Villa Dei Tramonti
Among the truly select and private beaches in Southern California, Irvine Cove is the most scenic and tranquil. Situated between two large promontories in North Laguna Beach, this idyllic cove has only five homes that open directly onto its sands. VILLA DEI TRAMONTI, or “villa of the sunsets”, is the tasteful Italian Mediterranean Revival style residence that occupies the largest of these five parcels. With over 180 lineal feet on the sand at the secluded end of the cove, the serenity found here is unmatched. Concealed from view by private entry gates, the entire villa and grounds stand apart from the surroundings and are open only to the sands and ocean below.
Nearly one half acre in size, and surrounded by sun-soaked terraces and mature gardens, this sublime abode exudes the ambiance of a private resort. Walls of glass were carefully placed to enhance the striking views of the emerald and aqua waters in the cove below, which can be seen from every major room. The warmth of the surroundings is reflected in the colors and materials selected for the home, its finishes and fittings. Nearly ten thousand square feet of interior space have been carefully articulated to create a flowing plan of graciously scaled rooms. The great room alone is nearly one thousand square feet and is perched above the cove with three seaward-facing exposures. It also opens to sea view terraces on two sides.
Rustic elements featured in the interiors include hand honed limestone floors, artisanal iron and 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. A formal dining room, a large gathering kitchen, a handsome paneled study, and a large family room with billiards area comprise the remainder of public spaces. Several ocean view bedroom suites, including a sumptuous main level master suite, are included in the residence. Surrounded by ocean view terraces that cascade to the beach below, this home will accommodate oceanfront living and entertaining without compromise. Singular in its attributes, no other oceanfront property on this coast affords such privacy, views and size in a private beach setting.
