Once when you thought a great listing had been sold and no longer available it comes back on the market for sale.  This is the case of the famous "Rock House" that is located at 31107 Coast Highway in Laguna Beach.  Back in November of 2014 is the first time we saw this very unique oceanfront home come on the market that featured curved rooms and angular architectural details that would make this an "ultra-contemporary" home in most design conversations.  At that time the home was on the market for $15,000,000 which was a very aggressive price considering a lot of ocean front properties in that time frame were selling between $5 to $8 million dollars.  The home was on the market for almost a year and had one price reduction down to $12 million which did

Ultra Contemporary is often a phrase used for modern homes that are done to the extreme. Laguna Beach is truly the meca for contemporary style homes that range anywhere from soft contemporary to an ultra design.  Due to the natural topography of the hillside in Laguna Beach a large majority of these stunning architectural homes will have views of the  Pacific Ocean.  The sandy beach and gentle waves are a perfect backdrop for these properties that are located in one of the most prime locations in all of Southern California.

The price of real estate doesn't come cheap for these types of homes as land is very expensive in Laguna Beach.  The cost of building the home also has to be a consideration as construction costs tend to be very high in this area.

Laguna Beach has always had a lot of homes designed in both the Modern and Contemporary architectural design.  The city is very much an artistic town with art festivals and galleries with residents who appreciate and enjoy the modern style.  In Southern California the beach towns of La Jolla and Laguna Beach have the highest concentration of modern homes but none more breathtaking than the ocean view homes that can be found in Laguna.

The best areas to find these beautiful homes would be in the three main areas by the beach which consist of South Laguna, The Laguna Village and North Laguna.  In South Laguna, look for communities like Arch Beach Heights, South Laguna Village and Alta Vista which has a large number of modern homes that overlook the

Camel Point is a quiet residential neighborhood of 15 homes located in a premier oceanfront location.  The community offers 8 homes located on the ocean front with an additional 7 ocean view properties.  This is a small gated community that offers direct access down to the beach as pictured below.  Since the community is home to only 15 properties homes rarely come on the market here.  The neighborhood has a nice mixture of contemporary as well as older historic homes.  An ocean view property is now being offered for sale for $4,595,000.  I had a chance to preview this home and the 5 bedroom home really did offer nice views of the ocean. 

The views are mainly over the rooftops of the properties located on the oceanfront as pictured below.  In addition,

The Mystic Hills area of Laguna Beach is one of my favorite areas with beautiful luxury homes that grace the hillside that sits directly above the downtown area.  Some of the first homes in this area were built in the mid 1920's and offered prime views of the valley and ocean.  In the 1960's we saw a big spike in the number of properties being built in this prime location and new construction continues to this day as Mystic Hills is considered one of the top areas to live.

The community is non-gated and and located approximately 10 minutes to the beach.  It adjoins the Park Avenue Estates and Top of the World communities and sits directly across the valley from the upscale Temple Hills community.  Lower Mystic Hills homes offer quick access to the
