Property description

This 2 story custom home was built to take advantage of this magical view site in 1964, and it has a classic 'mid-century' beach house feel! There's no describing in words the feeling of space the 60 plus feet of glass and panoramic view the Great Room provides...truly Bird's Eye. Whether cooking, dining, relaxing in front of the fireplace or watching TV, you can always see the moving water! I am the second owner, and the house retains most of the original touches! Sitting on the balcony overlooking the ocean, a salt-air breeze in your face with a drink in your hand, you'll feel like you're floating! 'Hmmmm, I wonder what the folks InLand are doing?'
In the evening, in addition to the Seals and Sea Lions, you can hear the crickets and frogs of the adjacent creek (which ends at Little Corona Beach).
The house is approx. 4000 s. f. on 2 floors. The upper floor is level with the street entry, easy to access through huge mahogany and glass double doors. You can see the ocean from the courtyard entrance :). There are 3 bedrooms and 2 full baths on this floor. The newly remodeled master BR has a large soaking tub and a beautiful glass enclosed shower.
The downstairs has 2 ocean view bedrooms, 1 full bath and large ocean view living room with fireplace and a separate kitchen. This is a great set up for large (or 2) families, because the kids can hang out on another floor from their parents! This gives the adults added peace and quiet....a real vacation treat.
We are minutes walk to the body surfing, snorkeling and sunbathing of Little or Big Corona, or Crystal Cove Beaches and CDM Village's Shopping and Dining. Our neighborhood abuts The Pelican Hill Resort Golf Course, and has rare private beach access to the private ShoreCliffs beach just south of Little Corona. Ride bikes (or skateboards...we do!) to Inspiration Point, Overlook Point, Balboa Island or along the coastal trails of Crystal Cove State Park to Laguna Beach. Fantastic multi-mile open space hiking and mountain biking up El Moro, with big ocean views is accessed from Crystal Cove as well (without getting in your car). Launch our 2 person ocean kayak from the protected harbor beach at the Cove, less than a 5 minute drive. We kayak up to the Balboa Pavilion year round.
Disneyland, Anaheim Stadium, Knott's Berry Farm and attractions are less than 30 minutes away by car. We are close to Airports: OC/SNA =10 minutes, Long Beach Airport 25 min, LAX 45 min! San Diego Zoo is just over 1 hour drive. It's 5 minutes by car south to the beaches, art and restaurants of Laguna Beach (including the famous Montage Resort and Spa. The great waves of Huntington Beach, home of the World Surfing Championships are 10 minutes north on Pacific Coast Highway 'PCH'.

Keywords: Stunning 180+ degree views from Laguna to the Palos Verdes Peninsula and Santa Monica Mountains. 220 feet above sea level, yet only 5 blocks distance from the ocean, the custom built home has over 60 feet of floor to ceiling glass overlooking the Pacific from the Great Room! Separate Living Room and Kitchen on the kids' floor, great for families so the adults get 'time away'!

Private Beach Access! For golfers, the renowned Pelican Hills Golf Course, home of two 18-hole championship golf courses designed by Tom Fazio, is located only 5 minutes away. While for shoppers, Fashion Island is less than a mile and half away and offers some of the best shopping in Southern California. For those simply looking for a pampered day of luxury, the famous Montage Spa is a 10 minute drive..

This seaside Villa is less than 30 minutes from world famous Disneyland and Knott's Berry Farm. Balboa Island is a bike ride away from the Villa where you can view the marina and have access to another beach, more restaurants, and of course more shopping. From Balboa Island you can take a ferry ride to the Balboa Peninsula where you will find the Balboa Fun Zone (arcades, Ferris wheel, merry-go-round, and more). From the Peninsula, you can take the Catalina Express Boat to Catalina Island!


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: I am the proud father of a bunch of great kids, My oldest is a senior at Berkeley, my alma mater. I'm from a large family...I'm one of mom has 25 grandchildren. We love to have family and friends over! Grew up on the coast here in SoCal and moved to Europe, then NYC after graduating from Cal. Having traveled extensively, I'm lucky to have great friends from around the world that love to visit California. Their jaws always drop when they walk into this house! I also have view homes in SF Bay Area, Lake Tahoe and on Lake Huron in Michigan. Nature's Beauty is spectacular...especially when experienced over several days from the tranquil privacy and comfort of a well furnished home. Check out my Tahoe House: vrbo/183871 or on Lake Huron: vrbo/671542

Why the Owner Chose Corona del Mar:
Since my childhood, Newport and Corona Del Mar were 'the place to be' in my family! I have fond memories of the beach, waves and water! Riding the Balboa Ferry boat to the Balboa Fun Zone for ice cream and Ferris Wheel rides and boating to Catalina Island are favorites. The good old days.... I got my Open Water Scuba Diving Certification on the beach here when I was 14. Surfing, Windsurfing, Kayaking, Fishing, Snorkeling and Sailing are all things we love to do...within minutes from the house! The Christmas Season is fantastic here, especially the week of the boat 'Parade of Lights'. The sunny days are often in the high 60's - low 70's, with clear skies and spectacular sunset views over Catalina Island! The intoxicating smell of the ocean air, mixed with the smell of burning wood of beach firepits and fireplaces is not to be missed. The ski areas of the SoCal Mountains are a 50-90 minute drive, offering you the chance to ski and surf on the same winter day! Bummer, right?

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
We enjoy serene views of the moving water, the coastline and Catalina Island throughout the day and evening, watching the boats come and go...while the ocean breeze blows through the house. I love to cook and entertain, and it's a joy to do it while gazing out at the Blue Pacific!!! Especially while Sinatra croons... From our Great Room, you can view the Fireworks Displays of San Pedro, Catalina, Long Beach, Seal Beach, Huntington Beach, Newport Beach, Newport Dunes and Emerald Bay!!! (In fact, you can hear the Disneyland Fireworks from our home during many months of the year)
