Description

Once the residence of screen legend Bette Davis, perched atop a captivating oceanfront cliff, this statuesque estate draws in all who visit. This 5,472 +/- s.f., 6 bed, 8 bath French Normandy estate in Laguna Beach has earned a place on the registry of historic places. A private courtyard entry leads to the home’s main entrance, guest house entrance, and dining terrace with stairs leading to a sunny lounge area with direct stair access to the beach below. The main house, anchored by an exquisite great room leads guests to the Lookout Room and adjoining family room and dining room, all with stunning views of crashing waves and sea. With solid oak floors and updated styling throughout, the home encircles a central spiral staircase topped with a conical roof and spire. The updated kitchen with eating nook offers stainless steel top-end appliances. Upstairs is a master suite with an interior Juliet balcony over the great room, a large ocean view terrace, & updated ensuite w/Carrara marble & heated floors. Two additional ensuite bedrooms and extra storage rooms complete the upper level. The lower level offers a large bar area & adjoining media room, wine cellar, gym & ocean view bedroom. The separate guest house has two ensuite guest rooms, one within its own self-contained apartment. This exclusive and private retreat, surrounded by lush greenery, sand, and breathtaking overlooks, is a stone’s-throw distance from shops, restaurants, and the art galleries of Laguna Beach.
