Murals and enchanting wisteria

This hidden Laguna gem features a 2.5-acre garden with more than a dozen unique trails and a pristine mid-century modern home built by Knowlton Fernald in 1958 on the slope of Boat Canyon. Tucked under towering canary pines, planted from one-gallon saplings in 1959, there are more than 500 plant species of which about 150 are California natives. The wondrous variety gives the garden color and texture during every season. The home’s walls of glass offer breathtaking ocean views. The original furnishings give the home a rare authenticity, fitting of a true Laguna artist.
