I've shared a lot of photos of Orange County homes in the past.
The above photo was taken from the sand, within a small cove, looking up at the house above.
When the tide is high, the sand is covered with water. When the tide is low, the staircase leads down to a nice private cove. You can see the (locked) gate in the stonework. There are spotlights on the wall which light up the ocean at night - making the view from above spectacular.
