"Located in Abalone Point, an exclusive enclave of 12 oceanfront homes within the Irvine Cove Community in Laguna Beach and perhaps the most desirable oceanfront guard-gated community. Abalone Point offers it’s residents an unsurpassed environment of incredible beauty with a private beach, tennis courts and 24 hour guard-gated security. The current owner who acquired the property from the Irvine family has created the finest oceanfront home in SoCal. Eight years of extensive attention to architectural and structural detail went into the building of this exquisite luxury Italian Palazzo. The owner’s suite, 3 additional guest suites and guest house are spread out over 18,000 SQFT of luxury. The home also includes his and her offices, a commercial kitchen with a Bonnet Maestro range, screening room, gym, VIP bar, 10,000+ bottle wine cellar, pool cabana, craft room and a 6 car garage. The home is graced with gorgeous ocean view galleries and loggias, authentic Roman travertine, terrazzo floors, an oceanfront pool and spa and an adjacent oceanfront event lawn. Rose gardens, 100 year old olive trees, private patios, fountains imported from Europe, and a separate guest house. The design architects agree, it’s the views that make this property so rewarding. A unique aspect of this property is that it’s one of only a few one acre parcels on the water in Southern California. The location facing south with Western exposure provides the magnificent beauty of 180 degree ocean views."
