Description

The opportunity to own at Laguna Beach’s exclusive 22-home Smithcliffs enclave is among the rarest along the Southern California coastline, placing this inimitable custom compound in a genuine league of its own. Sequestered behind the gates atop soaring oceanfront bluffs, the unparalleled French Normandy mansion features an expansive two-parcel corner location that cannot be duplicated as well as three structures including a main home with 5 bedrooms and 3-car attached garage; a 1-bedroom, 1-bathroom detached guest house; and a secondary detached three-car garage crowned by a guest studio. Private patios, intimate terraces, lush lawns, and a grand pool and spa with waterfall rival nearby resorts in their beauty. The lavish detached guest house with separate entry offers an entertainment patio and an outdoor kitchen pavilion lends flair to large and small gatherings. Generous in size, the estate hosts an appropriately regal foyer that greets residents and guests with a double-height domed ceiling, circular staircase and inlaid mosaic tile. Formal rooms are opulent, including a living room with fireplace and an abundance of windows, and a large dining room with dry bar, wine cellar and French doors to the terrace. An office is adorned in rich wood wainscoting, and the main hall is gallery-sized, providing broad expanses for artwork. Truly exceptional, the family room and kitchen area is characterized by beamed ceilings, a built-in entertainment center with surround sound, five sets of French doors, a butler’s pantry, walk-in pantry, granite countertops, furniture-caliber custom cabinetry, hammered copper farmhouse sink, a breakfast area, and top appliances including a built-in refrigerator and a Wolf range. Comfort and privacy is ensured for all thanks to five bedrooms and six baths in the main home, including a first-level suite, a bonus-room style suite, and a primary suite with balcony, vaulted ceiling, fireplace, two walk-in closets, a soaking tub and separate rain shower. Appreciated features continue with a secondary staircase, a blend of travertine, wood and designer carpet flooring, whole-house audio, lighted art niches, fabulous tile, and designer paint and wall treatments. Adding to the allure of the home are two driveways offering 6 uncovered spaces in addition to the 6 garage spaces. The Smithcliffs community presents beach access and is close to John Wayne Airport as well as Laguna’s renowned collection of art galleries, restaurants and shops.
