Emerald Bay Residence

Laguna Beach, California

A new home located in the privated gated enclave of Emerald Bay. The home replaces a small nondescript cottage that ocupied the site since 1940. Situated on a small oceanside lot of 3000 SF, the design solution provides over 5000 SF of living area with six bedrooms and 7.5 bathrooms. The architecture is reminicient of Eastern Seaboard Shingle Style residences of the turn of the century. The imported stone provides a strong base for the home and the natural cedar shingles will gracefully weather to a soft grey over time as they are exposed to the salt air and ocean breezes.

The slate roof, copper details and stained glass eyebrow window all contribute subtle detail and sophistication to the exterior. The main level is an open floor plan well suited to entertaining,Additionally guest quarters, family room,multiple fireplaces, outdoor covered porches, an elevator, and 3 car garage complete the residence.
