Location: Laguna Beach, California

Price: $9,995,000

For a house that enjoys such an extraordinary site, ravishing ocean views, and a sleek glassy facade, this sure is one Laguna Beach let-down. Never before have we been so happy to tell you that the house is not being sold furnished. This glassy manse, listed for $10,000,000, has plenty of potential, especially considering the awe-inspiring views. Hidden from the road, the house is connected by tunnel to a street-side garage that also boasts a car elevator. With four bedrooms and five baths, this is no tiny beach getaway, but a truly impressive seaside mansion. Just be sure to toss the cheap furniture.
