Laguna Beach is one of the few beach cities where you will find a large number of historic ocean front homes for sale. One of the reasons was that homes date back to the early 1900's as Laguna Beach was considered one of the most desirable 2nd home locations from those who lived in the Los Angeles area. Many of these older homes still exist and mainly can be found in the South Laguna and Laguna Village areas. Oceanfront homes in Laguna normally will start above the $5 million dollar price point with current historic ocean front homes starting at $5,950,000. The size of these homes can really vary with some properties being under 2,800 square feet of living space while others will be much larger and incorporate a guest house with an average 5,000 square feet.
We determine "historic" to be for homes built before 1940. Of course, many mid-century modern homes built in the 1950's are now being considered "historic" but for our purposes we have chose to showcase homes before 1940. Currently, there are 7 historic homes on the market located in the Three Arch Bay, Rockledge Terrace and in the South Laguna area. We found one property located in the North Laguna gated community known as "Emerald Bay" which is priced at $34,000,000. This historic home was built in 1932 and covers over a half acre of land is located in one of the most expensive gated communities in Laguna Beach. There even some historic homes currently on the market that come with their own lighthouse! Below is the current available list of these older ocean front homes.
