Located in the midst of Laguna Beach, a short walk to sand and shops, this home is located on a premium double homesite. Nestled in the rolling hills surrounded by luscious foliage and panoramic ocean views. BUILT IN 1933, this Historic Home was created for George A. Portus, First President of the Pageant of the Masters. Designed by Arlos R. Sedgley, this Spanish Revival home settles behind dense hedges and garden walls, giving top tier privacy and breathtaking sunsets. The 3-story residence has 3 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, 2 car garage; 2,521 sq. ft. of livable space and a 9,135 sq.ft. homesite, with enough buildable flat area for a luxury casita, pool and more. From numerous areas within the home, you'll experience breathtaking ocean scenery; the panoramic views of the Pacific coastline and Channel Islands. Take the Spanish style steps through the arched entry door to this one-of-a-kind historical gem. You will be delighted to find the original grand fireplace, hardwood flooring, open beam ceilings and hand finished plaster walls. Enjoy the vintage clawfoot soaking tub and embellished tile showers. This property offers the feel of a long-established Italian Villa. Entertain outdoors on one of the terraces, under the vine infused pergola or the roof top deck while enjoying warm sunshine and beautiful sunsets. This historically preserved home is part of the MILLS ACT of California and a must see!
