Newport Beach, California
Attention to detail – the commitment of creating an experience that makes a home timeless and lends an heirloom quality to the property. 1416 East Balboa Boulevard embodies the timeless home. With easy, fluid indoor/outdoor living this newly constructed residence within the charming Newport Beach community of Peninsula Point is positioned on an oversized lot just one home from the bay front and enjoys views of the bay, sparking city lights, and ocean, as well. Envisioned by architect Eric Aust and crafted by Clayton Builders the thoughtfully designed five bedroom, five-and-a-half bath floor plan is steeped in bespoke finish details, with each unique living space feeling comfortable and inviting. Curated fixtures, wire-brushed White Oak millwork, honed European marble and limestone all speak to the character of the home. Light-filled rooms shine throughout the day and take on a rich, seductive glow at twilight as the sun sets over the water. Fluent living, dining and professional-grade kitchen spaces allow for relaxed living and entertaining at the beach. The stunning ocean view primary suite enjoys a private terrace, vaulted ceilings, cozy fireplace, large dressing area and tranquil spa bath. Four additional guest bedrooms – one conveniently located on the first floor of the residence – allow for myriad visiting family and friends. The third-floor retreat enjoys a covered ocean view entertaining loggia, and a separate covered deck with a custom, handcrafted cedar hot tub and view of Newport Harbor. Additional notable appointments of the home include two car garage with separate golf cart parking portico, antique brass outdoor beach shower, home automation, back-up residential battery system, TESLA charger, solar panels, and three fireplaces. Embodying the legendary California lifestyle, this chic coastal home has undeniable panache.
