Beach Close with ocean views, this custom home was designed and built by renowned Laguna Beach architect Charles Marland Johnson. It features high ceilings and exposed beams of natural cedar wood interior and a wall of glass maximizing the Ocean, Catalina Island and lovely sunset views. Occupied by one family since it was built, this is the first time ever it is being offered for rent.

All this convenience and yet tucked away on a cul de sac street with 3 parking spaces with all utilities underground.

Large front deck off living and dining rooms has ocean views and is perfect for outdoor living. Open living plan with spacious Living Room with fireplace and high ceilings.
