An exquisite jewel of a home located in the coastal paradise of north Laguna Beach. Just one row back from the crashing ocean, enjoy the quiet and security of this superb gated Smithcliffs community. This lovely estate lies next door to Emerald Bay and you enjoy easy access to both Laguna Beach and Newport Beach. Enter massive polished wood doors to a lovely foyer that leads to a stunning, spacious living room with gorgeous fireplace, and it looks out to the ocean. The dining room is wonderful for entertaining and has its own wet bar. The kitchen has a glorious breakfast nook and also opens to the GreatRoom/Family Room. Lined with bookcases and a massive fireplace, this is a place for utter relaxation. The bright and light Sunroom is a delight for soaking in sun and reading a book, or sharing cups of tea. A wonderful guest room has French doors that open to the rear garden and one feels as if Europe and the coast lie outside the door. Take the elevator to the upper level and find the incredible entertaining deck complete with fireplace, Ocean View, dining table with drapes, and a huge pine tree that provides an umbrella of branches and beauty that is beyond words. Huge, mature trees line this entire neighborhood of only 25 homes, and give an estate feel that is very rare in Orange County. You feel you are in the most established of neighborhoods. A beach path takes you to a beach look-out where you can enjoy a glass of wine or a cocktail overlooking glorious beach coves.
