Sweeping ocean views and rustic vibes create a classic beach cottage in this Laguna Beach home, with a location that’s off-the-beaten-path, but still conveniently close to the shopping, dining, and culture that makes Laguna iconic. On a hillside lot perched above the Pacific, views of blue waters and fiery sunsets are found throughout this spacious 2,112 s.f. +/- home, with 4 bedrooms, and 3 bathrooms. The spacious floor plan offers flexibility, with a separate entry to the lower level creating the opportunity to offer privacy to guests or extended family. An open concept living area has mid-century style, with a light-filled entry and dining area opening to a living room where a wood burning fireplace is lined by a wall of glass that lets in stunning views, salt air breezes, and sunny vibes. Wood cabinets and stainless-steel appliances create a functional kitchen, with panoramic ocean views making every day cooking an event to look forward to. Oversized floor-to-ceiling windows offer unobstructed vistas in an adjoining sunroom that could find use as an inspiring office space or artist’s studio, yoga or fitness space, or a relaxing lounge area. An expansive balcony offers views of Catalina, and an incredible place to bask in the sun with a cool drink. This fantastic outdoor space spans across the main living areas and connects to a main floor bedroom with vaulted ceilings and access to a hallway bathroom with stone surfaces. Three additional bedrooms and a bathroom are found on the lower floor, with features that include ocean views, vintage built-ins, and fantastic closet space. A backyard bursting with greenery and avocado and citrus trees is accessed by a spiral staircase from the upper deck, offering a private outdoor sanctuary. This artsy retreat is the key to a community where art, culture and playing in the sand create soulful living, and is just 5 minutes from Thalia Street beach, and close to all the delights of Laguna, including easy access to shopping, dining, and outdoor adventures.
