A contemporary blufftop estate in Laguna Beach has hit the market for $60 million.

The price makes it the most expensive home for sale in Orange County since a $68 million hillside estate in Newport Coast withdrew from the multiple listing service Aug. 14. And it is a reasonable ask, its agent says.

Listing agent Andy Stavros of Douglas Elliman told the Wall Street Journal, which first reported the story, that several unsolicited offers for the property last year “helped determine our asking price.”

Set on a quarter-acre lot in Abalone Point, an exclusive area of guard-gated Irvine Cove, the mansion on Riviera Drive boasts 13,000 square feet of indoor-outdoor living. There are six en-suite bedrooms, a formal dining room that opens to a courtyard and entertainment spaces across three levels.

Entertainment areas include a home theater, a two-lane bowling alley with ball return and a billiards room.

In the backyard, there’s an infinity pool, spa and three fire pits.

The house was designed by Los Angeles architect Robert L. Earl, completed in 2001 and recently upgraded with “exquisite features and finishes throughout its bright and open floorplan,” the listing reads.

Architectural elements include imported French limestone floors, wood ceilings and fold-away and sliding glass doors.

An elevator near the entrance has service to all floors.

The main entrance of the house is on the second floor. It opens to the living room with its 22-foot ceilings, a towering fireplace surround and direct access to the loggia and main terrace.

There’s a breakfast nook, family room and arguably “the highest oceanfront view deck in Laguna Beach,” according to the listing, just off the third-level master suite.

A junior suite can be found on the bottom floor.

The seller was identified in the Wall Street Journal article as a company tied to real-estate investor John M. McPherson.
