"Heaven at the Top of the World"

Top of the World is one of the most beautiful neighborhoods in the unique town of Laguna Beach. It earned its name due its elevation of 1,000 feet, although it’s located only 2.5 miles from the ocean. Anns Lane is at the very top of Top of the World. It’s a narrow, hilly street with only about a dozen houses. Some of the original homes in the area were built on Anns Lane, but most of the small older homes have been remodeled or replaced by larger and more modern structures.

Some of the homes on Anns Lane have stupendous views of the Pacific Ocean, while others have a panoramic view of the wilds of Laguna Canyon and a large swath of Orange County. Alta Laguna Park is a few blocks away and there are several challenging hiking trails nearby. An elementary School is a couple of blocks from Anns Lane, a middle school is a mile down the hill, and Laguna Beach High School is a mile further.

Laguna Beach is a small town (population about 24,000) that attracts thousands of visitors each summer due to its scenic beaches and art festivals. The town recently gained fame on MTV’s Laguna Beach reality show. Before that show was filmed, Laguna Beach had a reputation as an artist’s colony.

The atmosphere on Anns Lane reflects the rustic, funky past of Laguna Beach. Coyotes and deer sitings aren't unusual. Some of the residents have lived there for decades and are very close. When the town below is crawling with tourist, the homeowners on Anns Lane are above it all, enjoying their little piece of heaven.
