A Home Theater, Private Beach, Game Room and Wine Cellar Is Only the Beginning of This Storybook Estate

Perched above bluffs at the edge of a sought after Corona del Mar neighborhood is a home with almost an acre of land, over 11,000 square feet of living space and endless views of the Pacific. As one of architect Brion Jeanette’s most alluring creations, each aspect is dripping with style and sophistication. This storybook-inspired home offers both charm and elegance with old-world characteristics set in a bright atmosphere, reminiscent of villas along the south of France. And it’s on the market.
“One of the most notable features of this home is custom woodwork throughout,” says Garrett Weston, the selling agent. The entryway floor is as stunning as it is refreshingly uncommon; octagon shapes framed in hardwood set the stage for the rest of the rare artistry found throughout the home. Exposed wood beams and accents of deeply toned wood against the cream-colored walls create an intimate and inviting ambiance amidst the expansive home. Homes for Sale CDM
Floor-to-ceiling views bring the outside in. Powder blue skies and cerulean seas become the ever-changing custom artwork. The home has four stories; the great room’s location is on the entry-level. A grand solid-wood mantle contains the dark marble fireplace with custom built-in cabinets on both sides. The sizable, castle-like dining area includes a wine cellar, and the kitchen’s moody palette creates a beautiful paradox to the soft hues of nature.
A stately staircase winds up to the luxurious master bedroom on the top floor. A patio off the master allows the salty, fresh air to breeze through, and lavish his-and-her bathrooms round out the royal room. Four additional bedrooms with en suites allow family and friends to enjoy opulent visits with privacy. More room for entertaining is located below with a game room and home theater, and an underground garage fits up to eight cars. An elevator servicing all four floors makes getting around even more comfortable.
There are plenty of options outdoors for gatherings or to simply take in the beautiful views off the back of the house. Two large patio areas for dining outside are perfect for all seasons. The covered outdoor dining area overlooks the ocean, and a sun-drenched al fresco-style patio provides a hideaway from the Santa Ana winds. A fire pit over the bluff is a place to create memories, from roasting s’mores to telling stories. “Being able to walk right down to your fire ring, roast marshmallows and have some wine—it’s like straight out of a magazine,” explains Weston. A staircase follows the jagged hillside descending to the sand. With no other more accessible way to the beach, it’s as private as California gets!
Each of the four levels delivers unrivaled views, and the lush landscape lends an illusion of seclusion. “Years in planning and impossible to recreate, this is a rare opportunity to acquire a trophy property,” says Weston. Straight out of a fairy tale, this is an ideal home to grow into and share with loved ones. Homes for Sale CDM
