LAGUNA BEACH, CA — A home on Abalone Point in Laguna Beach is incomparable in views, location and luxe living, according to Realtor.com. It also will be the priciest home ever purchased in Orange County if it sells for the asking price of $60 million, according to a report from Mansion Global, and listing agent Andy Stavros of Douglas Elliman.
According to Stavros, the homeowner was approached many times during the coronavirus lockdown, and decided it was time to list.
“The overwhelming demand fueled the owners’ desire to list the home for sale, and helped determine our asking price,” Mr. Stavros told Mansion Global. To date, the priciest home ever sold in Orange County was a Newport Beach private residence that closed at $55 million, according to the report.
The views? Unmatched, spanning nearly from Palos Verdes Peninsula, along the Southern California coast, across two islands, the shimmering Pacific Ocean, magical sunsets and Crystal Cove.
Its location? Unsurpassed, at the end of a cul-de-sac 100′ directly above the ocean on the towering bluffs of ultra-exclusive Abalone Pointe in Laguna Beach’s guard-gated Irvine Cove enclave.
The residence? Where only the best will do. It is among the very finest on the coast, with dramatic soft-contemporary design and virtually unlimited indoor/outdoor flow. Approx. 13,000 square feet, the home hosts 6 ensuite bedrooms, 9 baths, a home theater, an ocean-view 2-lane bowling alley, a billiards room, office, chef’s kitchen with ocean-view nook, an enormous living room with 22′ ceiling and a formal dining room.
Imported from France, luxurious limestone flooring joins wood ceilings, custom lighting, handcrafted millwork and cabinetry, an elevator to all 3 levels, radiant heat flooring, numerous fold-away and sliding glass doors, skylights and handsome fireplaces throughout the home.
Sprawling outdoor decks and patios encompass nearly 4, 500 square feet and include the highest oceanfront view deck in Laguna Beach. Enviably private, the estate also features an infinity pool, spa, 3 fire pits and a 4-car garage.
Views from the interior of the upper level make it appear as though the home is floating on the ocean, while colorful landscaping complements the azure hues of the Pacific from lower levels.
