40 North La Senda Drive, Laguna Beach, California, United States, 92651
Used as a stunning backdrop in early feature films, this historically-significant Three Arch Bay estate is literally a place of which fantasies are made.
Built in the 1920s by members of the legendary movie producing Griffith family, the compound is rich in Hollywood glamour and history. Unfolding over nearly an acre on six parcels, this oceanfront wonderland has it?s own lighthouse and private beach – complete with a swimming pool carved into the rocks, replenished daily by the ocean tides.
A cobblestone pathway winds past seaside gardens, lawns, and two separate guest cottages. The main house was a major production designed in a nautical style with reclaimed appointments including a ship’s staircase, porthole windows, cabinetry, millwork, cage elevator, Captain’s master bedroom with fireplace, and a den designed by the art director of Mutiny on the Bounty.
Outdoors, a stone patio stretches across the oceanfront providing a sublime entertainment venue including the lighthouse outfitted with viewing room and bath, stairs to the private beach and a suspension bridge to the natural pool. Beyond charming with endless possibilities, this is truly a rare offering of a storied piece of ocean paradise in beautiful Laguna Beach.
