Description

IF THESE WALLS COULD TALK. IT WAS IN THE GARAGE OF THIS IDEALLY LOCATED OCEANFRONT COTTAGE IN 1950 THAT HOBIE ALTER SHAPED HIS FIRST SURFBOARDS AND ENDED UP SHAPING A WORLDWIDE INDUSTRY. The house itself has been in the Alter family since the 30's. Perhaps not surprisingly, it enjoys an unparalleled view of the surf breaks at Oak and Brooks street. Originally a SFR it was converted to 2 units (plus additional space) many years ago. Make no mistake, this is an original, very humble cottage and looks just as it did when Hobie was gluing up those balsa boards in 1950. But as they say, Location, Location, Location. Leave it in it's original vibe or renovate and make it your own. The views from the major rooms are remarkable and take you back to a time when Laguna was emerging on the forefront of lifestyle, the arts and surfing. This may be one of the most significant homes in Laguna historically speaking and as such, it MAY be eligible for Mills Act (check w/City) recognition and tax benefits. Upstairs is a 2-bd/1ba unit w/separate 1-bd/1ba downstairs (this was Hobie's hangout). The frozen-in-time garage looks exactly like it did in 1950 when Hobie began his global influence on surfing and sailing. This once-in-a-lifetime opportunity sits overlooking Laguna's best beaches and is in the heart of the "Hip District" with easy access to incredible shopping, restaurants, entertainment. THE AUTHENTIC ULTIMATE LAGUNA BEACH LIFESTYLE AWAITS!
