Architect Carlton Graham does not have a particular style, but his work — dotting the prestigious coastline throughout California’s Orange County — has been called “warm modern.” A feeling of serenity and timelessness echo throughout most of his dwellings, which are often punctuated by large windows, sliding doors and courtyards framing views. This stunning architectural residence, set in the gated community of Newport Beach’s Linda Isle and recently listed for $24,995,000 by Tim Smith of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage in Newport Beach, is no exception.
“There is an astonishing blend of elegance and impeccable craftsmanship in this masterpiece of a home,” Smith tells us. The four-bedroom, four-and-a-half-bathroom residence capitalizes on its placement right along the water by seamlessly blending indoor and outdoor living, with each room opening to breathtaking views of the harbor and city lights. Using only the highest quality construction materials, the estate was built with the finest attention to each detail by Gallo Builders, a Laguna Beach-based custom home builder that has frequently graced the pages of publications like Luxe and Riviera. Spanning nearly 7,000 square feet of living space with 113 feet of water frontage featuring views toward the turning basin, the residence “offers an extremely functional floor plan with large, open living spaces at the center of each floor for communal gatherings,” says Smith.
Floor to ceiling windows and beefy bifold doors throughout provide for an abundance of natural light and salty sea breezes, contributing to a luxe, coastal ambiance.
“The home is as smart as it is stylish,” reveals Smith, “completely wired and controlled via iPad with smart home technology and 5.1 surround sound systems, Vantage lighting system and integrated security systems.”
The home seamlessly merges classic architectural elements with contemporary style and design, resulting in a truly breathtaking experience. Attention to detail is apparent at every turn, with highlights including French limestone and custom rift oak flooring, gris pulpis and Travertine marble countertops, walls of Portuguese limestone, black Mexican pebble landscaping accents, all of which blend beautifully and complement the lifestyle afforded by its stunning location.
Outdoor living spaces are plentiful and include a private, enclosed courtyard at the front of the residence complete with sparkling spa and swimming pool with a bridge walkway, an oversized terrace spanning the entire width of the property and overlooking the harbor, with access to a private gangway and boat dock, able to accommodate an approximately 60-foot vessel. Beyond the residence itself, the community of Linda Isle offers amenities including private sports courts, a spacious club house, 24-hour guard gated security, private playground and sandy beach.
Three secondary en suite bedrooms are gracious in size and benefit from balcony access, while the master suite is the ultimate in relaxation and luxury, boasting panoramic views of the harbor from the glass-enclosed patio, a gas fireplace and sitting area, and sumptuous bathroom with soaking tub, separate rain and steam shower, dual vanities and a coveted walk-in closet with center island.
With all of its scale and grandeur, this special residence remains warm and inviting, making it a unique retreat for intimate family life, yet poised for large-scale entertaining.
“We strive to create buildings that remain timeless, have a positive effect on people’s lives and offer a comfortable place to live,” Graham has said about his firm’s central focus. After a tour of this breathtaking property, there is little doubt that your sense of well-being will be magnified.
