On a bluff along Orange County’s southern shores, a contemporary-style Mediterranean home overlooks the ocean at 33 Monarch Bay Drive. If it’s sun you’re seeking, you can enjoy it from the secondstory, wraparound terrace or from the private, open-air, interior courtyard
where a fireplace, outdoor kitchen, and spa invite relaxation.
The home’s 10,900 square feet are sunny and airy, too, thanks to sliding glass doors that stretch the length of the two levels. There are five en suite bedrooms, two of which have walk-out access to a grassy area overlooking the surf and sand.
The central living hub is on the top floor and has a kitchen with dual granite-topped islands, a fireside family room, and a dining area. Step out onto the limestone terrace for a closer look at the unobstructed view. Built in 2003, the $18 million home has a wine cellar, a bar, two elevators, an automation system, and a garage for three cars. Further amenities come courtesy of the Monarch Bay guard-gated community. They include Monarch Beach, lighted tennis courts, and the Monarch Bay Club. Listed by John Stanaland, 949-689-9047
