Showcased in books that celebrate stunning architecture, this modern Lehrer Architects designed masterpiece graces the sand along the most enviable section of Dana Point’s guard-gated Beach Road enclave. From this vantage point, the rare three-level design welcomes spectacular Pacific Ocean, coastline, sunset and evening-light views from Dana Point’s rugged headlands to San Clemente and beyond. Sited to maximize its view-enriched beachfront location, the open and naturally illuminated residence dazzles the eye with unusually tall 16' slide-away glass doors that open to the beach, dramatic curvilinear and angled walls, electrically controlled skylights, and two-story ceilings. Extending approximately 3,789 square feet, the four-bedroom, four-and-one-half-bath floorplan carefully connects public and private living areas, with the main level featuring a shared living, dining and kitchen area that opens to an on-the-sand deck with built-in BBQ and a spa. The upgraded kitchen shines with glossy white cabinetry, lighted glass uppers, an enormous island with seating, and top-tier stainless appliances including a built-in refrigerator. Floating stairs lead to an upper floor with a loft-style library/office, and a bonus room with built-in seating. Another level up is reserved for the ocean-view primary suite which is wrapped in floor-to-ceiling windows and hosts a seaside deck, fireplace, soaking tub and separate shower. Wood and stone flooring, luxe carpet, radiant heat, automatic window shades, and a two-car garage with stainless steel roll-up doors continue the home’s modern vibe throughout. Properties along Beach Road extend to the median high-tide line on the sand. There is no HOA at the community, and residents appreciate its setting near hiking, walking and biking trails. Restaurants and shops await at Dana Point’s newly revitalized Lantern District and harbor, and lavish resorts and premier golf courses are easily accessible.
