A Laguna Beach fixer-upper on three parcels totaling more than a half-acre has hit the market for $2 million.
As if that weren’t enough to tempt prospective buyers, the property is marketed as a “rare opportunity,” given two of the three parcels are buildable.
Set in the quiet neighborhood of lower Temple Hills, the 1,360-square-foot house built in 1948 is just a quick drive from downtown and the beaches. It has three bedrooms, two bathrooms and a large living room with picture windows that frame canyon and ocean views.
“The possibilities are endless,” said Lisa Barreth of Team Laguna, the co-listing agent. “It’s a huge lot. You’ve got a little slope in the front, but it’s mostly flat. Somebody could build their own little retreat there or come in and subdivide it.”
Or, a buyer could keep the existing home and invest in a cosmetic update.
Inside, the rooms are dated but habitable.
There’s a breakfast nook off the kitchen.
Fireplaces anchor the living room and master bedroom, where a pair of skylights are closed off.
Elsewhere, an original tongue-and-groove ceiling with exposed beams is cast in white.
Barreth holds the listing with broker Danielle Purcell, owner of Team Laguna and Re/Max Coastal Luxury.
