We are delighted to present this beautiful four-bedroom home at 53 Sea Terrace, located in the renowned Newport Coast neighbourhood of Newport Beach.
The house has been fully remodelled and refurbished, featuring brand new wood finishes, designer carpets and large glass panels that appear opaque when viewed from the outside to ensure complete privacy for the homeowners and to prevent sun damage to the furniture. The exterior façade of the house has a Mediterranean character to it, with tiled gable roofs and elements of exposed brickwork, all in warm neutral tones. Adding to the element of privacy, it is partially hidden from view by a cluster of palm trees that frames the front lawn. The newly installed wooden double doors stand 8 feet high and have glass panels embedded in them. They are set in a recessed entryway and are bordered by windows and a transom to allow plenty of light into the home as you walk in to the 3,100 sq ft home.
A reception area opens out to a spacious double-height living room on your right featuring a lovely brick fireplace, with large windows along one wall that overlook the front lawn. There also windows set along the top of the ceiling, adding to the light and airy feel of the room. The living room connects to a connecting to a formal dining room in one corner that can seat 8-12 people and is topped by a gorgeous chandelier, which leads into an eat-in kitchen fitted with high-end Viking appliances, quartz countertops, a Carrera marble island and a stainless steel farmer’s sink. Adjoining the kitchen is a family room with a second fireplace, a wetbar, a wine refrigerator and storage space for music equipment. The floor also contains a guest bedroom, bathroom and laundry room.
A staircase divides the living from the family room/kitchen and is accessible from both areas. It is finished with designer wainscoting in a high gloss white finish contrasted by dark trim. Every part of the staircase is completely new, including the treads, risers and spindles.
More storage space can be found on the upstairs landing, which branches out to three further bedrooms and a home office. The office features built-in desks and a beautiful built-in bookcase. Two of the bedrooms have a Jack and Jill setup with separate sinks and a shared bath. The master suite is incredibly elegant and spacious, opening out to a private balcony that looks onto the backyard. Perhaps the most distinctive part of the top floor is the master bathroom, which features his and hers sinks, a walk-in shower with a marvellous quartz finish and high-end fittings, a stand-alone tub and newly installed cabinetry. The flooring is designer marble, adding a final luxurious touch.
Beautiful timber flooring is found throughout the home, with glossy parquet flooring in the office. All of the doors are Shaker-style with designer black hinges and doorknobs. White walls encase elegantly rooms with contemporary furniture and muted colors in an earthy palette. Large windows are placed around all of the exterior walls to flood the house in natural light. Smart home technology has been installed, including the Nest temperature control system, Alexa cubes and a Ring video doorbell. The exterior areas include the lawn, an attached 3-car garage and a backyard that has space for a swimming pool to be installed.
