It is an incredibly rare moment when history, beauty, opulence and an oceanfront setting come together at one time, presenting an opportunity that is truly provocative. Crowning a dramatic bluff between Moss Point and Victoria Beach in Laguna Beach, Villa Rockledge encompasses nearly 25,000 square feet of seaside splendor, complete with stairs leading to a private cove. Created nearly 100 years ago, the tranquil oasis reveals panoramic ocean, whitewater and sunset views, exquisitely landscaped grounds, a main house and 4 guest villas. Enjoy 12 bedrooms, 11 baths, and gated parking for 12-plus cars. Exquisite attention to detail is evident in stained-glass windows, a cigar loft, carved wood doors, wrought iron accents, stone fireplaces, window seats, hardwood floors and crystal chandeliers. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places and showcased in a book about its creation and history, Villa Rockledge is Mills Act-approved, offering a significant tax break for maintaining the custom estate’s appearance. While retaining its classic Mediterranean-inspired style, the property is professionally restored and upgraded with today’s preferred appointments. Also known as Mariona Villa, the estate has a rich history enhanced by the allure of Old Hollywood. Actress Bette Davis met her third husband here in the mid-1940s, and Actor Erroll Flynn was known to visit. An enviable location is moments from restaurants, shops, galleries and resorts.
