Blending the rewards of an ocean view location with romantic Mediterranean-inspired architecture and an exclusive address behind the gates of Laguna Beach’s Smithcliffs enclave, this custom estate is among the region’s finest. Generously proportioned at approximately 4,000 square feet, the Bill Barringer-designed architectural masterpiece is introduced by a stunning exterior with slate roof, a grand staircase to the main entrance, a vine-covered turret, copper rain gutters, a long driveway winding under a porte cochere to a private motor court, and meticulously maintained mature landscaping. Abundant natural light, open spaces, handsome archways, and a mix of slate, tile, wood and patterned carpet flooring create an air of sophistication throughout the residence, which offers 4 bedrooms, 5.5 baths, a pool room and separate guest suites. Opening to backyard’s pool and spa, your luxurious master suite features a 2-side fireplace that warms both the bedroom and the bath, where a sit-down vanity, spa tub and multi-head walk-in shower provide personal pampering. Entertain stylishly in the casual wing, complete with a family room with fireplace, a breakfast room with access to an ocean-view deck with built-in BBQ, and a remodeled chef’s kitchen with exotic granite surfaces, furniture-caliber cabinetry, a double-size built-in refrigerator, an island with bar-height seating, and a built-in gourmet coffee station. Exuding charm and unparalleled curb appeal, the custom estate provides the ultimate indoor/outdoor setting, with French doors in nearly every room opening to patios, decks and gardens. Located on the northern bluffs of Laguna Beach, Smithcliffs is moments from coves and beaches, outstanding schools, and fine dining and shopping in Laguna and Crystal Cove.
