Let’s get this out of the way at the beginning. This quite possibly the worst street name for a house in all of Southern California. But, it comes with a pretty big discount — this home is priced below comps. And it’s an amazing Chris Abel-designed masterpiece. Technically the address is Laguna Niguel, but this home is less than 5 minutes from Salt Creek Beach. It’s located in a unique gated community of just 90 homes.
It’s a bit of a “greatest hits” of Chris Abel design elements. You have the walls of glass, open beam tongue-and-groove ceilings, as well as the dramatic, multi-angle roof line. But, it’s big…nearly 2600 square feet of architectural design. This is the kind of home where the needle must be thread pretty carefully…but the current beige and whitewash design is feeling a bit dated. I think the key to any updating is an honoring of the original combination of contemporary and traditional Spanish design elements.
While $1,000,000 is hardly an entry-level price point or anything to sneeze at, i’ts a price below comps and one that allows a creative budget to reimagine. Chris Abel’s designs are original and contextual — this home was meant to look it would fit into the natural California landscape but bring its own perspective on modernism. This home feels like the South Coast of Orange County — and there’s nothing wrong with that.
