Written By: Angela Hatcher
Located in an exclusive Southern California gated community, walking distance to the famous Montage Laguna Beach, this breathtaking Balinese-inspired, one-of-a-kind beauty is a true Laguna Beach masterpiece. Completed in 2011, this astonishing work-of-art boasts five bedrooms, five-and-a-half baths and an attached three-car garage on a 10, 019 square foot lot. Closely connected within the wonder of the ebb and flow of the ocean’s tide and the ever-changing colors of the vibrant California sky, this beachfront estate is the ultimate in coastal living.

From every floor of this three-level custom residence, a front row seat to the magnificence of the Pacific Ocean awaits. With a large open floor plan, there is an overwhelming sense of tranquility and peace, and ultimately, with perfectly designed walls of glass, a feeling of contentment, and a sense of being one with nature is wondrously captured throughout every room of the estate. The synchronization of the indoor/outdoor lifestyle brings in the natural environment with its lighting, beautiful sunsets, and soft gentle breezes, while the home also offers the ultimate in modern design, upscale details, and luxury living. The enclosed courtyard located at the main entrance is covered in beautiful natural limestone flooring that continues throughout all of the exterior spaces of the estate including the terraces, the outdoor built-in bench, fully equipped outdoor kitchen/barbeque, staircases and stairwells.

From the beauty of the flooring to the crown moldings and lattice styled doors, stunning fine mahogany wood enriches the soft café au lait colored walls of the main living space with its rich patina and dark richness of the wood, and with sleek modern light fixtures strategically casting a glow on the formal living room, and enormous walls of glass in the forefront, the picturesque seascape panorama embraces a lifestyle that is beyond measure. To the right of the main living area is a large modern understated dining area that features another giant picture postcard view of the sea. A fully loaded dream kitchen houses a complete array of upscale state-of-the-art appliances that are entirely tucked away behind mahogany cabinetry and housed below granite countertops and a large gourmet island. The matching backsplash adds a nice symmetry to the look. The professional Viking chef’s stove is perfect for creating a gourmet luncheon for 12 or for whipping up a quick snack for two on a cool evening while relaxing and watching the tide roll in.
The cozy media room/home theater and great room are divine and dressed with automated muted tone draperies and an easy to control retractable wall-to-wall screen. The bedroom suites are all roomy, serene, and peaceful and each shares soft wall coloring and the feeling of airiness. The spacious master bedroom with an oversized corner set fireplace is another spectacular room that has an adjoining balcony perfect for stargazing on a moonlit night. The huge walk-in closets are a dream come true and are equipped with drawers, shelves, and various places for neat storage–all made in the same rich mahogany as the rest of the home.
The “Smart” home also has a high end automation system that can control all the audio/video systems, HVAC, security, lighting, shades, sauna, spa, gates, door locks and more. The automation system consists of touchpanels and iPads with control through AMX. The lighting control is a high-end Lutron Homeworks system with special floor sensors that turn on lights as you walk through the house. All AV equipment is state of the art quality and custom built into the home cabinetry, woodwork, walls, etc. The systems make it easy to live in a home with high end technology.
All of the outdoor features are outfitted with solid copper fittings that have beautifully patinaed over time and they sit in perfect harmony with the limestone patios, terraces and deck. There is a modern sauna and a bubbling spa that features one to-die-for “stand-up corner” as a dedicated “therapeutic” space, and there are strategically placed jets ready to provide a full body massage at the end of a long day or an afternoon of fun in the surf. While enjoying a soothing soak in the spa, there is a built-in TV at your service to catch up on favorite shows or watch favorite sporting events. Brimming with exceptional finishes and special elements, an extraordinary layout, and a beachfront setting, this unforgettable resort style residence is one that summons the soul, and in the spirit of coastal living, this is a perfect place to call “home.”
