McClean Design has created this spectacular modern beach house perched on a hillside overlooking the Pacific Ocean, located in Dana Point, Orange County, California. This sprawling 7,900 square foot house represents a new approach to California beach living, providing shelter from cold ocean breezes while maximizing views from as many rooms as possible.
The house is arranged around an entry courtyard which not only allows light to flow deep into the floor plan but also offers glimpses of the ocean through the transparent living space. The main materials in the house are oak and limestone with metal accents and a relaxing ambiance is achieved through the use of warm, soft beach tones.
What We Love: This striking beach house offers clean lines and modern aesthetics from the material palette to the furnishing selections. The rear of the home is made of entirely retractable glass providing a seamless connection to the terrace, garden, and infinity pool which reflects the coastline and ocean beyond.
