521 Kings Road, Newport Beach, CA 92633
Some of the finest views in Newport Beach belong to prime properties along Kings Road – stunning harbor and coastline overlooks that are magnificent and ever-changing. Only a handful of these properties have the perfect postcard view – including the harbor turning basin, historic Balboa Pavilion, and all the harbor islands. Available for the first time in more than 30 years, 521 Kings Road occupies one of these enviable front row locations. Marvelously livable and prominently sited on the parcel, the residence provides trophy views from almost all rooms across two graciously-sized levels. Behind a rough-hewn vintage wooden entrance gate, a private courtyard is a welcoming space and allows an initial peak of the harbor and ocean views to come. The main level holds all of the primary living space without any steps – an abundance of French doors open to the water views from the living room, dining room, and primary suite along with a deck that runs the full width of the home. The kitchen shares in the harbor views, providing a generously sized culinary space with a charming ‘eat in’ corner with wonderful views on one side and a crackling fireplace on the other. A large secondary bedroom – perfect as a bedroom, office, or media den – finishes the upper level and includes a peaceful view to the entrance courtyard through French doors. The lower level includes a large bonus room with wet bar and a library wall anchored by a fireplace (one of five fireplaces in the home), with walk-out access to the lower view terrace and pool. Two additional large en-suite bedrooms and an oversized laundry room complete the lower level. The terraced pool and gardens are a treasure – artisan brickwork around the pool combines with perfectly curated horticulture to create an outdoor vibe that draws you in and invites you to stick around for a bit. Glowing wide plank wood floors, vintage European fireplace surrounds, antique carved and reclaimed wood doors, custom millwork, and recent updates to kitchen and baths add to the special feel of this special residence. As many come to learn about locations and views in this prized neighborhood, the nuances make the difference. 521 Kings Road is a rare opportunity to obtain one of these few exceptional properties – and just in time to have a prime seat for the famed Newport Beach Holiday Parade from the comfort of your own home!
