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
