A Historic $30 Million Estate in Laguna Beach, California
Rarely does a property that is so impressive in both history and geography – located on top of a cliff above the Pacific in Laguna Beach, California, this house is currently on the market awaiting its new owners.
The mansion was built by Frank Augustus Miller for his wife, Marion – which is how the place got its name: Mariona. Miller was a leading figure in promoting Mission-style architecture, his most famous contribution being the Mission Inn in Riverside, California. Another name the place goes by is Villa Rockledge.
The mansion boasts eight bedrooms and seven bathrooms, while another separate building is host to four villas, each with its own entrance, which can be used as guest rooms or offices. The estate also has two garages and four car ports, while a stairway leads down from the home to the 120-foot-long sandy beach.
Also worth noting is the fact the main house, which is on the National Register of Historic Places, still has some of its original hardwood floors, exposed wood beams and doors. The asking price for this unique property is $30 million.
