1864 Upper Rim Rock Road

1864 Upper Rim Rock Road, Laguna Beach, CA 92651

Designed by the famed designer, John O'neill for his personal residence, 1864 Upper Rim Rock Road is a French Chateau that would be at home on the pages of a fairytale. An impressive structure of stucco and stone, covered with vines and adorned with iron lanterns and sconces warmly greets guests through a Dutch door. Hand hewn oak floors and solid cedar beams throughout evoke authenticity and whimsy. The kitchen is a blend of old-world charm and modern amenities with stone countertops, custom alder cabinetry, a copper sink and high end appliances including a Sub zero fridge, Viking range and Bosch dishwasher. A plush leather breakfast nook rounds out the kitchen where French doors open out onto one of several private patios. At the end of the main hall, a great room with an eighteen foot vaulted ceiling and limestone fireplace features three sets of French doors which invite the outside in. The main floor is completed by a library which opens to the rear yard and a bedroom with two closets and a fireplace. Stairs lead up to a master suite and private patio with stunning ocean and hillside views. Across a short bridge off the master sits a detached studio where John O'niell designed some of the most beautiful homes in the world. The grounds are lush with mature foliage and large trees. This home is an irreplaceable work of art that conjures a sense of peace and calm and transports one to "somewhere else". PROPERTY VIDEO:
