The Upper Diamond area in Laguna Beach, California is perched at one of the highest points in the entire city and offers spectacular panoramic ocean views. This is also one of the best areas to find large and newer constructed estate homes built in the Mediterranean, Contemporary and Traditional architectural styles. For those who have driven on Diamond street have experienced a discontinuance of the road that connects the lower & upper Diamond streets. This has been this way for many years and the city has no plans to connect the street in this small parcel of land. The upper section of Diamond is where some of the most beautiful homes can be found as well as many lots for sale. Land prices will typically start in the low $700,000 range and offer panoramic views of the ocean. It's important to note that land built in areas that are not accessible are considered "land locked" and potentially have no building value unless the city determines to built a road to these locations.
Home prices will start just above the $1.8 million range for a 2,000 square foot ocean view home. For the most part, many of the properties found in the Upper Diamond area will offer some kind of a view with the most dramatic views can be found on streets like Crestline View and Summit Way. In the past year there have been a wide variety of sale prices that range from $2,730,000 for a 3,200 square foot ocean view home built in 2001 to a $4,445,000 for a 3,800 square foot home built in 2009.
