4 Shoreline, Newport Coast, CA 92657
Beautifully sited with a panoramic view vista of the Pacific Ocean across the unspoiled natural reserve of Crystal Cove, the home at 4 Shoreline epitomizes the ideal southern California coastal lifestyle. The location is prime – behind the guarded gates of the small oceanfront enclave of Pelican Point (the ONLY oceanside community in tony Newport Coast), residents share exclusive access to the paths of Crystal Cove, a private cove lookout, and it’s just a short distance to both the shops and restaurants of Crystal Cove AND Corona del Mar… ideal! The residence is a study in understated, comfortable elegance. Behind the gated motor court, towering arched metal-framed doors welcome you to the gallery entrance. From the front door, your eye is drawn through the gallery to a second arched door that opens through to the vast view – an incredible first impression. The layout is right-sized and perfectly proportioned – three bedroom suites (including the generous owner’s suite) fill the upper level, and a main level bedroom (used as a media den currently), a library office, and the living spaces fill out the first level. Volumes are grand, but the spaces are appropriately intimate. Though the spectacular views are present in all of the main living spaces, the view from the owner’s suite is jaw-dropping. Completed with two cedar-lined walk-in closets, steam shower and spa tub, fireplace and walk-out view terrace, the owner’s suite sets a standard. Rarely does a property with this view, location, and quality come to market. 4 Shoreline hits the mark.
