NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. (December 6, 2019) This is a true legacy property encompassing two residences with a combined living space of over 19,000 square feet on 31,672 of exceptionally private ocean view land. An all-star cast of design and construction talents converged to create this luxurious estate, including residential architects Brett Coombs and Jerry Walcher, David Ko for exterior and historical architectural detailing, builder Andrew Miner, and master theater designer Theo Kalomirakis for thematic architecture and the property’s two director-quality theaters.
Together, these renowned experts have brought to life a once-in-a-lifetime estate that beautifully blends classic Italian architecture with stylish California coastal elements, luxurious indoor rooms with glorious gardens and quiet spaces for reflection with incredible amenities for large-scale entertaining.
A scenic stretch of Pacific Coast Highway leads you to the impressive gates of Pelican Point, where, on a coveted corner lot on a quiet cul-de-sac lane, you’ll find 6 Shoreview. A formal circular drive lined by stately cypress trees welcomes you, leading you to the front gate and into the romantic gardens that surround the estate. Along the path, enjoy lovely views of both homes, as well as the ocean and grounds.
Spanning three levels and 11,800 square feet including a 3,400 square foot garage, the estate’s recently remodeled North House is an elegant example of Neoclassic architecture designed to capture ocean and garden views and an abundance of natural light.
The double-height entry foyer leads to the formal living and dining rooms - both of which are large in scale and feature high ceilings, yet feel intimate and inviting. An executive office/library with wet bar and a jewel box powder room are situated nearby. Another highlight of the main level is the great room suite that opens to the rear grounds and includes a spacious family room with a fireplace and full bar, a breakfast room, and a large, open-format kitchen with a full complement of chef-grade appliances and butler’s pantry.
The North House offers a total of 6 bedrooms and 8 1/2 baths, with two gracious guest suites on the main level that offer ensuite baths and large closets. The upper level is designed with four bedrooms with ensuite baths, including the fabulous master suite with an expansive terrace, ocean views, sitting area with fireplace, wet bar, dressing room, cedar-lined winter closet, and stunning bath suite with ocean-view bathtub, rain shower, and fireplace.
The North House’s lower level provides the setting for a spectacular Theo Kalomirakis theater, full bar, and billiards lounge, designed by Kalomirakis and featuring art-quality finishes by the Mueller-Turner Enterprises. Also on this lower level are a fitness room, a full bath and subterranean parking for 6 cars. The North House is equipped with a dumbwaiter and elevator servicing all floors, as well as upper level and main level laundry rooms, and Smart Home technology to control climate, lighting and sound systems.
Built in 2013, the South House is the newer of the two homes and complements the Neoclassic style of the North House with its distinctive Italianate architecture and designer interiors by Thurston Boyd. The renowned architect David Ko from Angeleno Associates brought Renaissance influences and artisan flourishes to the South House and to the gardens that connect the two homes to ensure continuity and beauty at every turn.
The South House is centered around a stunning courtyard inspired by Michelangelo’s iconic Piazza del Campidoglio, where Ko collaborated with Theo Kalomirakis on thematic architecture which includes a large marble fountain, custom balustrades, intricate masonry courtyard, and show-stopping theater marquee.
Custom, Luxury Theater
Designed for memorable entertaining, the lower level of the South House features a breathtaking Theo Kalomirakis theater with a large-scale lobby with a full bar and soda fountain. The theater itself is a feat of artistry, design, and engineering, with digitally enhanced acoustics via the Concertino sound system similar to those found in major performance halls, to allow for stunning live musical performances. The commercial-quality theater also includes a stage, motorized curtains, artisan-designed.
This theater won CEDIA’s coveted Best Overall Home Theater as well as the Gold Technical Design award for theaters costing one million dollars or more. The South House’s lower level also provides the setting for an Italian bistro with a Neapolitan pizza oven, a nightclub with video projection (walls and floors) and stage with motorized riser and concert-grade soundboards, lighting and fog machine. Also on this floor is a massive lounge area (currently used as a video game and pinball arcade), four powder rooms and an additional full bar.
The main level of the South House is the heart of the residence and features a true cook’s kitchen fitted with chef-grade appliances, a huge center island, a breakfast room, and a butler’s pantry. Formal living and dining rooms with an inviting fireplace and bar open completely to a sheltered terrace and the grounds for indoor/outdoor living and entertaining. The residence’s main level also comprises an office/library looking onto a private courtyard with water feature, two powder rooms, and a guest suite with full bath.
South House’s upper floor spans a spacious craft room/art studio with extensive built-in cabinetry and office workstations, study area, bonus room or teen retreat with adjoining terrace, a powder room, and a laundry room. Completing this level is a master suite with a beautiful ocean view, sitting area, and fireplace, as well as a spa bathroom with jetted tub and massive rain and steam shower. The master suite also has a private terrace that connects to the North House along a walkway.
In total, the South House features 2 bedrooms and 5 1/2 bathrooms amid 11,000 square feet and three levels, all served by an elevator and Smart Home technology to control climate, security, lighting and sound systems.
The grounds of 4 Shoreview are an exquisite and inviting sanctuary for relaxing and entertaining. Designed to connect the two residences seamlessly, the gardens feature ocean views, a sparkling pool, and spa, water features, bronze sculpture, lush landscaping, rose and herb gardens, mature olive trees, and sun-drenched terraces. Other highlights of the grounds include a tree-shaded al fresco dining area, full outdoor kitchen and bar, gas side burner, warming drawers, electric smoker, and a full pool bathroom. Perhaps best of all, these serene surroundings offer stone’s-throw proximity to Crystal Cove State Beach Park, Pelican Hill Resort + Golf Course, the charming village of Corona del Mar and all that Newport and Laguna Beach have to offer.
