About the property

Historical Spanish-colonial revival impressive in every way, displaying a carefully preserved original character with gracious and inviting living spaces to transport you to peaceful times of a bygone era. This preeminent residence is a testament to timeless elegance and historical architectural craftsmanship from its original casement windows and red tiled roof with hipped and gabled lines to the striking hand-troweled stucco walls and exposed rafters replete throughout the interior, garage, and guest house. Built in 1928 and situated on a large 3/4 acre bluff-front lot overlooking the Pacific Ocean and Catalina, this storybook home stands as a symphony of verdant beauty steeped in a romantic old world provenance. Step inside this 4 bed, 3 bath estate and be delighted by interior spaces designed to be both welcoming and intimate, with cozy alcoves for quiet moments and larger gathering areas for entertaining. A crisp white interior highlights the home's century-old character—contrasting tiled floors with wood rafter ceilings and vintage details. The kitchen is a work of art, featuring appliances from the 1930's and layout with generous prep areas including a center island and a folding glass window that unites with the home's outdoor bar and barbeque area. The adjacent dining room faces the ocean with an arched picture window and exudes the warmth of a cozy fireplace. The living room also nestles around the ambiance of a fireplace, with prominent views from statuesque windows and glass doors. The vast interiors seamlessly unite to paver pathways that meander between such alfresco destinations as a custom firepit, pergola gazebo, and multiple settings that savor an eagle-eye ocean view. Exquisite landscaping, including fruit-bearing trees, create a sumptuous backdrop with an exclusive air of privacy. Picture windows throughout the home, including the primary bathroom, likewise place an emphasis on these picturesque views. This historical Doheny home in Capistrano Beach is known as Palisades Home #1. Built in 1928 and perfectly exhibiting the significance of post-WWI architecture, the home was commissioned by Ned Doheny, later owned by Harry Leyden, then afterwards, artist Louise Leyden and her husband, Don. With such a rich and cultured history, this home is a symbol of the area's most famous family who gave 3.5 miles of beachfront land to the state which is now known as Doheny State Beach.
