North Laguna offers several locations where you can find beach front homes located directly on the sand. This area offers some of the most expensive homes in all of Orange County with beach front homes offered for as high as $49.5 million dollars. The two communities where you can find these beachfront homes is the Irvine Cove and Emerald Bay neighborhoods. Irvine Cove is home to the Irvine Family who own a small section of the neighborhood and have a private beach for themselves. The rest of the community is a mixture of homes located on the sand and in the hills offering wonderful views of the ocean. The Irvine Cove community is one of the most private neighborhoods in Laguna Beach with it's own secluded cove beach and guard gated entrance. There are currently two beachfront properties on the market right now that range from $29,500,000 to $49,500,000. I have personally been inside the home for $29 million and the views are simply amazing as pictured below. The home was built in 1976 and will need some updating to bring it to current modern standards. The location is really amazing as only a small handful of homes sit directly above the sand in Irvine Cove.
The Emerald Bay neighborhood is the other place to find beachfront homes in North Laguna. Similar to Irvine Cove, Emerald Bay is a private guard gated community with ocean front, beach front and ocean view properties. This is a slightly larger neighborhood with over 500 homes that enjoy a wide range of amenities and one of the most beautiful cove beaches in Southern California. There is one beachfront property on the market for sale here that is currently on the market for $26,500,000. The historic residence was built in 1948 and offers direct steps down to the sandy beach and is one of the few available ocean front properties that have ever come on the market in this community. Other notable places to find beachfront properties in the North Laguna area would be Marine and Cliff Drive. These are beautiful streets that are not located in any gated community but offer wonderful ocean and Catalina Island views. These are much lower in price as well and currently range $7,495,000 to $12,995,000 range. For more information on buying a home in Laguna Beach please call us at 949-355-1622 today.
