San Clemente 4100 Calle Isabella

This is the most significant oceanfront estate in Southern California. Comprised of two parcels totaling 5.45 acres, it features 480 linear feet of beach frontage. The entire compound sits behind private walls and fences. As such, it enjoys absolute privacy. The grounds are mostly flat with a garden that gently slopes seaward of the main residence. The majority of the estate lies between elevations of 60 feet and 73 feet above sea level. These natural elevations are ideally suited to maintain privacy and enhance the sweeping ocean, island, and sunset views. The beach below is easily accessible from a private gate. All of the essential elements of a true estate property – uncommon and exceptional grounds, impeccable improvements, and peerless privacy – can be found here at the water’s edge. With a lineage going back nearly one hundred years, the property’s illustrious history includes only three owners. Featured three times in Architectural Digest, the authentic Spanish Colonial Revival architecture masterfully balances elegance with a timeless appeal. The gleaming white structures contrast perfectly against the vibrant colors of the lush greenery that surrounds them. Stands of palms and Monterey Cypress sway in the breezes, connected by expanses of emerald lawns and impeccably kept seaside gardens. The various structures total 15,000 square feet of living area and include a modernized circa 1927 main residence of approximately 9,000 square feet, with beautiful public rooms, an expansive master suite, private office, screening room, exercise room, and wine cellar; a sizable poolside pavilion which includes a grand entertaining room, bar, guest suite, den, and view terraces; a two-bedroom guest house with sitting room; an ocean view pool and terrace; a regulation, lighted, north-south tennis court with spectators’ area; an enclosed gazebo on the oceanfront; expansive lawns and formal, vegetable and succulent gardens—many with exotic specimens; multiple garages; an independent catering facility; multiple staff buildings and garages; security annexes; a private well for landscaping; and auxiliary back-up power. Located in an area renown for the ‘most idyllic climate in the world’, the property is only a few miles from Laguna Beach, and easily accessible to Newport Beach, Los Angeles, and the best of Southern California’s amenities. Never to be duplicated, this is a singular offering and easily the most impressive oceanfront property in Southern California.$65,000,000
