IRVINE, Calif. (March 3, 2019) Jacqueline Thompson sells a breathtaking custom estate located at 19 Needle Grass in Irvine’s Shady Canyon® for $10,275,000. Thompson represented both the buyer and seller in an all-cash transaction for an executive client who owns residences along the coast of Orange County as well as in Shady Canyon.
Near the end of one of Shady Canyon's most quiet and private streets, 19 Needle Grass graces an approximately three-quarter-acre lot and melds the romance of timeless European style with modern luxuries. Here, views of scenic hills, canyons, sparkling city lights, and the blue Pacific Ocean impress all who enter. Stately centuries-old Spanish olive trees flank the front gate of this enchanting estate that spans more than 10,190 square feet; spacious yet intimate, the home is designed for casually elegant living and entertaining.
Flowing effortlessly from one to the next, the estate's large, airy rooms feature massive windows and glass doors that frame lovely views of the beautiful grounds and ocean beyond. A skylight in the foyer gallery lets light in from all angles and is truly stunning. Among the five bedrooms and eight bathrooms is a serene master wing with spectacular views, spa bathing suite, expansive dressing room, and private terrace, as well as four secondary bedrooms, all with en-suite bathrooms. On the main level, the kitchen suite comprises a large chef's kitchen and full secondary kitchen. On the upper level, a lovely tower suite with a loft is ideal as a studio for art, yoga, meditation, or study. The estate's grounds highlight verdant gardens, including citrus and fruit trees, roses, and mature hedges and trees for privacy.
Since she launched the Jacqueline Thompson Group at Surterre Properties® in 2008, Jacqueline Thompson has made sales history – and forged one of the most successful luxury residential real estate practices – in Orange County. In fact, over the past twelve years, Thompson has sold over $1 billion in luxury properties in the exclusive enclaves of Shady Canyon and Newport Coast (including Crystal Cove and The Pelicans), as well as in Newport Beach and Laguna Beach.
Jacqueline is especially acclaimed for her expertise and market leadership in Shady Canyon, where she has been the number one agent in sales volume for the past decade. She has transacted over $600 million since 2008 in the exclusive enclave and – independent of market conditions – has continued to drive values.
