Corona del Mar. Images of panoramic views of the majestic Orange County coastline and beyond, sailboats and mega yachts gliding through the harbor, and watercolor skies that meet turquoise waters immediately come to mind. Affectionately called CDM by locals, this seaside paradise certainly lives up to its name, “Crown of the Sea.” A quaint enclave of Newport Beach, it’s a place where laid-back luxury meets coastal chic and the active beach lifestyle reigns above all others. Restaurants, boutiques, and hip music spots, all are within walking distance and humble beach cottages sit alongside new homes on picturesque flower-named streets.
Residing just a block away from the iconic cliffs of Ocean Boulevard that overlook Big Corona beach, rests 215 Marigold. Boasting the distinctive steep roof and wood shingle siding, the Cape Cod-style home sits on a double lot with approximately 60 feet of frontage. A white picket fence and manicured box hedges line the ocean-view front patio with a cozy seating area centered on the fireplace. A custom French Dutch door opens to reveal an approximately 5,954 sq. ft. residence with 5 bedrooms, 6.5 baths plus gentleman’s office, subterranean bonus room, and detached guest suite/gym/or nanny’s quarters.
Prime for a summer clambake, the gourmet kitchen is equipped with a large center island with barstool seating, dining nook, Carrera marble countertops, Vaughn lighting fixtures, Viking range, and SubZero® refrigerator. A Dutch door opens to the interior courtyard with oversized spa and fountain feature, built-in barbecue, and grassy area. Adjacent to the kitchen, a formal dining room with temperature controlled, 300-bottle wine room awaits.
Moving upstairs, the master suite is a flawless retreat featuring a sumptuous ensuite bath adorned in Carrera marble with dual vanities, soaking tub, and mosaic accents. A private ocean-view deck offers a secluded getaway to soak in the sunshine and sea breezes. The home’s rooftop deck offers an additional outdoor space with impressive sweeping views of harbor, Catalina Island, and Palos Verdes.
Just a short stroll to the beach and Corona del Mar village, this coastal inspired masterpiece can be your personal seaside playground.
