Property Description

Occupying the premier bluff front view location in all of Corona del Mar, this pristine single-story contemporary residence features walls of glass overlooking Newport Harbor, the channel entrance, Catalina Island and sunsets. Completed in recent years, this home is offered in impeccable, turn-key condition. An astounding architectural masterpiece, the notable scale and design of the residence have made it a landmark on the coast. The uniquely arcing bluff top separates the property from its adjoining neighbors creating uncommon privacy, while also opening the site to panoramic views. A generously proportioned open plan with over-height ceilings is complemented by the finest building materials, including select limestone walls and floors, exotic teak, walnut and mahogany millwork, imported marbles, and floor-to-ceiling custom bronze doors and windows. Relaxed, open, and light, the home is exceedingly comfortable and livable. The entry opens to a great room with sizable living and dining areas, as well as an open, sea-view kitchen with butler’s pantry. A broad, seaside view terrace runs the length of the home. It includes a covered and heated dining terrace, a full sun area, as well as a lap pool and spa. Every detail of the architecture was given great consideration as evidenced by the cascading, elliptical limestone steps that parallel the pool and transition the terrace directly into the water. This terrace is a most pleasant area, bathed in westerly sun and fresh ocean breezes. It is also very functional, as it seamlessly expands the interiors of the home to the out of doors. The terraced gardens below are covered in roses, Jacaranda, citrus, and Melaleuca. The master suite is private and features more exquisite materials, including curvilinear walls carefully paneled with select walnut. It has restful views of the garden courtyard, carefully planted with manicured specimen trees. A handsome and private den includes magnificently figured teak millwork and built-ins, while also opening to the harbor views. The composition of the home creates an ambiance of substance, while also being immediately relaxing. During the day, the coastal views are an inseparable part of the living experience found here. While in the evenings, the coastline and harbor are alight with dazzling city lights. Located in Irvine Terrace, the location is central Newport Beach’s most desirable amenities including the harbor, shops, dining, and Newport Center and Fashion Island.
