A custom contemporary estate on the market for $38 million in Laguna Beach, CA, is this week’s most expensive new listing on realtor.com®. The luxe build on a coastal bluff was completed in 2010 and initially appeared on the market in 2015 for $45 million.
With no takers, it’s returned at a lower price point, yet it’s still pricey enough to rule this week’s crop of high-priced homes. It’s an opportunity to score yourself a discount on a property with a level of luxury that is “undeniably impressive” and offers a “world-class” locale. Well, at least that’s what the listing says.
The 9,500-square-foot home on one-third of an acre is part of the posh Montage Resort, where only 13 private home sites are available. Obviously, this pad is a rare offering.
Great room with walls of glass
Bar and game room
Vaulted glass ceiling
Outdoor lounge with coastal views
The estate provides upfront views of the Pacific Ocean through walls of glass. Inside, the sleek home looks less like a humble beach shack and more like it would fit right in next door to Bel Air’s “Billionaire.” Opulent features include dark-hued wenge wood, illuminated slabs of onyx, custom mosaic tile, and natural stone. A floating staircase connects the two levels.
The home includes five bedrooms, six baths, and two half-baths. There’s also an office; chef’s kitchen with stainless-steel appliances, “exotic wood” cabinetry, and center island; and family room with a fireplace. The living spaces feature sliding walls of glass that open to the outdoor deck, pool, and spa. An eye-popping vaulted glass ceiling adds more natural lighting to the central part of the house.
The deluxe lower level includes a bar, wine cellar, home theater, gym, and outdoor lanai with a one-story waterfall.
