The Castle on Holly Street, Laguna Beach California

31123 Holly Drive


This is the first home we built and sold after moving to California from New England

Considered an unbuildable lot because of the steepness, we built a 5500 sf home with commanding ocean views. It was 112' from the street to the ridgline of the roof and 108 steps up the front walk to the entry door.

There is a wood-framed circular stair case inside the turret. The entry door is 4' wide and 10' tall.

112 feet from street to ridge line
