About This 1930 Waterfront Mansion In Laguna Beach California
Powerful in its design and historic significance, this Mills Act oceanfront residence set on a 10,400+ sq parcel presents sprawling seaside living and the opportunity to expand and customize with plans by Morris Skenderian already approved by the City and Coastal Commissioner. Perfectly positioned away from the street and bluff within the coveted Rockledge enclave, this exemplary Spanish-revival style estate originally designed by architect Garret Van Pelt enjoys a setting of unrivaled beauty and privacy with idyllic grounds sheltered by mature landscaping.
True to Mediterranean-style living, the residence is introduced by a gated courtyard revealing the home’s explosive head-on views of the Pacific. While generous in size, the home emits a sense of intimacy and romance with classic design elements including arched windows and passages, wood-framed French doors, beamed ceilings and fireplaces finished in smooth stucco. Although built more than 9 decades ago, the home has been refit with modern amenities such as an elevator, library, billiard’s room, collector’s wine room and award-worthy home theater designed by Theos Kalomirakis, complete with a concession stand and lobby.
With white-water views from nearly every room and spacious grounds not often seen along the coastline, this enchanting residence promises a life of splendor. Mills Act tax incentives and access to the beach below via a gated staircase exclusive to Rockledge community residents are additional highlights.
