This architectural treasure, designed by renowned local architect Chris Abel, combines the timeless modern elegance and the natural, adaptable style that are the hallmark elements of his signature approach. Use of large pillar-less windows, exposed beams, dramatic vaulted roof-lines and tongue and groove ceilings are examples of his extraordinary craftsmanship and permeate every nuance of this sophisticated home. The extensively remodeled kitchen is enhanced by custom cabinetry, quartz countertops, stainless steel appliances and a Viking range. The master suite features vaulted ceilings, pristine views through oversize windows and a large walk-in closet. Two additional bedrooms upstairs are considerably larger than the typical local offering and share a remodeled bathroom. The generous layout also features a coveted downstairs bedroom with a separate entrance and a private pool and spa in the backyard. This tranquil home sits on a single loaded cul-de sac in the gated enclave of Laguna Woods; an exclusive collection of 8216;Chris Abel 8217; designed homes situated on 90 private acres and known for it’s verdant tree-lined streets and serene landscape. Just up the hill from some of Southern California 8217;s finest beaches and the award winning Monarch Beach, Ritz Carlton and Montage resorts, this home is also minutes from blue-ribbon schools, the charm of downtown Laguna Beach and the newly renovated 8216;Lantern District 8217; in Dana Point.
