Looking for Mediterranean Revival clifftop villa with a private beach? Here is – the historic “Villa Rockledge” in Laguna Beach, California has been listed on sale for $30 million. Perched on a cliff above the Pacific Ocean with amazing views, this mansion is on the National Register of Historic Places. Built by Riverside’s Mission Inn developer Frank Miller beginning in 1918, the estate was formerly known as “Mariona”, named so after Miller’s second wife. After being bought in 1972 for the unbelievably low sum of $420K, the home stayed in the same family for 40 years before being placed on the market in 2009 for $34,9 million. Then the price was lowered and lowered until was sold at auction in 2012 for less than a third of the original ask. Now, the new owner hope to get $30 million.
The estate itself has more than 8,000 square feet of space, 12 bedrooms and 11 bathrooms. The main house still has some of its original hardwood floors, exposed wood beams and doors, as well as some 12 working fireplaces. Living space also include a separate building with six “villas”, each with separate entrance, perfect to use as guest suites, additional rooms or offices. It also has a saltwater pool accessible from home. There are also two garages and four car ports. From the house, stairs lead down to the 120-foot-long sandy beach.
