A Newly Built Laguna Beach House Overlooking the Pacific Emits Chic Hollywood Vibes

Over in Southern California’s Orange County, just off the Laguna Beach coastline, a contemporary residence designed by the award-winning architecture firm Tag Front has popped up for sale in the Lower Bluebird neighborhood pocket. Built new this year, and notched into a hillside lot overlooking sweeping canyon and ocean vistas, the asking price is a speck under $12.9 million.

Sited on a gated parcel spanning nearly one-and-a-half acres, and touted in marketing materials as having a “chic Hollywood Hills vibe enhanced by an enviable setting close to Laguna’s world-renowned beaches, restaurants, galleries and shops,” the striking wood-clad structure is fronted by a gated driveway that can accommodate up to four vehicles, plus a motorized turntable providing easy access in and out of an attached two-car garage.

Once inside the house, four en-suite bedrooms and five bathrooms are sprawled across a little more than 6,200 square feet of open-concept living space adorned throughout with a mix of large-slab tile and rift-cut, white oak wide-plank floors, as well as wood and concrete wall finishes, designer light fixtures and floor-to-ceiling windows. Walls of pocketing glass doors offer seamless indoor/outdoor environs, with glitzy amenities ranging from an elevator to all three levels and smart-home capabilities, to a glassy temperature-controlled wine room.

A fireside living area on the main floor offers wide-open access to a sprawling terrace hosting an infinity-edge pool and spa.

Among the main-level highlights is a fireside living room that spills out to a spacious ocean-view deck sporting a barbecue station, along with a saltwater infinity-edge swimming pool and spa. Back inside, a dining area connects to a sleek Italian Motleni& C Dada kitchen, which is outfitted with walnut cabinetry, an expansive island boasting an attached eat-in table, and top-tier Gaggenau, Miele and Thermador appliances.

A curving floating staircase heads to the upper level, which hosts a primary retreat flaunting a fireplace and private deck encased within a wraparound green roof. There’s also a showroom-style closet holding court next to the luxe spa-like bathroom, which comes complete with dual vanities, a soaking tub and large glass-encased shower; and the lower entertainment level is spotlighted by media and game rooms. There’s also a bonus space elsewhere that could easily serve as a gym.

The listing is jointly held by Josh Altman and Alexandra Rubow of Douglas Elliman, and Meital Taub of Livel Real Estate.
