Laguna Niguel boasts a variety of real estate lifestyles, from entry-level homes to high-end luxury estates; from one bedroom condos to panoramic ocean-view properties. Sorry, there are no horse properties or high rises. See Nellie Gail for the horse properties and check out Irvine for high rise living if that floats your boat.
For the upper-end custom homes we have several gorgeous communities in the southern end of Laguna Niguel. Monarch Point is on the west side of Niguel Summit with awesome ocean views, and at the foot of the summit we have the guard-gated community of South Peak. South Peak still has some buildable lots.
On the southeastern side of the city one can buy beautiful custom homes in Ocean Ranch Estates or even larger homes on larger lots in Bear Brand Ridge.
For those who would rather downsize and not have the maintenance, Laguna Niguel has many condo and townhome complexes at reasonable prices. Along both sides of well known Laguna Niguel Country Club one can purchase a condo with a two-car garage and watch the golfers from the balcony.
Some buyers like the secure feeling of a guard- gated community. There are quite a few in Laguna Niguel. Most guard-gated communities are manned 24 hours a day and record the license plate of any visitors. Some of my clients would rather live in ungated tracts, though, so friends can visit without screening.
Once you have lived in a home with a panoramic view like I have, you become spoiled and Laguna Niguel has plenty to spoil you with. If you are new to the area you may have noticed that there are no straight streets. The streets follow the valleys that wind around the hills which have many view properties. I call Irvine the “flat lands” and can’t understand the attraction.
By the way views have a subjective value ranging from thousands to tens of thousands of dollars but it is worth every penny. Oh, did I mention that anyone living in Laguna Niguel can be at a world famous beach in ten minutes or less?
It just doesn’t get any better than living in Laguna Niguel.
