This stunning Laguna Beach home, designed by acclaimed architect Paul McClean in partnership with Horst Architects, is reminiscent of Le Corbusier’s classic Modernism or, more recently, the sweeping curves and expanses of glass employed by expressionist architect Eero Saarinen. The residence rises four levels against a pastoral hillside and overlooks Crescent Bay, Emerald Bay and Irvine Cove. With 4500-acre Laguna Coast Wilderness Park as its backdrop, it offers access to hiking, mountain biking and other activities. The home’s abundance of glass provides panoramic views of ocean and coastline, from Main Beach to Pacific Palisades. The property’s dramatic presence in this privileged enclave becomes apparent at first sight. The driveway gate, for example, previews the imaginative combining of stainless steel and glass employed throughout the home. Steps of beautifully-stained Brazilian ipe – the same hardwood used in all the property’s exterior decks – welcome one to the entry. Once inside, one is awe-struck by the spectacular three-story volume of a glass-enclosed foyer, filled with natural light and showcasing vistas of coastline, ocean and sky viewed from a fabulous staircase of oak and burnished steel. From there, an open, expansive floorplan allows freedom of movement and liberation of the soul. Formal living spaces and bedroom suites host floor-to-ceiling Fleetwood windows and doors. The master suite plus three additional bedrooms pamper with sumptuous spa-like en suite baths. Other luxury amenities include a large multi-level theater, an office with exterior access, fully functioning prep kitchen, elevator, dramatic pool, spa, BBQ, putting green, three-car garage, and state-of-the-art security system. The home, a one-of-a-kind monument of modernism, also features a level of privacy and security not normally available along the busy and active North Laguna coastline. Proximate to beaches, shopping, services, and excellent Newport and Laguna Beach schools, it is perfect for family, and is an ideal venue for entertaining even the most discerning guests.
