Welcome to Mystic Hills
Panoramic vistas are just one of the many selling points of this cliffside community.
Set back just a short walk from the white sands and deep blue waters of Laguna Beach, Mystic Hills is an exclusive, luxury community with some of the most spectacular views around. The neighborhood is perched on the gentle hills above downtown Laguna Beach and the beach itself, and lavish estates glitter like jewels in the glow of each West Coast sunset. Bordered to the north by California State Route 133, Mystic Hills also has quick access to another major road, by the Pacific Coast Highway that runs along the shore.
The community of Mystic Hills began developing in the 1960s, and since then, the pervasive sense of constant improvement has allowed the market value for these unique luxury homes to skyrocket. The elevation gives Mystic Hills residents unparalleled views of sparkling city lights, Catalina, and the Pacific’s white-capped waves.
Homes here boast a wide variety of architectural styles—a few of the many designs you might encounter include red-tiled Mediterranean villa estates, sprawling contemporary ranches, Cape Cod mansions, smaller California bungalows, and modern new builds with a sleek coastal aesthetic. Prices can run over $10 million, and most homes sell for an average of $1-4 million. The hefty price tags come with plentiful amenities, those famous views, and usually several thousand square feet.
