In December of 2008, a devastating fire destroyed the home located on this gorgeous hilltop property in Laguna Beach. The 4,145 sq.ft. home built in its place is an elegant replacement, taking advantage of the sublime views and providing space for entertaining as well as for quiet family life. On the entrance level, the living area, dining area and kitchen open completely via an aluminum clad wood sliding pocket door system to a large deck. The lower levels include family bedrooms and guest bedroom and the master suite. Each room has privacy, deck access and drop dead views. The garden below the decks is extraordinary, providing a lovely setting for family and friends, a place for contemplation and for observation of the green space and ocean beyond, even a cave! The street side of the house is carefully designed to be both welcoming and to give a sense of privacy.
