Experience the exquisite beauty of this private coastal estate behind the gates of historic Smithcliffs in North Laguna Beach. Serenely located on one-half acre on the ocean side of PCH, this “compound” offers ultimate privacy and security. One must experience this rare one-of-a-kind estate which includes a 5-bedroom main house, separate maids’ quarters apartment, a private entrance guest house with a full Viking kitchen, a 50-foot lap pool, spa and an outdoor BBQ kitchen and cabana area. In the main residence, the gourmet chef’s kitchen features Wolf and Sub-Zero appliances which opens to the great room accented by wood beams and a warm fireplace. Numerous French doors open from the family room inviting you to bask in the resort-style garden lined entertainer’s backyard. On the upper level of the main house, the master suite is your sanctuary with French doors opening to a viewing terrace and a spa-inspired bath boasting a steam shower and soaking tub. The residence showcases a unique style that’s classic and European, yet comfortably modern at the same time. Just a short walk to all 5 beach coves of North Laguna, Heisler Park, and Main Beach, and minutes from all the amenities Newport Beach has to offer. This is a crown jewel of the California Riviera. Make no mistake—this rare property cannot be replicated anywhere in Laguna or Newport! - Appraisal attached in supplements.
