Smithcliffs Real Estate
The secluded, guard-gated community of Smithcliffs in North Laguna Beach is perched along a scenic seaside bluff between Emerald Bay and Crescent Bay that is graced with some of the most stunning architecture on the California coast. Within walking distance to Laguna Village and just a short stroll from Heisler Park, this exclusive enclave of luxurious estates all enjoy unparalleled views of the Pacific Ocean to Santa Catalina Island. An idyllic oasis with a storied history, Smithcliffs enjoyed notoriety during the roaring 20’s as an escape for Hollywood celebrities.
Colorful socialite Florence Pancho Barnes, piloted her famous friends to a private landing strip on the property and hosted lavish parties in which Laguna Beach’s resident Lady Godiva would ride horseback in the nude with friends along the shore. Owned afterwards by oil tycoon Lon Smith, then developer Gary Brinderson, who subdivided the land to make way for the lavish European and Mediterranean style estates that make up the Smithcliffs community today. The sought-after and select market of only 22 private estates for sale or lease in Smithcliffs can make it a challenge to locate a property that meets your specific search criteria as many are not marketed on the MLS. Please inquire about “pocket listings” that are not posted to the internet in the exclusive Smithcliffs neighborhood.
