Written By: Angela Hatcher Laguna Beach Home
It is rare to find an exclusive French Provencial-inspired beauty of this magnitude with a Laguna Beach seaside address. However, this private landmark estate not only offers panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean, it is also surrounded by 12 glorious rolling acres of wide open space. With its own spectacular vineyard featuring merlot, chardonnay and cabernet grapes from the famous wine region of Temecula and a stunning hillside setting, this exceptional find is the ultimate in Southern California luxury living. Sitting on just under an acre, this three-story approximately 10, 000 square foot property features some of the most up-to-the-minute design elements and amenities that, up-to-now, could only be imagined.

Renowned and highly sought after local architect Jim Conrad is the visionary who lovingly designed this home in 2013. This spectacular home blends function and design with a slice of French Provencial paradise. Offering the best of nature’s rustic beauty—lush greenery, lovely trees and fragrant purple lavender dotting the country hillside—dramatic sunsets atop ocean views are not to be missed in this stately home. With a colorful terracotta tiled roof, beautiful scrolled wrought iron stair rails and accents throughout the interior and exterior of the home, impressive hardwood beams, soft muted tones featured inside and out and rich hardwood floors, the spirit of this impressive home harmonizes with the sheer beauty of its natural environment.
The 7-bedroom, 9-bathroom estate features everything from a great room to a walk-in pantry to an elevator and a complete gym. Those who love hosting dinners will enjoy the formal dining room, wet bar, home theater and impressive wine cellar. Along with the home’s strategically placed recessed lighting, elegant sparkling chandeliers adorn many of the rooms throughout the home. Large scale living and entertaining areas boast soaring cathedral vaulted ceilings lending an even greater sense of openness to the majestic ultra-luxe living design. The wall of doors in the stylish family room opens up entirely and the pocket doors disappear to reveal the outdoor living room with built in seating area and entertainment dream space. A cozy fireplace sets the evening’s mood for a spontaneous soiree, leisurely outdoor dining, casual social gathering or a celebration with friends and family. Laguna Beach Home
The outdoor bar is fully equipped and the perfect spot for whipping up a batch of margaritas, a couple of mimosas on a lazy Sunday afternoon or stirring up a jug full of refreshing iced tea. For throwing some burgers or chicken on the grill, veggies or kabobs, or perhaps, a couple of steaks, the top of the line barbeque is just the thing to keep dinner guests and family enjoying a casual meal and dining on romantic stone terraces after a day of frolicking in the sun. The fun begins in the fabulous jaw-dropping infinity pool that gives the appearance of a giant wall of water spilling directly into the sea and creating an instantaneous prologue to the breathtaking panoramic ocean view below. This gorgeous work of art is the ultimate water retreat, and a dazzling and dramatic fire and ice display dancing at the edge of the patio is the punctuation mark to a warm California summer’s eve. The beautiful and relaxing spa with a waterfall may be just the thing to draw a close to a perfect day. Laguna Beach Home
For the cook who prefers preparing food indoors, the full chef’s kitchen with adjacent bar is not only aesthetically beautiful, but it may also inspire the novice cook or the expert chef to try out a new recipe; perhaps a crème brulee dessert or a Daube Provencial stew? Top of the line appliances from a professional stove to a double sink oversized white Carrara marble topped kitchen island and countertops complete the look of the welcoming French farm-styled open kitchen space. The baths feature everything from a bidet to gold gilded accented cabinetry to large spaces with European inspired claw foot tubs and double sinks with wall-to-wall vanity mirrors. Laguna Beach Home
With its “French country” backdrop, there are views from every level of the home and whether it’s watching the sunrise in the morning, enjoying the sea’s ebb and tide flow in the afternoon, or unwinding as the sun sets at day’s end and the city’s lights glow in the evening sky, sunlight and moonlight fill this home with some of nature’s finest gifts. C’est la belle vie!

France comes to Laguna Beach with this Provencial Seaside Home
Angela is a writer who fell in love with live theatre at an early age. She majored in English in college, and it was then that she began corresponding with the late contemporary humorist, Erma Bombeck. After purchasing one of Bombeck’s books, Angela discovered that the binding was askew, and Bombeck convinced her that life did not end after page 190! Angela has written theatre reviews for about a decade, and an editor once told her that her “ebullience comes through her writing and is like watching a child whoop and holler on her first trip to an amusement park.” This is one ride she’s never getting off! Angela lives in Huntington Beach, is happily married to a drummer/percussionist and has recently purchased a great pair of ear plugs! She loves all the “girly” stuff - fashion, jewelry, and makeup, but her undying passion is theatre and travel. When not in a theatre, you will find her anywhere there is surf and sand.
