Property Description

The magic of Laguna Beach lies in a mysterious and wonderful mix of sheer physical beauty, eclectic population, and an indescribable but distinct ‘soul’. Enjoyed by the same family for generations and across 50 years, 470 Flora embodies this peaceful soul – gracious gardens lead to a welcoming home that feels like a warm embrace. Set back from a small quiet street, the home is a rarity in the neighborhood with four bedrooms and ocean views. The original cottage used by the family as their beach retreat was replaced approximately 25 years ago with a magnificently detailed Craftsman style home. Outdoor space abounds – mature trees including a towering coastal redwood shade a large lawn and a wrap-around deck overlooks the generously-sized parcel. An additional large ocean view deck provides an outdoor retreat from the primary suite. The masterful woodwork of the front door and entry set the tone for the artistry throughout. The main level flows from a large great room with fireplace, to a kitchen and dining area that are a perfect homage to the craftsman style. A main level bedroom and bath round out the first floor. Numerous hand-built bookcases line the walls, a reminder of the literary roots of the family patriarch. The upper level holds the large primary suite with ocean views, a secondary bedroom and bath, and a bonus room with fireplace that served as a study for the current owners but provides tremendous potential as additional bedroom, family room or ‘fill in the blank’ room. Storage abounds, including a room off the bottom level garage that is as close to a basement as you’ll find in these parts. Perfectly located in storied Woods Cove, beaches and village shops/restaurants are just blocks away. So many reasons people are attracted to Laguna Beach, and 470 Flora mirrors that indescribable Laguna Beach soul beautifully.
