Capturing views from every room with plenty of softened natural light and cooled by coastal breezes, this beautiful estate in the community of Corona del Mar, Newport Beach, Ca. , was designed to create a private world that turns away from the public world and secrets a paradise within. It was designed with a gentle sloping roof colored to match the sand and blend into the coastal environment. It is only one story high from the street, with a subterranean lower level and day lighting at the pool grotto. The lower level houses a garage/workshop/auto museum, theater, bowling alley, and other recreational spaces. This 30,000 sq. ft. home is equipped with state-of-the-art technology and employs a variety of passive solar strategies to make it comfortable year round . . . with no need to leave. City, HOA and Coastal Commission approvals were secured.
