This is The One. Every inch of this home has been upgraded and completely remastered with designer finishes and modern amenities including LED lighting throughout, new light fixtures, large plank wood floors by Warren Christopher, and smart home technology; while graciously honoring its Plantation design with wide verandas, expansive rooms, and multiple fireplaces creating an environment of Southern hospitality. The kitchen with stainless steel Viking appliances, massive marble island and zellige tile is open to the oversized great room with gorgeous high ceilings and walls of French doors providing uninterrupted sightlines and an easy integration with the outdoors. Private and lush back and front yards provide plenty of space for entertaining or relaxing and reading a book in the shade. 5 bedrooms, a billiards room complete with custom wetbar, 4 bathrooms, and no detail or expense spared. Walk to Newport Beach’s highly rated Mariner’s Elementary School, park and library, an easy bike ride to one of California’s beaches, and minutes to the great shops and a foodie’s paradise of restaurants and cafes on 17th Street. This is the dream home to have on one of the most beloved blocks in the neighborhood.
