The Pacific Coast Highway is the longest state road in California, a scenic journey atop cliffs and through charming oceanside towns. And because top-notch real estate is drawn to picturesque locales, any trip down Highway 1 also delivers epic architecture eye candy.
Located two blocks from the ocean, just south of the Pacific Coast Highway, this four-bedroom, four-bath stunner features plenty to ogle at. Originally constructed in 1961, the midcentury ranch was rebuilt in 2016 by California architect Chris Light.
The remodel took advantage of the home’s long horizontal lines and incorporated disappearing walls of glass for indoor-outdoor entertaining. Ocean views dominate the home’s southern side, while the northern side features a large yard with barbecue and patio area.
Inside the 3,050-square-foot space, a modern kitchen boasts Calacatta Borghini marble, lacquered cabinets, custom lighting, oak flooring, and a great room with marble fireplace. A giant bathroom accompanies the master bedroom, and a one-bedroom guest house sits across from an outdoor fireplace.
California real estate prices being what they are, the Laguna Beach home doesn’t come cheap. 2538 Monaco Drive is on the market for $14,800,000.
