Oversize beams and vintage timber lend to the rustic ambiance of this Italian Riviera-inspired residence in Laguna Beach. Designed by architect Bob White, with interiors by Michael S. Smith, the Old World atmosphere is furthered by a collection of imported stone fireplaces, a wine cellar set behind wrought iron bars and a formal library clad in hand-picked finishes. Outdoors, tiered grounds include a pool, an outdoor cabana and formal gardens, set off by sweeping ocean views.
