Description

As you unlatch the courtyard entrance gate, the stress of the world melts away and you fall into the warm and welcoming embrace of an instantly comfortable home with just a bit of wit and whimsy. Thoroughly updated for modern living, the vintage home is just a short block to the best of Laguna's beaches, and counts celebrity ownership in its storied past. The ground level of the main house is open plan - french doors open to front and rear yards creating a light and airy great room and an enormous,... newly outfitted kitchen. A main floor bedroom suite and powder room, along with a large 'mud room' complete the main level. Two large upstairs bedroom suites share a large deck with a surprise - whitewater coastline views with sparkling nightlights. Another upstairs room could serve as a bedroom, office, nursery or playroom. The second surprise is the ample carriage house suite - oversized with living space, bath, a snack kitchen and sleeping quarters allow a multitude of uses. The parking is phenomenal for the area - garage parking for three vehicles, and a marvelously fanciful brick and stonework drive with room for four more vehicles. Small vintage details like a courtyard fountain and koi pond combine with modern amenities to present a perfect balance of charm and function. This is the home you've been looking for. Your biggest decision will be whether to enjoy your whitewater view, hit the beach, or meander to village restaurants - all within a minute or two from 157 Chiquita.
