About 2495 Riviera Drive, Laguna Beach:
Featuring 115 linear feet on the beach, the approximately 7,200 square foot residence includes five bedrooms and nine baths. Completed in 2012, this striking residence perfectly embodies the promise of such an extraordinary oceanfront parcel.  The defining elements of California design – walls of glass, generously scaled rooms, a central courtyard, an informal plan, and correlated indoor/outdoor living – have been successfully incorporated into the design.

Clad in mahogany, bronze, limestone and glass, the substance of the structure is undeniable. Seamless transitions between interiors and exteriors evidence the transparent design complements this one-of-a-kind oceanfront setting. Offered well below the cost, this is an exceptional opportunity which will not come again.

Major League All-Star Pitcher, Eddie Guardado and his wife Lisa established The Eddie Guardado Foundation, a non-profit 501(c)(3) in 2008 after their youngest child, Ava, was diagnosed with autism. Lisa and Eddie understand the emotional and financial hardships families impacted with autism experience and founded the Eddie Guardado Foundation to help other families receive access to therapy and treatments that they could not otherwise afford.

In January 2011, The Eddie Guardado Foundation joined forces with ACT Today! (Autism Care and Treatment Today!), as both non-profits share the mission of providing awareness of and access to effective therapies for children with autism.
