreat that stands unparalleled, offering a rare opportunity to own a piece of Laguna Beach's heritage. A detailed features list and video tour are available to provide a closer look into this extraordinary property, inviting you to become part of its storied legacy.
