Vibrant views of captivating sunsets, coastal waters, and swaying palms depict luxury beach living in this guard-gated Crystal Cove home, with a cul-de-sac setting providing privacy and relaxed vacation vibes. The unique pie-shaped 7,608 +/- s.f., lot fans out to a generous grassy backyard with patio, tranquil pond, and lush greenery and offers enviable views that skim the horizon, where blue ocean waters meet the rugged outline of Catalina and beyond. A foyer with expansive ceilings and a gently curved staircase sets the tone for an upscale residence, with custom stone tile floors beginning here, and continuing throughout the main living areas of this 4,058 +/- s.f. home, with 5 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms. The living room offers a warming fireplace, and a custom chandelier radiates luxe lighting in the dining room, with French doors opening both to a courtyard with salt air breezes and a soothing fountain. Stunning ocean views are framed by a picture window in the light-filled family room, and a hearth with custom tile is set under a gas fireplace and media center that provides discreet storage for built-in audio in the main living areas. A granite-topped island creates a place to lounge in the newly renovated kitchen, where updates include custom cabinets, wine cooler, Wolf 6-burner range w/grill & dual ovens, and a dining nook adjoining the courtyard.
All five bedrooms offer deeply hued wood floors and feature ensuite bathrooms; two bedrooms are found on the main floor, giving the flexibility to use one as a home office or gym, and two junior suites and a primary bedroom are on the upper floor. The spacious primary suite has the feeling of an upscale boutique hotel, with a quintessentially charming covered deck offering white water views that extend to Palos Verdes; evoking tranquil images of far-flung locales and endless summer days. A soaking tub, dual vanities, makeup vanity, and a walk-in closet are found in the sun-drenched ensuite bath. An upper floor bonus area offers an additional place to unwind, and potential for a billiards room, screening room, library, or conversion to a 6th bedroom with a full bath. Crystal Cove’s unique location and fantastic amenities include 24-hour guard-gated entry, Canyon Club with pool, spa, fitness, playground, sports courts & scheduled activities, walking distance to Crystal Cove Promenade and private walking access to pristine state beach & park and historic district, with a quick drive to Newport & Laguna’s world-class shopping and dining options at Fashion Island and Laguna Beach village.
