66 Emerald Bay: A Resort Lifestyle

With five bedrooms, 10 bathrooms, a gym, media lounge, temperature-controlled wine wall, beach-ready wellness center with an outdoor shower, in-ground spa, and direct access powder bath and Nordic sauna, 66 Emerald Bay is a contemporary masterpiece. 



Just a Few Feet From the Beach, 66 Emerald Bay a Nearly 5,000-square-foot Residence Boasts Unparalleled Views and Stylish Interiors

Designed by the highly renowned C.J. Light Associates, this Emerald Bay estate located in Laguna Beach required more than six years of planning and construction (by Divita Builders) to bring it to life.

“Seductive, refined and influential, 66 Emerald Bay is a manifestation of boundless creativity and trend-inspiring style,” says Tim Smith, founder and principal of The Smith Group at Coldwell Banker Realty.

“Emphasizing unmistakable flair and dedication to luxury, it is graced with expansive beach frontage just across from the sand.”

The exceptional panorama over the ocean, bluffs and Catalina Island can be admired from both the 1,000-square-foot outdoor area and the 5,000-square-foot interior spaces. Inside, fabric and Venetian plaster wall treatments, Afrormosia wood ceilings, limestone floors, walnut wood paneling, custom Gennaro lighting and Gaggenau appliances contribute to the elegant yet warm look of this home. 

Cutting-edge technology features enhance the environment, including James Loudspeaker audio, and Sony televisions and a projector. Modern HVAC, automatic recessing shades and pocketing glass doors, a security system, Lutron custom engraved keypads and a lighting system that shifts in color temperature and intensity throughout the day to mimic the sun complete the experience. 

The four-car garage with two electric vehicle charging stations and the exclusive access residents of Emerald Bay have to the private white-sand beach, a junior Olympic-size pool, six tennis courts, parks and playgrounds, among other amenities, can convince anyone that this is living in paradise.
