LA CASA PACIFICA IS THE MOST SIGNIFICANT OCEANFRONT ESTATE IN SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA. Once home to President Richard M. Nixon, it has been the setting of numerous social and political events in its storied past. It is comprised of two parcels totaling 5.45 seaside acres with 480 lineal feet on the beach. Featured three times in Architectural Digest, the Spanish Colonial Revival architecture is both rustic and elegant. The gleaming white structures contrast perfectly against the vibrant colors of the lush greenery that surrounds them. Stands of palms and Monterey Cypress sway in the breezes, connected by expanses of emerald lawns and impeccably kept seaside gardens. The completely walled compound affords panoramic views of the ocean, islands, and sunsets from its preferred elevation. There are approx. 15,000 sq. ft. among all the structures on the property, which include a restored and modernized ca. 1927 main residence of approx. 9,000 sq. ft.; an entertaining pavilion; a two-bedroom guest house; a pool; a lighted N/S tennis court; and assorted staff buildings. San Clemente is renown for the ‘most idyllic climate in the world’ and is easily accessible to Newport Beach, Los Angeles and the best of Southern California’s amenities.
