Do you love Spanish Colonial architecture and low property taxes? Historic PROPERTY TAX BENEFIT TRANSFERS WITH TITLE - SAVES BUYER over $26,000/yr! (NEW TAX LAW limits deduction to $10k.) Designed by world famous architect, Paul R. Williams, AIA, honored as the Gold Medal Winner for his prolific career, best known as "The Architect of the Stars". Proudly listed on the National Register of Historic Places, this 1928 Spanish Colonial Revival style will awe you with character and charm from its 11' coffered ceiling to its beautifully restored oak and "picket tile" floors, round library, secret wet bar, basement, four balconies and awesome ocean views. The 5th & 6th bedrooms are now the dressing room & closet. Restored by its current owners for the past 21 years, the "Goldschmidt House" legacy now transfers to the 5th lucky owner.

This home sits on two thirds of an acre with views of Catalina Island, Dana Point harbor, Northern hills, City lights & San Clemente Island. The property is graced with blue agave, palm trees, eucalyptus, stone pine, veggie gardens, an orchard and a vineyard. No HOA/melloroos. Exterior improvements (in Spanish style) are welcome, full discretion on interior. Large, TURNKEY home on an expansive, private property with AMAZING ocean views and huge TAX BENEFITS designed by one of the world's greatest architects.
