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

One of the luxury's of buying a home in Laguna Beach is the extra perks that a home comes with.  Some of the most requested items are three to four garage plus home, wine cellar, gym, home theater and luxury pool and spa.  If you are wine enthusiast then buying a home with a custom wine cellar should be on your list.  Not all Laguna Beach homes will come with this unique feature so it's to work with a local realtor who knows the homes currently for sale that have this feature.  Contemporary and Mediterranean style luxury homes will typically tend to have wine cellars compared to other architectural style homes.   As a rule of thumb the more expensive the home is the better the chance the home will have these unique features.  Homes over $10 million
