About Strand Beach

Nestled along the pristine shores of Dana Point, California, the Strand Beach project, designed by the Carl Akins Company in 2018, epitomizes the fusion of contemporary design and coastal living. As you approach the ocean-front residence, the seamless integration of natural stone and modern architecture beckons with promises of luxury and tranquility.

Contemporary Elegance Meets Coastal Serenity

The exterior of the Strand Beach residence exudes sophistication with its clean lines and expansive glass windows that afford uninterrupted views of the Pacific Ocean. During the day, the sunlight dances on the natural stone façade, while at dusk, the house becomes a beacon of warmth and comfort against the twilight sky. Stepping stones lead to a grand entrance, setting the stage for the opulence within.

An Interior Tapestry of Style and Comfort

Inside, the living room unfolds in a symphony of light and space, with a two-story ceiling that creates a sense of grandeur. Here, the interior design weaves a narrative of refined taste, from the artwork that punctuates the walls to the elegant staircase that leads the eye—and the guest—upwards.

Transitioning to the heart of the home, the kitchen and dining area reveal a mastery of form and function. Marble countertops and sleek, wooden cabinetry echo the home’s exterior blend of natural and contemporary elements. This space, designed not just for cooking but for gathering, merges effortlessly with the outdoor dining area, blurring the lines between inside and out.

The master bathroom serves as a private retreat, with its free-standing tub and panoramic view of the ocean. It’s a space that promises rejuvenation, with clean, crisp lines and a minimalist approach that prioritizes uncluttered serenity.

Luxury in Every Detail

Each additional room in the Strand Beach residence, from the cozy corners ideal for contemplation to the expansive outdoor terraces, has been crafted with the same meticulous attention to detail. The design leverages natural light, quality materials, and thoughtful layout to ensure that every moment in the home feels like an escape.

As evening falls, the outdoor living areas come alive. An outdoor fireplace adds a cozy touch to the terrace, perfect for intimate gatherings or solitary reflection. Here, the sound of the waves provides the ultimate backdrop to an extraordinary living experience.

Strand Beach is more than just a residence; it’s a statement of living artfully and effortlessly at the water’s edge. Through the visionary work of the Carl Akins Company, this home stands as a testament to the beauty of modern design meeting the timeless allure of the ocean.
