HOT HOMES ~ 12 BEDROOM LAGUNA BEACH ESTATE

The “Mariona”~~~~~

A sprawling, oceanfront Laguna Beach estate overlooking a private cove, was built nearly 100 years ago. This fabulous estate, perched on a cliff of prime real estate, was sold in 2012 for $12.75 million to investors from Denmark. They restored and enhanced it, adding modern, high-tech touches. Now……it’s on the market…….again……and?????, the asking price is a mere $30,000,000.00!!!!! This Mediterranean Revival-style compound has quite a storied past. It was built by Frank Augustus Miller, developer of the historic Mission Inn in Riverside, California. This Laguna house was a wedding gift to his second wife, “Marion”. For many years, the secluded estate was known as Villa Rockledge. It sits on a 1/2-acre of lush gardens and winding pathways. At the back of the property, a staircase descends to a 120-foot-long sandy beach with crashing waves. Modern amenities, such as Wi-Fi have been added which certainly contrasts with its 1918 beginnings. Neither power tools or electricity was used. The entire compound, except for an upper guest villa, was built by hand.
