As far as golf course properties go, it’s the frontage that really counts. In the case of this rare home in Newport Beach’s prestigious guard-gated community of Big Canyon, it fronts over 180 feet of golf course for a true life above par. And that’s not all. It’s a singular home designed and built by the renowned team of Ed Lohrbach and Carl Akin set “in the best location in all of Big Canyon and features 20 acres of unobstructed golf course views,” says listing agent Georgina Jacobson.
The entry sets the stage as incredible views and westerly exposure brighten the 6,000-foot interiors. Vaulted ceilings and beautiful white oak herringbone wood floors enrich the living spaces. An inviting living room with a fireplace and a separate formal dining room leads to the gourmet kitchen with granite countertops, three Thermador ovens, a heating oven and an oversized Sub-Zero refrigerator, walk-in pantry and kitchen nook. A spacious downstairs office overlooks the 15th green and shimmeirng lake. The formal dining room, breakfast nook, kitchen, theater, and game/bonus room overlook the 8th fairway and green and the 7th tee. Glass sliders in each of these rooms lead out to the welcoming wrap-around patio, creating the perfect opportunity for indoor-outdoor entertaining. Completing the first floor: a downstairs ensuite bedroom/live-in maid room and an oversized laundry room.
Upstairs, the expansive views continue with the primary bedroom, which boasts access to a private outdoor patio, a spa-like bathroom and walk-in closet with built-ins. There are three additional bedrooms comprising the second level, all with ensuite bathrooms. Impeccable attention to detail makes for an effortless living environment, between the security systems, automatic shades, custom art lighting throughout, a built-in sound system, and a craftsman-designed 3-car garage with full built-ins. Perfect for the golf aficionado looking for a place to remake as their own.
