40 N La Senda Drive

Located within the seaside, guard gated community of Three Arch Bay, Laguna Beach’s southernmost neighborhood, located just to the north of Dana Point’s Monarch Bay, 40 N La Senda Drive, a vintage, 1929, well-loved cliffside cottage located within an acre of grounds, provides the opportunity for unparalleled views and activities, as it possesses both a personal light house and private access to the small sandy beach and natural, rock-hewn salt water, tide-filled pool below.

The nonchalant, Yankee-esque, utilitarian exterior, composed of white shiplap, provides a unify foundation from which to focus the property on the location, as well as the yacht-like interiors, which provide all the more delicious, tactile perspective of the space.

Once inside the existing home on the property, you are enveloped into a certain unassuming coziness, a world a lace doilies, hand-hewn beams, and winding staircases—there is a space for everything and everything is in its place. There is a very ship-shape air to the property, which is only heightened by the charming porthole windows on the exterior doors.

The views offered by this property—private, endless, sheltered, vast—are truly one of a kind, a very much treasured aspect of a home commanding such a location within the community. The whimsy added by the lighthouse and light, delicate touches, such as the porthole windows and intimately sized home, are features I treasure and hope will remain, yet in a personalized style true to the new owners.

40 N La Senda Drive consists of a 4 bedroom, 5 bathroom, 3,545 square foot home located on a roughly 41,400 square foot lot that is currently pending sale with a listed asking price of $19,900,000. The property is currently listed by Tim Smith of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage.
