EMERALD BAY | LAGUNA BEACH | White water, panoramic, Catalina and sunset views from almost every room!! An original Fred Briggs-designed residence constructed from the ground up after the Laguna Beach fires of October 1993. This custom-built home is located on a corner lot offering white water, sand, ocean, panoramic, Catalina, and sunset views. This street entry main living level lives like a single-level home as it encompasses a great room with a living and dining area with a fireplace and vaulted beamed ceiling all opening up to an expansive exterior terrace. The kitchen includes a breakfast nook area with fantastic ocean views. The main floor also includes the primary bedroom suite with a fireplace all with fabulous views. The guest powder room and garage conclude the main living level. Downstairs on the lower living level, two additional bedrooms with en suite bathrooms each open to the rear grass yard. Additionally, an inside laundry room is conveniently located on the lower living level. The attached garage at the street accommodated two full-size vehicles. The views from this Emerald Bay custom residence are all direct ocean-facing views and make this an incredible Emerald Bay property.
