There might be other beach houses more primely located than this oceanfront property in Laguna Beach, California...but it's doubtful. The four-bedroom, 6,000 square-foot home sits right on the beach's edge of Lagunitas and is a hop, skip and jump away from the luxe Montage Resort.
The glass fence creates soft screening between the front yard, pool, house and the public sidewalk. It also provides shelter from the salt-laden wind for the veggie beds and a couple of small fruit trees. Salvaged grape stake fencing keeps dogs out of the veggie beds, without discouraging a neighborly chat or exchange of produce.
This spectacular home combines elegance with contemporary style. The open living plan includes a well-positioned dining area, an accessible kitchen and hardwood floors throughout the space. With floor-to-ceiling windows, the home's ocean and beach view create a pop of vibrant color against the taupe color palette of the living space.
The back deck takes perfect advantage of the afternoon sun. With lounge chairs, umbrellas, tables and a beautiful ocean view, this space is the perfect place to spend every sunny afternoon either alone or with friends.
At just under 1,000 square feet, designers had a lot of function to fit into a small space. The homeowners wanted to keep the original structure of the home their grandfather built, but they wanted it updated to include a functional kitchen, living areas and bedrooms, so designers created living spaces with an open concept on the beach side to take advantage of the home's magnificent beach view. Then, they tucked as many beds as possible in the second half of the house so that the entire family would have a place to sleep when the family visited the house.
Designed with relaxation in mind, this British Virgin Islands waterfront property boasts three 8,000-square-foot villas each with access to the private beach area and unobstructed views of the breathtaking Sir Francis Drake Channel. Multiple lounge areas offer a place to relax outdoors.
