About 1933 Bayside Drive
Dazzling views look out past a sprawling greenbelt, skim over a sun-kissed white sand beach, and open to calm bay waters dotted with boats in this exquisite Corona del Mar home, where a prime bayfront location near the channel entrance offers unparalleled access to the Pacific Ocean. Meticulously constructed, this 4,938 s.f. +/- home features 4 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, and expansive living spaces, with a long driveway and 3-car garage creating a rare abundance of parking. An interior courtyard has a charming, finished gardening/hobby room that offers the potential for a bonus entertaining space; this sunny outdoor area links to both an office with handcrafted built-ins, and a grand entry. An open great room has captivating water views and timeless quality, with travertine floors, coffered ceilings, a stone-lined fireplace, and French doors that open to soft ocean breezes. The kitchen is airy & bright, with a dining nook that looks out on the vibrant waterfront, and luxury upgrades that include an island with quartzite counters & copper prep sink, a top-line 4-burner range w/oversized grill & double ovens, and a paneled refrigerator. Two main floor bedrooms have ensuite baths and fantastic custom closets, with one bedroom opening to the courtyard. The main floor is completed by a fitness room (that can be a 4th bedroom), laundry room, and a guest bathroom with whimsical custom tile. Upstairs spaces can be accessed by stairs or an elevator. No expense was spared in creating a lavish library, where walls and ceilings are swathed in rich wood panels, a fireplace is trimmed in black marble, and a row of arched French doors opens to a bay-facing balcony with views that stretch out to the open ocean. The adjoining primary suite features a private balcony that looks out at the sparkling bay, with dual closets offering luxe built-ins, and dual bathrooms boasting exotic jewel-toned stone surfaces, a soaking tub & brass fixtures. The 7,980 s.f. +/- lot has curated gardens, and a sun-drenched terrace where waves lapping at the shore are a gentle reminder to step out onto the pristine beach, or glide across the water on a kayak or paddleboard to capture precious moments of fun in the sun. Additional upgrades include whole-house audio, fire sprinklers, slate roof, and copper rain gutters. Luxury beach amenities are walkable or nearby, with beach volleyball, tide pools, boat & yacht clubs, Balboa Island, and world-class shopping & dining at CDM Village & Fashion Island.
