Coastal southern California has its share of special homes in special places. Rarely, though, does a property have the ability to transport and transform, to foster the sense of wonder that can add joy to everyday living. 400 Ashton Drive in Laguna Beach, situated on an estate-sized parcel of land above the sands of Victoria Beach, sparks the kind of joy that is only possible when a perfect beach-close location combines with a home that delights at every turn. Entering up the curving drive reveals terraced gardens and a marvelous towering home. Once the home of a renowned local artist, the grounds and the home itself have been rejuvenated and reinvented across years by the current owners. A stately rustic outdoor fireplace and living room invites conversation while the terrace above holds a substantial outdoor kitchen. The gardens beckon exploration – view terraces and quiet spots abound, a maturing fruit tree grove and installations by local artists share the spaces in a unique alchemy. But, it is once you get to the home itself where the full magic is revealed. The panoramic Pacific Ocean and coastline views are stunning, and the house is like no other – carefully preserving the architectural nods to its history, the owners have updated the home into a coastal masterpiece. The main level is wrapped with glass and expansive ocean view decks, and is finished magnificently… hitting the right mix of organic design and luxury. A main level bedroom opens to the rear gardens including raised planter boxes and, of course, a producing chicken coop. With a nod to the home’s history, elements of the old home have been repurposed inside and out. The vast ocean views are not lost on the lower bedroom level. From the private primary suite, complete with wet room and copper soaking tub, to the guest suites, media area and wrap-around covered decks, the lower level of the home delivers the same ‘wow’ factor as the main level. Though the home feels worlds apart from any neighbors, it is just three blocks from the sand. Gated at the street, the estate has abundant parking behind the gate and off-street outside the gate. 400 Ashton Drive is a property to be savored and explored, a property that defies duplication in coastal real estate.
