Property description

Luxuriate at 'Pazamor' in the romance, glamour, and idyllic elegance of a bygone era.

This very special historic home, designed by Wallace Neff in 1928 and restored with modern amenities, old-world sensibilities and unique attention to detail, is the ideal place to rest or play. At four stories tall, Pazamor is the tallest house on the peninsula with 360 views of ocean, bay, and coast from Palos Verdes to Dana Point.

Each of the five bedrooms has its own full bath, three of which have jacuzzi tubs. The well-appointed chef's kitchen can be stocked to your specifications. One of the best features of the house is the private and spectacular roof-top deck. In warm weather, it's the perfect place to sit out and watch for shooting stars. There is a steamroom adjacent to the game room with pool table, beer tap, wok/BBQ kitchen, and conga drums. Outside is a large patio on the bayfront, with a private pier and direct access to all the attractions on Balboa Bay via assorted watercraft on the dock.

The spectacular Newport Beach, with its boardwalk and the famous 'Wedge,' is two short blocks away for those who prefer to play in the surf and sand. Of course, all the attractions of Orange County are close-by - theme parks, shopping, dining, hiking and biking and gallery hopping.

Whether you choose to rejuvenate in utter privacy or to share your good fortune with friends and family, your stay at Pazamor will be one of your most cherished memories. We hope you will enjoy it so much that you return often.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 1998

About: The owner is a full-time resident of Fullerton, CA, but he stays in Pazamor once in a while to relax and to visit his girlfriend, the lovely Rose Wilder, a 50-foot wooden sailboat docked in front of the house. One of his many interests is restoring old buildings, and Pazamor is the most recent of five.

Why Balboa Peninsula:
The house was purchased as a restoration project. It is a Wallace Neff designed home, originally built in 1928. By the time the restoration was finished, the owner had become too fond of the place to sell it. He feels that this is simply the prettiest house in the best location on the water in Orange County. It's a great pleasure to share it with other people who can appreciate it.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Wake up to catch the local college crew teams row by on glassy pink water. Take your coffee on the Bay Terrace dining table. Walk in the sand or along the boardwalk on the Pacific side of the peninsula. Kayak up to the Cannery or the Fun Zone, taking in all the spectacular boats and homes along the way to dinner Explore the Back Bay and do a little birdwatching. Play a game or two of pool as the steaks cook on the grill, then soak away any remaining stress in one of the four jacuzzi tubs before you sink into bed for a long, peaceful night's sleep. Pazamor practically demands that you relax.
