ABOUT EMERALD BAY
This enclave of about 500 homes is one of Laguna's most affluent. It is a highly prized, highly desired destination, thanks to its stunning ocean views and one of California’s only private beaches, offering sand-level access only to residents and their guests. The private beach offers parking for golf carts, a grassy park, tennis courts, picnic tables, fire pits and storage for beach gear. Those who value privacy, exclusivity and world-class amenities are attracted to the guard-gated community, which was established in 1929. Houses of every size and value, both beachfront and hillside, offer individuality within a range of styles that includes contemporary, Mediterranean and California craftsman. Almost every home has a view, with property prices ranging from about $3 million to $60 million. Emerald Bay is an unincorporated city of Orange County, with its own fire department, 24-hour patrolled security and service district.
