A five-story, oceanfront Corona del Mar house designed by architect Brion Jeannette and boasting private stairs to the beach is for sale at $26.9 million.
Set beyond a gated, stone-paved motor court, the five-bedroom home includes a spa, secluded beachside cabana and views of waves crashing against rocks from terraces on every level and most rooms.
Built in 2001, the house at 3619 Ocean Boulevard has formal living and dining rooms, a gourmet kitchen and two master suites. The 7,168-square foot residence is equipped with an elevator, bar, library, fitness room, and 250-bottle wine cellar.
Floor-to-ceiling windows, hardwood floors, arched doorways and beamed ceilings are among the interior designs.
Jeannette is known for creating a variety of high-profile, south Orange County trophy homes, including the 30,000-square-foot Portabello mansion in Corona del Mar, once featured on “Oprah,” and the Rock House – a contemporary home built into a boulder on the sand – in Laguna Beach.
One of Jeannette’s signature design elements is “daylighting” the subterranean levels of homes built below street level by opening them to the outdoors.
