The beach at Orange Street in Newport offers its beach- goers surfable serenity. Much like that beach, the home located only steps away at 6709 Seashore Drive is truly a peaceful retreat. Its style is meant to mimic a Hawaiian plantation house and does so with its white paneled walls and dark wood ceiling beams. Though not large in square footage, it feels wide open and dedicates much of its space to the incredible master bedroom area. Newport Beach Dream Home
The master suite living space features a wide open floor plan that ushers in light and an ocean view. White crisp walls set the inviting mood for the rest of the space. The real showstopper of the room is the master bathroom. A giant white bathtub encased in marble sits next to a spacious shower, and glossy green sea glass tiles cover an entire wall, which provides the perfect pop of color. Next to the bathroom is a high ceiling walk- in closet, which offers more than enough space for two.
Throughout the house, there are unifying textures and pieces. The relaxed and elegant island design at 6709 Seashore Drive incorporates similar elements for every space. The sea glass tile of the master suite can also be found in the beautiful backsplash of the kitchen as well as the other bathrooms and marble counters. The outside of the cream cottage-esque building is surrounded with a beautiful Hawaiian landscape. Palm trees and large pacific-rim plants climb the building, offering color, while lava rocks tastefully cover the bases of the trees. Newport Beach Dream Home
Although this house would be lovely in any location, the true appeal is its proximity to the beach. Though it does not sit on the sand, it’s just a minute walk to dive into the sea. On summer days, you can find the hot sun beating down on surfers as they take advantage of the pristine breaks. On winter days, you are a moment away from a solitary stroll on the sand, seeing only the occasional passerby.
If you have kids, or are planning to have them one day, a huge perk of living at 6709 Seashore Drive would have to be the local school and community. Your morning drop off routine would consist of a bike ride down to Newport Elementary School, which sits right on the beach. Kids or no kids, you can always pick up some breakfast from the classic Cappy’s Cafe, grab lunch at Eat Chow, visit the cool stores on PCH or kick back at the beautiful Sunset Ridge Park. Newport Beach Dream Home
At the end of the day, it’s easy to imagine sitting on the beach, running home to take a spa-worthy bath in your inviting master suite then hitting the Newport Beach nightlife. Regardless of how you plan to spend your sand-filled days, 6709 Seashore Drive is the perfect home base for those seeking sun, serenity and salt water bliss.
