Description

This Classic Historic Mediterranean Revival home, perched high on a hill overlooks the village of Laguna Beach and panoramic views of the Pacific ocean from the arcaded porch and beamed ceiling living room. This majestic home, built in 1932 for J.W. Bishop, is still a beacon shining over the whitewater, coastline, city lights, and Catalina Island views that the original owner envisioned. This iconic three bedroom, three bathroom home was completely remodeled, upgraded and restored in 2018, while keeping a nod to its history. The interior now contains features for a discerning owner, featuring walnut & stone flooring throughout, gourmet kitchen with custom cabinetry and a La Cornue 36" range. The interior features chosen dramatically enhanced, and also added continuity, such as solid walnut doors and classic tiled bathrooms, all while maintaining the home's classic Spanish beauty.

The beauty continues just outside the back door, thanks to a large backyard dining area with fountain, spacious lawn and fire pit.

The arcaded porch, at the front of the home not only brings the ocean to you, but steps to the professionally designed landscaping, and lush front yard, with a second fire pit and two large seating areas . . . . perfect for watching and toasting to the magnificent sunsets.

One hundred and five ficus trees surround three sides of the home to provide privacy and elegance. Perfectly situated four blocks from Main Beach and three blocks from downtown, shopping, dining, and coastal activities. A Tesla charger has been added to the garage, and Halo water filtration throughout.

This one-of-a-kind gem is a one of a kind historic jewel is on the Historic Register and enjoys Mills Act benefits.
