Breathtaking panoramic ocean views surround this rare beachfront estate in the exclusive seaside community of Three Arch Bay. Gracefully situated above a private cove and completely immersed in nature, the magnificent setting includes cobblestone paths that wind through the grounds, an oceanfront terrace spanning the width of the property, and an awe-inspiring lighthouse complete with viewing room and bathroom. Built by Edward H. Griffith, a famous director and producer in early American filmmaking, this historically significant residential compound remains a treasured landmark along the Laguna Beach coastline. In addition to the property's celebrated lighthouse, the compound encompasses three separate living structures; two guest cottages and a nautical-style main house with reclaimed finishes including custom millwork, cage elevator, porthole windows, and a ship's staircase. Private steps lead down to the sand, and a swimming pool carved into the cliffside is refilled daily by ocean
