9 Avalon Vista, Newport Coast
In a land of superlatives, this six bedroom, ten bath Tuscan-inspired mansion is a stand-out. Notably sited on one of Pelican Crest’s most prestigious front-row lots at approximately 27,900 square feet, with unparalleled views of the Pacific, Catalina, city lights, the Harbor and the coastline stretching out before you, the approximately 13,600 square foot residence is a study in the fine art of architecture, design and homebuilding. Thanks to the illustrious team of architect, David Pierce Hohmann, construction by Gary Helds of Century Builders, Nila Trider of Newport Interiors and Design Studio – the expansive residence feels like “home,” with an ideal family floor plan…and every luxury imaginable. From the moment you stroll through the lovely formal Italianate entry gardens and into this gracious home, an unerring eye for detail and the highest standards of artisan craftsmanship are evident. Exotic stones have been hand-selected and meticulously applied. Mastercrafted millwork with furniture finishes ranges from paneling to wainscoting, from moldings to extensive built-in cabinetry. State-of-the-art appliances star not only in the chef’s kitchen and secondary catering kitchen – but make appearances outside in the hotel-quality pool pavilion. Designed on three levels, the house is eminently livable, with four bedroom suites upstairs – all featuring sumptuous ensuite baths and private terraces. The main level and the lower level comprise an entertainer’s paradise, with generously-scaled rooms flowing easily from one to the next, including a gourmet kitchen/breakfast room/family room suite, dramatic barrel-arched dining room with butler’s pantry, two wine rooms, state-of-the-art theater and more. Outside, the opportunities for elegant living and entertaining continue to abound, with a spectacular, infinity edge pool and spa that seems to float above the canyon below, as well as the outdoor fireplace, inviting fire pit and the astounding pool pavilion with full outdoor bar, kitchen and media center. Other noteworthy highlights of this magnificent custom estate include: an opulent master suite with sit-down views, a large private terrace and a decadent spa bath suite; formal library/study; fitness center; subterranean parking for six-plus cars; and advanced security, lighting, sound, and central vacuum systems.
