Among the truly select and private beaches in Southern California, Irvine Cove is the most scenic and tranquil. Situated in Laguna Beach, this idyllic cove has only five homes that open directly onto its sands. Situated behind its own gate, ‘Villa Dei Tramonti’ features 180 lineal feet of frontage on the cove – making it the largest and most private of the five. Surrounded by sun-soaked terraces and mature gardens, the sublime Mediterranean Revival style residence exudes the ambiance of a private resort. Walls of glass enhance the striking views of the emerald waters and can be seen from every major room. Nearly 10,000 square feet of interior space is arranged in a flowing plan of graciously scaled rooms. The great room alone is nearly 1,000 square feet and features three seaward exposures. The warmth of the surroundings is reflected in the colors and materials selected for the home, which include honed limestone floors, artisanal bronze, and finely crafted millwork. The composition of interiors is “informal perfection”; it is distinguished and urbane, as well as uniquely harmonious with the seaside locale. Singular in its attributes, this property affords an incomparable opportunity to live and entertain without compromise in a private beach setting.
