$2,880,000 31842 National Park Drive, Laguna Niguel, CA 92677
Designed by renowned architect George Bissell, and upgraded from the studs up by Moss Yaw Design to perfection, this iconic Mid-century modern home inspires elevated living with courtyard pool views of golden hillsides and walls of glass that reflect its garden's vibrant palette. Screened by a monolithic sculptural black brick wall and modern landscaping with address monument, this 4 bedroom, 2.5 bath home offers privacy and resort lifestyle. Inside the 500SF gated entry courtyard, the muted quiet of smooth lime washed stucco is the perfect backdrop to the sound of waterfalls cascading into the sparkling pool. A covered patio retreat is surrounded by Arcadia windows, including a sliding glass ''curtain'' window wall, offering a view through the reimagined Atomic Ranch living room - with vaulted wide beamed ceilings, wall of windows and stacked brick fireplace with floating hearth - to the peaceful back yard. Both outside and in, this property imparts an unreasoning sense of luxury; cool large-format porcelain tile floors extend an expanse of soft organic color from the exterior throughout, and a flood of natural light and fresh air flow from top-hung casement windows capture the coastal breeze. The colors here are sexy; shy tones of blush, rich deepwater greens, stern dark gray. Texture and reflective elements found in artfully selected tile ignite interest. Kitchen and baths are updated to perfection with Scavollini cabinetry, Brizo fixtures and Emtek solid brass hardware, with kitchen and hidden pantry coffee bar featuring Miele and Gaggeneau appliances, quartz countertops and punctuated Lee Broom pendant lighting. Primary bedroom boasts custom Sangiacomo closets as well as vanity in en-suite spa bath, with freestanding Badeloft tub, zero-entry 4'x6' shower and dual sinks. Three additional bedrooms on the opposite wing of the house all enjoy garden views. The largest showcases wide center beam and trapezoid window plus a wall of glass that overlooks the sanded meditation garden. Exterior spaces are planned for entertaining; expansive back patio with architectural steel beam detail, fire pit area with warm wood planking, and pool deck with cantilevered ceiling and radiant outdoor heater. Beach and hiking trails are easy to access with Salt Creek Beach just over a mile away. Life here is a Southern California dream realized. Upgraded systems. Solar.
