The contemporary Laguna Beach hilltop home of restaurateur Ivan Spiers has relisted at $6.995 million.

Completed in 2000 by local architect Horst Noppenberger from wood, stone, concrete, glass and steel, the four-bedroom house on Donna Drive sits on a 1-acre parcel in the Temple Hills community near downtown Laguna Village.

The home includes 5,241 square feet of living space, from the curving entry galleria to the gourmet kitchen that opens to a great room.

The great room also boasts a two-story-high wood beam ceiling and stacked stone fireplace. Above the open floor plan is a loft office space.

Sliding glass walls connect the indoors to the outdoors while framing views of the coastline, with Catalina in the distance.

All of the bedrooms are on the main level, including the master suite with a retreat that opens to panoramic ocean views.

The backyard boasts an infinity pool and spa.

Mark Christy of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices is the listing agent.

Property records show Spiers purchased the property in 2000 for $2.595 million. According to MLS history, the home has appeared on and off the market since 2008 when it listed at $10.995 million.

It has dropped a handful of times before it relisted at its current asking price on Aug. 6.

Spiers, a South Africa native, owns Mozambique and Skyloft, two Laguna Beach rooftop dining spots that feature live music.
