Dana Point, California Beachfront Estate Auction

In a bit of interesting property news from California, the auction of an exclusive beachfront estate, The Beach House at Dada Point, brings to mind days gone by. The roaring 20's, Hollywood movie moguls, and the first inklings of what Southern California would resemble today.

Located in the city developed in 1923 by Los Angeles Times publisher Harry Chandler and General M.H. Sherman, Director of the Pacific Electric Railway Company, the so called "Dana Point Syndicate" invited all the heavy hitters of the day to invest in buying the original 1,388 acres beachfront and inland property for the project.

Fast forward past many developments and much history, and some of the original "Woodruff Homes" are still occupied. The Capistrano Beach affair, Teapot Dome, this area of California is not only charming, but full of intrigue as well.

The property is expected to bring excess of the $5 million reserve, somewhere in the neighborhood of the current owners $8.5 million purchase price.
