We are talking fantastic Catalina and San Clemente Island views, plus masterfully designed interiors. Walls of glass bring the outdoors in. The chef’s kitchen will have you whipping up gourmet meals. And the master suite is the most tranquil place to refresh and renew. But this Laguna Beach gem has an ace up its sleeve.

Steal: Architectural Beauty Mere Blocks From Best Beaches For $2.34M
Now, for nearly six million less, you could post up in this architecturally significant coastal home along Temple Hills Drive. Per the listing it was “Conceived by the principal of a well-regarded architectural firm as his personal residence.” So you know it has to be good.
The views are mesmerizing, inside and out. And the three-bedroom, two-bathroom beauty offers a lot of bang for your buck! This includes intersecting planes, walls of glass, and serene spaces to unwind. In fact, the home is made up of three stacking cubes that are perfectly poised for relaxation. The most dramatic of all is at the heart of the home, in the kitchen. It has a soaring wall of glass that leads to a calming terraced yard. All of this is accented by warm woods, sleek concrete, and plenty of natural light.
Did we mention there is a hot tub, pergola, and multiple terraces to find your Zen? Perhaps the best part, however, is that much like our splurge, it too is just steps from the best beaches and shops. What a steal!
