26 SHORELINE DRIVE—NEWPORT COAST—$14,700,000
Situated on the premier view lot in prestigious Pelican Point, this gracious Spanish Colonial style custom residence is reminiscent of the great estates of Santa Barbara and Montecito. The private 15,000 sq. ft. parcel is situated on an elevated corner and takes in panoramas of the adjacent fairways, the coastline from Palos Verdes to Laguna, and the ocean and Catalina beyond. This unique vantage point captures the beaches of Newport as well as the coves and city lights of Laguna. The exquisite yet understated residence is near to 9,000 sq. ft. and includes every desirable amenity. Generously-scaled public rooms all open through walls of French doors to the gardens and ocean views. The formal gardens are complemented by a beautiful pool and view terraces, intermingled within the meticulously maintained grounds. The master suite (one of five bedroom suites) includes an ocean view study, a large terrace, as well as sumptuous bath and dressing area. The tasteful interior appointments were designed by Concept Studio, and include the very finest materials. There is also a 2,000 sq. ft. subterranean garage and elevator. Pelican Point is an exclusive, guard-gated, community on the ocean, south of Corona del Mar. Residents have private access to miles of beaches.
