Custom-built Estate on Nearly an Acre is Adjacent to Newport Beach’s Ecological Reserve


Privately Gated Residence on Park-like Grounds is the First Time on the Market


Don’t miss this rare opportunity to own a piece of Newport Beach history. This is the first and only time this home has been on the market in more than 60 years. Enter through the private gate and take a step back in time. Custom-built with a Colonial flair, there are two fireplaces, a formal entry, wood beamed ceilings and built-in bookcases. Remodeled and expanded in 1980, it has been extremely well maintained with essential upgrades such as Andersen windows, and updated electrical and plumbing. With approximately 3,000 square feet, the floor plan offers four bedrooms, three baths, a family room, formal living room and dining room and a study. There are beautiful views of the grounds from all rooms with some mountain views. The lot is magnificently unique: with just under 40,000 square feet and measuring nearly an acre, this parcel is one of the few privately gated estate-size properties available in Newport Beach. The park-like grounds with mature trees and landscaping includes beautiful rose gardens, fruit trees and garden walking paths. There is ample room for separate guest quarters, a swimming pool, tennis court, or parking for an RV or boat. The three-car garage is set up for 220 amp service and was built to hold oversized vehicles with nine-foot ceilings, a depth of 25 feet and extra wide doors. It has built-in storage and room for a work bench. This lovely estate offers rural living but is conveniently close to the airport, freeways, world-class shopping, and just steps away from the Upper Newport Bay Ecological Preserve.
