Elevating the stylish yet carefree way of life for which Laguna Beach is famous, this impeccably reimagined home is among the very finest in the hilltop enclave of Arch Beach Heights. Panoramic ocean, Catalina, evening-light and shoreline views stretch to Long Beach Harbor and the bluffs of Palos Verdes Peninsula, creating a background for gracious living and entertaining that is akin to a vibrant, ever-changing watercolor. Enjoy two ensuite bedrooms and a lower level office that can easily become a third bedroom. A double-height entry with timeless Dutch door and a curving staircase leads to a main open-style living area that seamlessly blends a fireplace-warmed living room with retractable TV and a dining room with seating for 10. The living room opens to an inviting view deck with automatic awning, and the dining room adjoins a gorgeous chef-inspired kitchen with two islands soapstone countertops, white cabinetry, a 6-burner Dacor cooktop, Viking refrigerator, wine cooler, walk-in pantry and an ocean-view BBQ deck. Interiors reflect the renowned talents of designer Michael Fullen, who incorporated Brazilian cherry wood floors, custom lighting and artisan-caliber millwork throughout. Enchanting ocean views complement a primary suite with a marble-embellished bath and a deck that features a spiral staircase to the backyard below. The office also opens to the private backyard, where brick decking, a custom wall fountain and professional lighting create a welcoming vibe.
