Footage shows three multimillion-dollar homes sitting on the edge of a cliff in Dana Point, overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Though all three homes are considered safe to live in, one of the homes, a $15.9 million, four-bedroom property, appears to be extremely close to the cliff’s edge.

Owner’s Assurance and City Evaluation:

According to the New York Post, that home is owned by a local radiologist, 82-year-old Lewis Bruggeman, who told KCAL, “The house is fine, it’s not threatened, and it will not be red-tagged.” He added, “The city agrees that there’s no major structural issue with the house.”

Dana Point City Manager Mike Killebrew corroborated Bruggeman’s statement, telling CBS News that a geotechnical engineer and building inspector from the city went to Bruggeman’s home to evaluate the situation. After speaking with the homeowner, they deemed that there was “no imminent threat to that home.”

Damage from Landslide:

In footage from the home, it’s clear that part of the cliff slid off and fell into the ocean. The two homes that sit next to Bruggeman’s $15.9 million property are worth around $14.1 million and $12.9 million, per The Post.
