Just seven houses from the sand and walking distance to the Newport Beach Pier and Lido Marina Village, this one-of-a-kind beach cottage on Balboa Peninsula is an absolute gem. With the help of famed interior designer Peter Dunham, almost $450K was spent on the renovation of this original 1915 build. The charm starts immediately at the covered front porch, where you can enjoy an afternoon drink and watch the beach lovers pass by. Upon entry through the front dutch-door, tongue-and-groove white paneled ceilings compliment reclaimed, relic Douglas Fir flooring brought up from the depths of Utah's Great Salt Lake. Antique marine light fixtures accent the built-in banquette seating in the dining area which sits across from the open living room and guest quarters with a built-in day bed and ample storage space. The galley-style kitchen is outfitted with cabinet-front Sub Zero refrigerator, Fisher & Paykel dishwasher, and Aga range from the UK. For optimal privacy, the master bedroom is situated near the rear of the home and features custom built-ins throughout. The designer bathroom features Calcutta Gold marble countertops and a walk-in shower with sea-glass floors. Conveniently there is a one-car garage (with washer and dryer hook-ups) and an additional parking space behind. Completed with all of today’s modern amenities, including updated plumbing, central heating, and luxury appliances, this charming Newport Beach preservation project pays homage to those simpler, summer days.
