Yes, this is click-bait….and it’s TOTALLY WORTH IT.

I’m sure you’ve done it, too — looked at obscenely expensive houses you have an approximately 0.0001% chance of affording in your lifetime. Well, this one is probably my favorite of all. It’s not a mid-century modern. It wasn’t designed by a “starchitect” either. But it sits on nearly an acre of land in Three Arch Bay (good luck ever finding that again), and has amazing views from most of the rooms. This isn’t an estate, it’s a compound. And by sitting on the point it almost feels all alone — like its situated in a much more sparsely populated part of the coast. But, I truly saved the best for last — IT HAS A FREAKIN’ LIGHTHOUSE! Okay, maybe I’m a bit weird, but this is the stuff of childhood dreams for me. My very own lighthouse. How could anyone say no? And if anyone out there would like to prove me wrong about the chances of affording it, hit me up. I would absolutely LOVE to show this amazing site.

ABSOLUTE AUCTION, WITHOUT RESERVE by DeCaro Auctions International. Breathtaking panoramic ocean views surround this rare beachfront estate in the exclusive seaside community of Three Arch Bay. Gracefully situated above a private cove and completely immersed in nature, the magnificent setting includes cobblestone paths that wind through the grounds, an oceanfront terrace spanning the width of the property, and an awe-inspiring lighthouse complete with viewing room and bathroom. Built by Edward H. Griffith, a famous director and producer in early American filmmaking, this historically significant residential compound remains a treasured landmark along the Laguna Beach coastline. In addition to the property’s celebrated lighthouse, the compound encompasses three separate living structures; two guest cottages and a nautical-style main house with reclaimed finishes including custom millwork, cage elevator, porthole windows, and a ship’s staircase. Private steps lead down to the sand which make this an incredible opportunity to own a residence with endless possibilities in a setting of unrivaled beauty.
