About Pinecrest Residence

The Pinecrest Residence in Laguna Beach, California, designed by Anders Lasater Architects in 2014, stands as a model of modern beach house design. This once tired and worn 1950s rancher has been transformed into a light-filled contemporary farmhouse, now perfect for a growing family.

Breathtaking Exterior with Ocean Views

As you approach the Pinecrest Residence, the exterior showcases clean lines and modern aesthetics. The patio area is designed for relaxation, offering stunning views of the ocean. A small pool invites you to take a dip while enjoying the coastal breeze. The use of white paneling and expansive windows enhances the connection with the surrounding environment.

Spacious and Sunlit Interiors

The minimalist decor, featuring white walls and comfortable seating, creates a welcoming atmosphere. The living area seamlessly transitions into the open kitchen, equipped with state-of-the-art appliances and ample counter space, perfect for family gatherings.

The master bedroom continues the theme of simplicity and elegance. A cozy bed with crisp linens is flanked by rustic wooden nightstands, adding a touch of warmth. Large windows in the bedroom ensure you wake up to beautiful ocean views every morning.

Moving through the house, the interior design emphasizes functionality and style. Each room is thoughtfully organized, offering both comfort and practicality. The careful selection of furniture and decor pieces reflects a beach-inspired aesthetic, ensuring a harmonious flow throughout the home.

The Pinecrest Residence exemplifies how a dated structure can be reimagined into a contemporary haven, embracing both the sun and the sea. The collaboration between Anders Lasater Architects and the homeowners has resulted in a stunning beach house that meets the needs of modern family living while capturing the essence of coastal California.
