Location: Laguna Beach, California

The cliffside location of this Laguna Beach home leads to some tricky logistical challenges, but the views are well worth the trouble. The property is hard to access, and the layout is “upside-down”, with the street at entry-level and the bedrooms and living spaces down three flights of stairs, with the scenery getting more beautiful as you go.

Mediterranean Inspired Home in California for Multigenerational Second Home

The homeowners, hailing originally from Italy and India, wanted a warm inviting space that was equally a classic Mediterranean home and a traditional California beach house. The entry flooring is made up of sliced antique cobblestones, and the stair rail was plucked from a Northern California antique store. The kitchen was designed around a black La Cornue range, hood, and adjacent cabinetry. To anchor the island visually against the black elements, a metal frame was added to the island, setting it apart. The living room fireplace was custom designed to balance a large television, a must-have for family movie nights. On the lowest level, reclaimed limestone flooring carries outside to the pool area.
