Car: Recommended

For those interested in Theme Parks, Disneyland, Knott’s Berry Farm, and Universal Studios in Hollywood are within a short drive from Corona del Mar. A beautiful day trip or overnight to Catalina Island is in reach by ferry from Balboa Island just minutes away, but you will feel like you are on a unique island as there are no cars allowed. If you are into history or art, don't miss the beautiful Mission at San Juan Capistrano, The Richard Nixon Presidential Library, or plan a day to visit the world renowned Getty museum in Los Angeles, the Bowers Museum in Santa Ana, or the Huntington Museum and Gardens in Pasadena.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: I fell in love with Corona del Mar after spending summers enjoying the beautiful beaches and activities of Newport Beach and Laguna Beach and I couldn't wait to live here. I did so for 20 years and personally built this home.

Why the Owner Chose Corona Del Mar, Newport Beach, CA, USA:
This home is so unique, it is called the Jewel Box, the Melon House, or the French Chateau of the Village. It is just one block from the ocean and because it is on a corner lot facing the ocean, it is one of the most photographed houses in Corona del Mar. This custom home is one-of-a-kind, a 2 bedroom, 2 1/2 bath residence located in the highly coveted heart of this famous seaside community. This property features hardwood floors, top quality construction, Venetian plastering in every room and bathroom, and the most up-to-date and superior quality amenities all the way through. State-of-the-art architecture, fabulous furnishings from all over the world, complete with marble and granite counter tops including brands: SubZero, Bosch, Miele and Jade. This property is in a class of its own! Luxury urban-beach lifestyle at its best! This property is less than one block from the beach, yet you can hear the ocean sounds at night from the balcony or patio or just lying in bed with the windows open. Unusual curved beams showcases the living room with matching curved window and fireplace hearth of travetine are just a few of the features that elevate this home above the rest.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
Beautifully designed and furnished, this home is a total turn-key and only requires your suitcase and toiletries. As listed, the property features stained glass throughout, unique mosaic entry and TWO bedrooms—each with its own bathroom. The master bedroom, you’ll find a queen size bed made up with the finest linens, with two patios, one facing the ocean, and the other a secluded retreat with an ocean view. The master bath also has a built in steam shower, rain shower and body spray for the true spa experience. The other bedroom and bath on the main floor is uniquely different featuring a full size bed and travetine bath with etched glass on the shower walls and hand painted sink. The kitchen and dining room open up to a patio ideal for your afternoon cocktail, reading a book or watching the sunset. The dining room seats six and the eat-in kitchen is casual seating for two. The home is equipped with 46' LCD HD smart TV with surround sound in the master, ShowTime, stereo speakers throughout the house, the front patio and garage as well as TV's throughout the house. Wi-Fi, air conditioning, and cable TV and phone are available, as well as a security system. Two car garage with laundry facility (washer/dryer, ironing board) are available for your additional convenience. This is the perfect spot for up an executive, a couple, and family of 3-4 in transition looking for a relaxing beach vacation. The home is ideally situated for exploring all the wonderful sights that southern California has to offer, a yet a world far away from the hustle and bustle of urban traffic and congestion, but just 10 minutes to John Wayne Airport.
