Perched on a pristine plot of Laguna's coastline, a contemporary home takes the long view.

"The bluffs above the ocean that dot Orange County's coastline offer some of the most spectacular views in Southern California. And nestled into theis beachfront idyll is one of the most headt-turning homes on Montage Drive. From the street the house looks fairly conventional, but step inside and you enter a 21st-century mashup of Asian and Craftman architecture realized through lots (and lots) of concrete.

The three-story house is one of more than a dozen private residences in the exclusive Montage Laguna beach resort, a 30-acre oceanfront community that was first built in 2003. Owners have acces to the hotel's spa, concierge and restaurant. Residents can even request a private chef from the hotel to cook their meals or an airport pick-up. Yet it's the three-bedroom, six bath hose itself, designed by Southern California architect Ed Lohrbach, that is most striking.
