Enviably located and exceptionally inviting, this custom home displays rare and timeless craftsmanship on one of the most coveted blocks of exclusive Newport Heights. Set behind private-gated gardens inspired by classic vineyard estates, the grand Spanish Contemporary beckons through wrought-iron entry doors to over 5,100 sq ft of luxurious living space. Graceful stairs rise from the foyer beneath soaring 20-ft ceilings, joined by the first of multiple fireplace living areas bathed in light. Detailed millwork, custom French doors and coffered ceilings portray a rich architectural character, from the executive office with a custom wet bar and full bath, to the primary suite with a fireplace retreat, two balconies and dual walk-in closets. Bifold doors surround the private inner courtyard for a seamless transition to the built-in fire pit and gourmet cooking area. One flexible bedroom suite is located downstairs, where casual open-concept living joins the gourmet kitchen with a South African granite center island, Viking appliances and double ovens, butler’s pantry and custom cabinets. Upstairs hosts the primary and two additional bedroom suites, a large media room and terrace with an outdoor fireplace. Two new 1/2-ton HVAC, new water heaters, and a rear-load 3-car garage with race deck floors and built-in storage. All within moments of Newport Beach and Newport Pier, Lido Village, Balboa Island, freeways and the many shops and restaurants along Route 1 and 17th St.
