Coldwell Banker Global Luxury - Laguna Beach, CA

Set on nearly one-acre in the heart of the Village is 495 Arroyo Chico - an enchanting 3-structure legacy estate steeped in local history dating more than a century. Tucked behind private gates at the base of a natural amphitheater (believed to be the original site of the Pageant of the Masters), the compound emanates conspicuous grandeur, achieved with unbridled privacy and luxurious accommodations complemented by time-honored elements including dozens of native trees, original paths and planters winding the property, and one of the largest pools in Laguna, rumored to be the former public pool whose steps rehabilitated World War II soldiers. While unequivocally significant in antiquity, the residence also boasts modern amenities and appointments in each of the main house, guest house, and media/pool house including a state-of-the-art kitchen, spacious bedrooms with ensuite baths, media/gaming room, Smart Home technology, and a Chiltern Firehouse-inspired bar fit with wine dispenser, ice maker, wine refrigerator and drawers. High-end finishes adorn each structure, among them Statuario Altissimo marble countertops, wide plank wood floors, custom windows and millwork. Additional highlights of the sprawling estate are a gas firepit, fruit trees, herb garden and the piece de resistance - an ethereal outdoor dining area beneath a canopy of 100-year-old wisteria. A rare offering of space, location, comfort and history - this distinctive estate is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
