Bid now to experience the exquisite beauty of this private coastal estate behind the gates at historic Smithcliffs in Laguna Beach. Built by its current owner, the “Compound”—as it is affectionately known by locals—was designed as a private retreat for the true beach lover. Enjoying this park-like setting for years, the owners now feel it’s time for new owners to make it their own. While building the property, the owners took into consideration all the advantages that come with over ½ acre of rare, flat, double lots that are nearly impossible to find on the South Coast. Nestled on two legal building sites, the “Compound” is walking distance to all 5 beach coves of North Laguna, Heisler Park, and Main Beach, and is minutes from all the amenities Newport Beach has to offer. The sprawling property is surrounded by enclosures up to 10 ft high, offering the ultimate in privacy and security, and also includes a 5 bd main house, guest house with private entrance, 50 ft lap pool, private maid’s quarters, and cabana. Make no mistake—this property cannot be replicated anywhere in Laguna or Newport. The grounds also include garages to house up to 7 cars, perfect for the auto and boating enthusiast. Located moments from the bustling scene of Laguna Beach, this beautiful estate is ideal for someone who desires convenient access to beaches along with the distinct security and privacy the “Compound” provides.
