The Strand at Headlands in Dana Point has earned bragging rights for selling more than $54 million in luxury homesites and homes in January. The new sales include an oceanfront Hamptons-inspired Cape Cod that closed escrow on January 14th for just shy of $20 million and seven ocean view homesites. One wealth manager, and Strand owner, attributed the surge in new sales to the recent correction in the stock market and the shift from equities to hard assets.
The Strand’s Director of Sales Jeff Golden, who has more than 30 years in luxury land and new home sales, credits this extreme uptick in Strand sales to a very simple supply-and-demand economic principle. “The Strand is the best kept secret in Orange County. There’s nothing like The Strand anywhere along the Southern California Coast,” said Golden. “As people start to discover or rediscover The Strand, they start to understand The Strand’s tremendous value and the scarcity of large vacant oceanfront homesites in a new beach front community. Strand homesites are going fast.”

This is a love story. As in any love story worth the time it takes time to read, this one has it all: a dramatic setting, likable characters, romantic tension and a satisfying conclusion. Such is the case for Lynn and Gary Hanson who recently completed building their dream home at The Strand at Headlands.
“Lynn and I were searching for the perfect piece of property to build our home. When we landed at The Strand, we knew it was a match made in heaven,” explains Gary, from the balcony of his breathtakingly beautiful 7,600 sq. ft. “beach house” perched above Strand Beach. “It was love at first sight.”
Falling in love was the easy part. Building a home from scratch has it’s challenges, Gary admits. But the challenges of designing and building a home from the ground up not only intrigued the Hansons, “it egged us on.”
“All it took was one look at the Strand’s beachfront setting and its panoramic ocean views to know that it would be worth the effort. Lynn and I are entrepreneurs. We love this kind of thing.”
Lucky in love, lucky in life, the saying goes but for the Hansons, choosing the perfect homesite was more deliberate. Out of a 118 homesites at The Strand to choose from, the Hansons chose a site located in the South Strand on Shoreline Drive. It was the homesite’s 180 degree unobstructed views that they fell in love with.
In fact, the views from the Hanson’s property encompass the Strand’s 32-acre Conservation Park and expand all the way to San Diego, Catalina and Palos Verdes. The homesite even has magnificent views of Saddleback Mountain eastward.
But it wasn’t until they actually framed their home that they realized that every room would have breathtakingly beautiful ocean, city lights and mountain views.
“Picking such an amazing property had a lot to do with dumb luck,” says Gary, who is humble to the core. “Every lot at the Strand is unique and has great views so it wasn’t that easy zeroing in on the lot that was right for our family. I give Chris Light, our architect and Russ Schwimm, our builder a lot of credit for positioning the home on the lot in a way that captures the best views from every room.”
The inspiration for the Hanson’s home came from The Strand’s 9,000 sq. ft. oceanfront Beach Club designed by iconic Laguna Beach architect Mark Singer. The Hansons incorporated the Beach Club’s use of limestone floors and walls, 18-foot high, floor-to-ceiling glass doors and windows that seamlessly connect the indoor and outdoor spaces. An almost lot line to lot line pool and barbecue area complete the outdoor space.
Sustaining a love affair takes time and attention. One look at the Hanson’s newly completed home tells you that this romance took nurturing. “We put our heart and soul into designing this home,” says Lynn, who, along with Gary, did all of the interiors without the help of a designer. “We took a less-is-more approach to the entire project. We think that approach paid off.”
The couple focused on the huge amount of volume and open space in the home and selected furnishings that would enhance the space and views not detract from it. The Hanson’s instincts scored. Artist Leroy Neiman lithographs add splashes of color throughout the home while soft subtle whites, beiges and blues accent the home’s architectural features like it’s sweeping mahogany staircase and stone floors.
It’s been two years since the Hansons first fell in love with The Strand and any objective observer can see that the honeymoon is far from over.
“There is no place like the Strand,” Gary smiles. “We love our home, we love the setting and we especially love our new neighbors. It’s a great place to call home.”

The Strand at Headlands, Southern California’s final beachfront community, enjoyed a robust first half of 2015 with more than $70 million in sales
Sales included 11 panoramic ocean view homesites and two custom homes. One of the homes, a soft contemporary located on the 2nd row in the North Strand, broke Orange County records for the highest price-per-square-foot home not located on the oceanfront. The family who purchased the Chris Light designed home is from Australia and divide their time between Dana Point and Australia.
Buyers from Minnesota purchased the second home to sell this year at the Strand. The craftsman-styled beach home designed by Bob White, and located in the South Strand, sold for just under $6 million. The family searched the Southern California coast for their dream beach house and finally found it at the Strand.
Nine North Strand homesites and two South Strand homesites also sold. Two of the recent buyers were existing Strand homeowners, who bought a homesite and built, and now are building again, confirming the Strand’s excellent value.
The recent buyers said that they appreciated the Strand’s easy access to the Ritz-Carlton and St. Regis Resorts, Monarch Links Golf Course and its oceanfront private beach club, with its lounge, beachside pool & spa and state-of-the-art fitness center.
The Strand is set on 121 acres with miles of coastal trails and five coastal parks including its 32-acre Conservation Park.
Custom ocean view homesites range from $2.9 million to $14.750 on the oceanfront.
Inventory in the luxury home market, particularly in South Orange County beach communities, is shrinking. With the premier real estate agents in South County scrambling for new quality product, it appears that luxury custom home spec builders have heard the call and are rising to fill the demand.
Recently, The Strand at Headlands has seen a substantial uptick in interest from these builders. These custom home builders see the value in having all entitlements in place from the coastal commission as well as one of the quickest turn around times in the area for getting through design review. In fact, there are currently six of these custom builders’ homes in different stages of the building process.
The Strand at Headlands has blue ocean views from every one of the 118 homesites as well as white sand and white water views from our oceanfront homesites, and other select homesites. In this final oceanfront community in Southern California, amenities include; a 9,000 sf Private Beach Club with commercial kitchen, bar and lounge area, state of the art fitness center, pool and spa, direct beach access, three miles of hiking trails, 70 acres of open space and 24/7 guard gated.
