1231 Dolphin, Corona del Mar, CA 92625

Offering front-row vistas of Newport Harbor, Balboa Island, the Pacific Ocean and Catalina Island, this unparalleled custom residence in the sought-after Newport Beach enclave of Irvine Terrace delivers the ultimate in contemporary luxury. Located on a lofty bluff above Bayside Drive, the inspiring design reflects the talents of architect Carlton Graham and builders Steve Davidson Construction and Tom Waters. Natural elements reflecting the home’s natural surroundings are imperceptibly incorporated throughout the two-level floorplan, which offers four en suite bedrooms and five-and-two-half-baths in approximately 6,232 square feet. The residence slowly introduces itself, as if to build suspense before revealing its phenomenal views. A gated entry courtyard offers privacy from the street and leads to a pivoting glass entry door. From there, panoramic vistas come to life with passing yachts, sunsets of pure magic, and evening lights that dance across the water below. The main level is open and bright, with walls of floor-to-ceiling windows and fold-away glass doors framing views and welcoming natural light. Discover a great room with fireplace and dining area, an island kitchen with premium appliances, white oak ceilings, and limestone floors and wall accents. The lux primary suite is located on this level, opening to a heated view deck that spans the width of the home and includes a built-in BBQ bar. Downstairs, a fabulous lounge and media room with full wet bar joins an office with glass doors and a wine cellar with full-size beverage refrigerator. Accordion doors lead to a terrace that boasts an infinity-edge pool, raised spa and an outdoor kitchen with pro grill. Irvine Terrace is moments from Fashion Island’s shopping and dining attractions, the Newport Beach Country Club and the Newport Harbor Yacht Club.
