Living in Laguna Beach gets you accustomed to many architectural styles that include Mediterranean, Spanish and lots of Contemporary homes.  One of the few architectural styles you don't commonly see is a home built in a Farmhouse style.  A new listing has come on the market in the Smithcliffs gated community in Laguna Beach and is described as being built in the French Farmhouse architectural style.  I have to admit I have never heard of a French Farmhouse architecture before but after doing some research I learned that it derives inspiration from the French Country style which offers a relaxed but elegant style with vaulted ceilings and top of the line finishes.  Often the walls and valued ceilings are painted white to make the space feel even bigger.

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,

Another $50 million dollar plus home has come on the market in the exclusive Irvine Cove community in North Laguna Beach. 2431 Riviera Drive has just hit the market for $55 million dollars and is listed by Hilton & Hyland.  What makes this home unique is the location. Laguna Beach has very few beach front homes that sit directly on the beach and are located in a gated community. 2431 Riviera Dr features 180 feet of water frontage, arguably in one of the best communities in Laguna Beach and is one of only 5 beach front homes in the entire Irvine Cove community.

The home features six bedrooms with 10,000 square feet of living space with vaulted wood beam ceilings, sliding glass doors that open to the pool & spa. Some of the highlights of the home

Irvine Cove in North Laguna is one of the best kept secrets in Laguna Beach for home buyers looking to live in an exclusive gated community.  One of the main reasons most people have not seen this beautiful community in beach is due to the 24 hour guard gate that only allows entrance for residents and their guests.  The beach is surrounded on by majestic cliffs on both sides of the beach that don't allow access from adjoining beaches.  In the summer time you will see boats and yachts passing by but for the most part the views are only enjoyed by residents of Irvine Cove.

Located in the South Laguna Area is a gated community called Three Arch Bay.  As with most luxury gated communities in Laguna Beach the entry level pricing to get into this neighborhood starts right around $2 million dollars.  For this price range you will be able to find a home in the upper Three Arch Bay area with views of the ocean.  Since the community is split into two different areas, one of the ocean side and one up in the hills, price ranges can vary a lot.  For most clients looking for homes on the ocean side, Three Arch Bay homes for sale under $3 Million can be a tough venture.  Currently, there is just one home for sale in the lower Three Arch Bay area with an asking price of $2,879,000.  The home features 3 bedrooms with just over 2,200

Laguna Beach estate homes are can be found in many different areas of Laguna Beach but if you are in the market for a luxury estate home in a gated community we recommend the following neighborhoods: Three Arch Bay, Emerald Bay & Irvine Cove. 

First, Three Arch Bay is a great place to start.  The community is located in the South Laguna area and features homes located on both the east & west side the freeway.  Commonly referred to as "lower" and "upper" Three Arch Bay with various price ranges depending on the size and view, proximity to the beach and the views.  The inventory of homes is really low in the Lower Three Arch Bay, especially for four bedroom plus ocean view properties.  The great thing about Three Arch Bay is the easy walk down to the
