The opportunity to own at Laguna Beach’s extraordinarily exclusive Smithcliffs enclave is among the rarest along the Southern California coastline, placing this inimitable custom compound in a genuine league of its own. Sequestered behind the gates atop 200' oceanfront bluffs between Emerald Bay and Crown Point in North Laguna, the unparalleled French Normandy mansion features an expansive corner homesite that cannot be duplicated. Private patios, intimate terraces, lush lawns, and a grand pool and spa with waterfall rival nearby resorts in their beauty. Lavish guest quarters with separate entry from the street offers an entertainment patio and an outdoor kitchen pavilion lend flair to large and small gatherings. Approximately 8,970 square feet, the estate hosts an appropriately regal foyer that greets residents and guests with a double-height domed ceiling, circular staircase and inlaid mosaic tile. Formal rooms are opulent, including a living room with fireplace and an abundance of windows, and a large dining room with dry bar, wine cellar and French doors to the terrace. An office is adorned in rich wood wainscoting, and the main hall is gallery-sized, providing broad expanses for artwork. Truly exceptional, the family room and kitchen area is characterized by beamed ceilings, a built-in entertainment center with surround sound, five sets of French doors, a butler’s pantry, walk-in pantry, granite countertops, furniture-caliber custom cabinetry, an island, peninsula, hammered copper farmhouse sink, a breakfast area, and top appliances including a built-in refrigerator and a Wolf range. Comfort and privacy is ensured for all thanks to seven bedrooms and eight baths, including a main-level suite, a bonus-room style suite, and a primary suite with balcony, vaulted ceiling, fireplace, two walk-in closets, a soaking tub and separate rain shower. Appreciated features continue with a secondary staircase, attached three-car garage, a blend of travertine, wood and designer carpet flooring, whole-house audio, lighted art niches, fabulous tile, and designer paint and wall treatments. Adding to the allure of the home is its ample parking spaces with two three-car garages, and two driveways for parking up to six cars. Limited to just 22 residences, Smithcliffs presents beach access and is close to Crystal Cove, Newport Coast, and Laguna Beach’s renowned collection of art galleries, restaurants and shops. Award-winning public and private schools are nearby.
