$25 million Strand home hovers over ocean

The priciest home for sale in Dana Point, located at the Strand at Headlands, has ocean views that will make your jaw drop.

I would know, I was there myself.

And yes, my jaw dropped more than once.

Just upon entering the home at 47 Strand Beach Drive from the front door, the ocean fills the back windows of the home and the sound of the surf is crashing outside.

This home is listed at $24,999,000, and I must admit, I was skeptical of the high price (and still am, given the nature of the wounded luxury market) from just looking at the photos. But after seeing the home in person, I didn’t even recognize it from the photos I saw beforehand.

This home is breathtaking and cohesive, down to the textures used throughout.

Once you step outside, you literally feel like the ocean is directly beneath you. An infinity pool gives way to the crashing white water just outside the house. Words cannot describe the enormity of the ocean view, since it engulfs you from the home’s patio.

Though the custom home has been on the market for 49 days now, listing agent Mo Dawn says that the home was just completed.

Featuring a Cape Cod theme, the home is light and airy. Architect Chris Light designed the home, and the details throughout reflect the desire to style the home for an artist.

This listing has nine pages of amenities listed, but I’ll just list the more notable ones.

  • 5 bedrooms, 6 baths, 2 powder rooms, 9,700-square-feet
  • Hickory floors
  • Verde Van Gogh granite fireplace
  • Disappearing doors in the family room to the outdoor terrace
  • Pool/spa
  • Elevator
  • 4-car garage
  • Capiz shell chandelier in stairwell
  • Art/yoga studio
  • Direct beach access
  • Laundry room on all 3 levels
