Set on a hillside in Crystal Cove’s Seascape neighborhood, this residence represents the best of luxury beach living. An unparalleled location so close to the Pacific Ocean that you can see waves cresting before crashing onto the white sand beaches, just a short walk beyond the private gates of Crystal Cove. The best of Crystal Cove includes fine dining, casual eateries & eclectic boutiques at the Promenade, charming historic beach cottages & the iconic Beachcomber, and the white sand beaches that are all within a short stroll. One of only a handful of 86 villas that’s completely detached and freestanding, this residence is perched on a coveted elevated corner lot, offering exquisite privacy and phenomenal white water and Catalina views. A well-designed floor plan creates a real connection to the natural landscape, with ocean views found in almost every room of a villa that spans 2,849 square feet, with four bedrooms and four bathrooms. A large sun terrace enclosed by glass panels is a place to entertain while watching the sun dip below the horizon, this space seamlessly links with two bright & airy living spaces; a living room with a wall of ocean-facing windows and a fireplace, and a dining room with elevated ceilings and polished stone floors. The kitchen features an archway that frames an ever-changing view of blue waters, and offers an 8-burner Viking range with griddle & dual ovens, a SubZero refrigerator, and a quiet breakfast room with built-in cabinets and tray ceilings. The main floor is completed by a powder room, and a bedroom suite that offers the potential for a private guest space or an office away from the rest of the house. On the upper level, a primary suite boasts a balcony with French doors that offer panoramic views that stretch across rolling ocean swells to Palos Verdes, and an ensuite that offers separate vanities with stone countertops, a travertine tiled shower, soaking tub, and dual walk-in closets. Two additional bedrooms have plantation shutters and are linked by a shared bathroom, as well as a shared deck that’s perfect for gazing at the nighttime sky. Additional features include a paver stone driveway that accesses a two-car garage, built-in audio, and a convenient upstairs laundry room. Crystal Cove is a 24-hour guard-gated community that offers residents access to scheduled social events at the Canyon Club, as well as a Junior Olympic pool, wading pool, gym & sports courts, and is nearby to beaches, dining & shopping in Newport & Laguna.
