1535 Morningside Drive

1535 Morningside Drive, Laguna Beach, CA 92651

Sited at the crest of Rimrock Canyon and designed by the legendary Chris Abel, 1535 Morningside is a contemporary achievement with soaring ocean and canyon views. This updated, open floor plan is fashioned with floor to ceiling glass windows and modern accents. A curved glass window provides character and natural light to the kitchen with a stainless steel Dacor appliance suite and custom cabinetry. A gated, private courtyard entrance welcomes visitors onto an Ipe deck with dynamic architectural features. The formal entry opens to the main living level with adjoining private lounge, view terrace, private office and guest powder. The lower level features a master suite with large picture windows, a spa-like bathroom with steam shower and a massive walk-in closet. Two additional bedrooms, a bathroom and a large secondary living area round out the lower level which surrounds a private courtyard with a TV and hot tub. This Chris Abel designed home is a masterpiece in its own right and offers an amazing, peaceful juxtaposition between architecture and nature.
