Laguna Beach, CA 92651
To own The Ark is to own a piece of Laguna Beach history, and to live in it is to live in a work of art. A magical house in a magical spot, it is one of those rare homes that has the power to truly enrich a life. A one-of-a-kind dwelling in one of the best places on earth - written by Scott Fitzgerrell, whose family lovingly owned the Ark for over 65 years. This historic Woods Cove oceanfront home, known as The Ark, is one of the finest Arts and Crafts Properties in Southern California. Built in 1923 by Laguna Beach architect Jean L. Egasse, the home was designed like a large boat and is replete with hand-tied rope work, hand-carved woods and beams, expert joinery and hand placed stonework. In 2006, the property was painstakingly restored by its current owners, two of Californias most dedicated preservationists, retaining all of its original architectural integrity, charm and whimsical style. Details include an ocean view living room with a timbered inglenook and massive stone fireplace, a beautifully designed kitchen, 3-view decks, and the Crows Nest, a studio apartment above the garage. This once in a lifetime opportunity of stewardship is enhanced with its own private stairway to one of the most coveted and picturesque sandy beaches in Laguna.
