The latest Laguna Beach home to hit the market is a 32 million dollar contemporary craftsman stunner. One of only a handful of houses that can call the Montage Laguna Beach home, 33 Shreve takes the cake. I have always loved the simple and graceful lines of craftsman and their arts and crafts style English cousins, yet this new infusion piques my interest. Modernity is inevitable, yet can easily be datable since "modern" architecture is constantly evolving.

The disappearing doors caught my fancy immediately. Indoor and outdoor life should easily commingle in Orange County, especially at a seaside resort.

The cool and harsh modern lines are tempered by the rich woods and walls of glass. The most striking part of the composition are the garage doors; they are PERFECT.

  1. Though this is not my style, I think its well done and love how it brings the outdoors in. Afterall Laguna is such an amazinly beautiful area and the natural landscape is unreal...with the mountains the Pacific just below, I think its well done.
