Corona del Mar

Located on a promontory with spectacular views of Little Corona Beach, this home was designed in 1960 by Carl Maston. Situated on a steeply sloping site with dry stack stone walls, the landscape provides places to explore, relax and dine al fresco. Sculptural, hardy, drought-tolerant plants recall forms and colors of marine life in the tide pools below. Brilliantly colored Flax and Aloes provide counterpoints to the soft greens of the surrounding coastal chapparal.

  • Planting was selected to thrive in conditions of salt spray and wind
