An hour south of Los Angeles, the hustle and bustle of a vibrant city give way to the serene, laid-back atmosphere of Newport Harbor. It’s here in the cozy seaside enclave of Corona del Mar that you’ll discover the elegance and perfection of 301 Carnation Avenue
Presented by VALIA Properties, this four-bedroom, 4 1/2-bath, 5,000-square-foot stunner sits perched along a bluff overlooking Newport Bay, Balboa Peninsula, and, just beyond, the Pacific Ocean.
Located on a private, no-outlet street, 301 Carnation evokes the classic beach home. Clean and sophisticated architectural lines hint at the attention to detail you’ll find inside.
Upon entry, the home does not disappoint. The foyer offers a warm welcome, with fine ironwork adorning a graceful spiral staircase. The centerpiece skylight is the first of many exquisite touches in this oceanside paradise.
Down the main hallway, the breathtaking harbor and ocean views come into focus, a living work of art literally framed by a sweeping pocket glass wall. The open concept living-dining-kitchen area provides many comfy angles from which to absorb the stunning scenery.
Beyond the threshold of the glass wall, genuine indoor-outdoor living awaits. An accommodating and roomy deck boasts a pool, a spa, and plenty of room to mix, mingle, and dine with guests.
For those with a talent for cooking, your home within a home is a well-appointed kitchen. Countertops are of Calacatta marble, and a large island with seating for five anchors the natural gathering place. The real center of attention is the La Cornue Le Chateau range, an appliance that is equal parts a beauty to admire and a joy to use.
A step or two away is the dining area, which can comfortably fit a table for ten. Dining guests cannot help but be amazed by the eye-popping Pantheon chandelier. Completing the space is the intimate living room where you’ll enjoy a gorgeous sunset.
Upstairs, 301 Carnation further delights. The master suite is a fitting oasis for such a masterful home. A pocket glass wall leads to a private balcony, and the suite’s oversized fireplace and immaculate detailing share the same level of tasteful style as the world’s most exclusive seaside resorts.
The expansive his-and-her bathrooms continue the theme of a luxurious retreat with boundless views, a Cheviot soaking tub, and steam showers. Adding to the allure is closet space best described as one’s own personal boutique.
Even with its lavish touches, 301 Carnation is very much a home to live in. Three additional bedroom suites and a bonus area provide family and guests an opportunity to discover a space of their own.
Completing the floor plan is an office with extensive built-ins and a paneled-wall theater room, much like the splendid movie houses of the early 20th century. A perfectly balanced live-work-play home awaits the fortunate owner of 301 Carnation Avenue.
