About 2495 Riviera Drive, Laguna Beach:
Featuring 115 linear feet on the beach, the approximately 7,200 square foot residence includes five bedrooms and nine baths. Completed in 2012, this striking residence perfectly embodies the promise of such an extraordinary oceanfront parcel.  The defining elements of California design – walls of glass, generously scaled rooms, a central courtyard, an informal plan, and correlated indoor/outdoor living – have been successfully incorporated into the design.

Clad in mahogany, bronze, limestone and glass, the substance of the structure is undeniable. Seamless transitions between interiors and exteriors evidence the transparent design complements this one-of-a-kind oceanfront setting. Offered well below the cost, this is an exceptional opportunity which will not come again.
