Relax on your own terrace overlooking Victoria Beach, with white water, Catalina Island and what many consider the best ocean views in Laguna Beach! Designed by renowned architect Austin C. Whittlesey, who designed the Los Angeles City Hall - this extraordinary home offers all the features you would expect from a 1936 architectural masterpiece.

The ocean views continue in every room, making your dining experience truly remarkable. The kitchen is open to the dining room - thoughtfully updated with wood countertops, fireclay sink and new stainless appliance package including dual fuel stove with downdraft exhaust.

Oak stairs with turned spindles lead to a balcony overlooking the living room, and up to a hallway with French doors that open to a second story gallery with wood railings and more amazing views. There are two more bedrooms plus an office upstairs, all with incredible ocean views. The upstairs bathroom is also updated, with large tile shower enclosure, separate tub, new vanity and lots of original built-in storage. A new roof has been installed and lots of improvements in keeping with the original design. There is a basement with a furnace room and separate dark room. Exterior steps from the terrace lead down to a two car garage. An exceptional property!
