Laguna Beach is one of the few locations in Orange County, California where you can find homes that are located on the sand. Neighboring beach towns like Newport Beach will also have beach front homes but often times have a boardwalk right in front of them. Back in the 1960's it wasn't uncommon to build homes that were located literally on the sand in Laguna Beach. Popular neighborhoods like Victoria Beach are a perfect example of where you can find these beachfront homes that have a lot to offer. Of course, real estate in Laguna Beach is never cheap and you will pay a huge premium to have one located right on the beach. A great example of this is a new listing that just came on the market in Victoria Beach and located at 2800 Ocean Front. It features a total of 7 bedrooms, 8 baths with 6,000 square feet of living space. It's currently listed at $18,999,999 and has been on the market for 6 days.
Another great place to look for homes on the sand is the Laguna Village area of Laguna Beach. A perfect example of this is a home located at 943 Gaviota which features 3 bedrooms, 3 baths and 1,532 square feet. The multi-level home has a private beach access and a popular beach location along the coast. It's currently priced at $7,950,000 and is a great location for those who want to be within walking distance to the downtown area filled with great restaurants and shopping. One of the most coveted homes is located in the ultra-exclusive Irvine Cove gated community in Laguna Beach. 2431 Riviera Drive is a 10,000 square foot beach front estate home that's currently on the market for $44 million dollars. Irvine Cove sits next to Emerald Bay and is also a short distance to the Crystal Cove shopping area and beaches as well.
