Beautiful Renovated Home in Coveted Woods Cove

Discover a rare opportunity to indulge in an oceanfront lifestyle for far less than a front-row price at this spectacular ocean-view home in Laguna Beach’s highly desirable Woods Cove enclave.

The completely renovated residence reveals two bedrooms and two- and one-half baths in approximately 2,826 square feet, with additional spaces that accommodate your lifestyle making it ideal as both a main residence or a lavish vacation home. Details are carefully handcrafted by genuine artisans and include stone imported from a Turkish quarry, wide-plank wood floors repurposed from an old Wisconsin barn, hand-hewn wood beams with custom lighting, and a copper roof.

A custom glass and metal elevator offers access to the garage and street level, and quartzite countertops, whole-house audio, designer lighting and wall treatments, bi-fold glass doors that allow a perfect indoor/outdoor flow, and Buster+Punch light switches and outlets add undeniable beauty throughout. Seamless living and entertaining with people you hold closest in life is easily enjoyed in a border-free living, dining and kitchen space with magnificent ocean views, an elegant fireplace and a Dutch door to an ocean-view terrace.

An oversized kitchen island provides ample space for mealtime, appetizers and more and joins custom cabinetry, a farmhouse sink, six-burner Wolf range with double oven and griddle, and cabinet-matched appliances from Sub-Zero and Bosch. Relax in a family room just off the kitchen that opens to a private backyard oasis with an endless pool, fountains and grassy area, which are rare in this superb location. This level also features a bedroom with book-matched stone and dual sinks in its bath and a chic upscale boutique-inspired walk-in closet. A cozy movie room with elegant bar offers serene views. Upstairs, the primary suite boasts a luxurious bath and flows to a rooftop deck with panoramic ocean and whitewater views.
