Featured Property: Dana Point (May 31, 2013)


Historic Home Set for Auction

Screen Shot 2013-05-21 at 9.14.32 AMCooks Pointe, an unusual oceanfront compound at the apex of the Dana Point Headlands, will be sold at a live auction on June 18 to the highest bidder. The bluff top, half-acre parcel, which has had only two owners in its 70-year history, includes three fully furnished residences with views overlooking the northern and southern Dana Point coastline. Its gated entry, which borders protected open space, belies spacious grounds within that include a courtyard, English style garden and a French Normandy style main home of 3,200 square feet outfitted with antique décor and a distinctive turret.

The property will be sold to the highest bidder through New York’s Concierge Auctions. Unlike most auctions for high-end property, there is no reserve price set for the enclave, originally listed for $11.65 million.

The best quality of Cooks Point is certainly the expansive Pacific Ocean view. However, the homes themselves also have many great attributes and a rich history,” said seller Boyd Plowman. He updated the two private homes and carriage house but preserved the aesthetic reflected in the nautical collection of the original owners, Ron and Marion Cook.

A nautical theme flows throughout the lower, seven-level A-frame home of 3,400 square feet with four-bedrooms and three-bathrooms.

A third residence, one-bedroom carriage-style quarters, top a four-car garage.
