Laguna Beach Real Estate
Settled between Monarch and Newport Beach, Laguna Beach encompasses some of the best beaches in California. In fact, some say it is one of the most beautiful places in the world. The boom in Laguna Beach real estate began in the 1920s with the success of Hollywood and subsequent search for vacation homes away from the smog of Los Angeles. The homes built in the 1920s make up the majority of Laguna Beach homes, while newer homes have been built higher in the hills and on the sides of cliffs. Architectural styles vary, though Laguna Beach has a predominance of modern and contemporary styles – embodied by flat roofs, extensive glass windows, and an intentional break from conventional forms. The area is one of the greatest examples of a rich variety of modern styles in one place. Mixed in with the modern and contemporary is also a variety of Spanish & Mediterranean style homes. Laguna Beach has a variety of houses available, and there is one sure to match your personality.
