Laguna Beach Village, Laguna Beach, CA, 92651 - United States
1179 Katella St
On a site selected by the owner in the 60’s for it’s sweeping whitewater views of the southern California coastline, 1179 Katella is a special property that has played host to celebrities and a long running pool-side charity event that was a Laguna classic. Front row and with unobstructed views, the property has a magical quality that remains from the day these owners selected the location and constructed the classic post and beam home. The main level hosts a large living room, formal dining room, and a large kitchen with a main level bedroom. The upper level is a master suite with commanding views, and a large second living room that also once served as a screening room. The lower level has three more bedrooms, and a third living space that allows this floor to be almost self-sufficient. Multiple view decks and outdoor areas add to the charm, and lead to the crown jewel of the property – a magnificently large pool jutting out into the sunset view. The home’s three car garage with additional parking on the driveway apron, a rare bonus for hillside homes. This site, the result of a two year search by the owners, overlooks virtually every iconic Laguna Beach tableau including the sands of Main Beach, Hotel Laguna, Catalina Island, and views to Palos Verdes. Available for the first time ever on the open market, 1179 Katella presents an amazing opportunity to own a home that would be virtually unduplicatable today.
