Exclusive Waterfront Estate Reigns Over the Harbor


43 Linda Isle


 One of the most recognizable luxury estates on the California Riviera, 43 Linda Isle is a true Newport Beach landmark. With more than 133 feet of frontage and a dock that can accommodate a 130-foot yacht, plus smaller craft – the residence features spectacular views of the Turning Basin and Main Channel from its commanding location at one tip of Linda Isle. Setting the stage for these dramatic picture-postcard vistas is a mansion handcrafted by gifted artisans working in the media of stone, tile, mosaics, iron, wood, plaster, paint, bronze and textiles to create a masterpiece in five living.

Enter through a secluded portico into an Italianate paradise, where you are greeted by lush landscaping, a sparkling dip pool and spa, classical statuary and a stone pavilion with lanterns for al fresco, fireside dining. Enter the hoe through grand double-height glass and iron doors into a formal foyer with a sweeping staircase and views of the Harbor. The mansion’s “great room” encompasses a large formal dining room with soaring, two-story ceilings, an expansive formal living salon, a spacious bar with seating and service areas, and an intimate fireplace-warmed parlor – all boasting walls of glass affording views of the stone waterfront terrace and the Harbor beyond.

The open-format chef’s kitchen with breakfast room features an adjoining secondary catering kitchen and butler’s pantry for food preparation and the storage of china, crystal, silver and linens – with a separate service entrance and bathroom. Also on this, the main level, you’ll find a generously scaled executive office/gentleman’s study, a jewel-box powder room finished in fine stonework and Venetian plaster, climate-controlled wine storage, laundry facilities and a finished three-car garage with abundant storage.

Up the sweeping limestone staircase, with hand-wrought iron and brass rails, are the mansion’s more private, indulgent spaces. Here, the master wing comprises a spacious waterfront bedroom with inviting sitting area and fireplace, his and hers spa-inspired bathroom suites clad in exotic stone with a steam shower in his and deep jetted bathtub in hers, and expansive dressing rooms with built-in cabinetry and shelving. The master suite also includes a small concessions area and a secondary bedroom with water views and an en suite bath.

Beyond the master suite is a gracious upstairs lobby lounge overlooking the downstairs great room and Bay views, as well as two guest suites with en suite baths and views of the central garden courtyard. An additional upstairs guest suite with private entrance is modeled after a five-star hotel suite, with a raised bedchamber providing a garden view from amid the treetops, and a sunken living room with fireplace and wet bar.

The home also features advanced technology and security amenities, and access to Linda Isle’s private clubhouse, beach and tennis facilities.
