Boasting incomparable glamour and coastal appeal, Orange County has been home to the rich and famous for decades. Yet, somehow our interest is still spiked when a celebrity home comes on the market, especially when it has ties to both professional sports and Bravo TV. Retired Major League Baseball player turned Fox Sports broadcaster Jim Edmonds and his “Real O.C. Housewife,” Meghan King Edmonds, are parting with their Tuscan-style home in Newport Beach Heights.
The power couple has completely remodeled the 5 bedroom, 5.5 bathroom residence creating an uber-cool retreat right in the heart of Orange County. A playful mix of subdued hues intersects modern accessories crafting the perfect fusion of chic industrial design and contemporary living.
The chef’s kitchen—the set of Megan’s gal pal demolition party on a recent episode of “RHOC” prior to the remodel—showcases a U-shaped island with built-in booth-style and bar dining, contrast cabinetry, and Quartz countertops. White subway tile backsplash, designer lighting, floating shelves, wine fridge, and high-end stainless steel appliances complete the superb space.
Adjoined to the kitchen, the great room enjoys voluminous ceilings, dark wood floors, and French doors that open to the hedged patio and sitting area. A formal living room and dining with sparkling chandelier highlight the posh interiors.
Upstairs, the master suite is a luxurious hideaway with a spacious walk-in closet and cozy fireplace. A sliding reclaimed barn door opens to reveal a gracious master bathroom with claw-foot tub, dual vanities, and oversized marble shower.
With a custom design and ultra-chic finishes, The Edmonds’ O.C. pad is the REAL deal.
