Architectural and Builder Masterpiece


This home was just recently completed by a local couple deeply rooted in Laguna’s custom home-building and arts traditions. Renowned architectural innovator Lamont Langworthy designed this stunning yet tranquil retreat, abutting the hilltop boundary of Laguna’s open space preserve. Recently selected by the Laguna Friends of Architecture as their home of the month, it offers unobstructable coastline views from Shaws Cove to Dana Point. The home is integrated with the natural surroundings – sandstone boulders harvested from the excavation are used to enhance the many terraces, gardens and generous pool area. This exposed-post-and-beam structure of steel, wood, concrete and makes extensive use of floor-to-ceiling glass for indoor/outdoor effect. The house is 4,500 sq. ft., with a 1,400 sq. ft.. garage with an 11-foot ceiling. It has master-sized bedroom suites, a guest bedroom and a large pool and spa with views.
