Location: Newport Beach, California
An impeccably maintained midcentury modern home in Newport Beach, California, is on the market for the first time in decades. Located on Lido Isle, a tiny man-made island in the city’s harbor, the 1961 home boasts a plethora of period details that still feels fresh today.
The 2,485-square-foot residence features a mostly long, low profile, except for an asymmetrical volume—an addition perhaps?—above on one end of the structure, where an additional bedroom with a wall of picture windows reaching toward the water.
Behind a white masonry block perimeter and gate is a courtyard with terrazzo flooring. Frosted sliding glass doors form the entrance, establishing the indoor-outdoor connection from the very start. The original terrazzo floors continue into the main living space, which is open in plan and comprises a fireplaced lounge area with sliding glass doors opening onto a patio, dining area, and a kitchen with original cabinetry.
Also found on this level are a large office or den with direct access to a garden patio by way of sliders, a master suite whose sliding glass doors open onto a patio and its bathroom to another green patio, and another large suite, for a total of three bedrooms, two full baths, and one partial. Vaulted ceilings paired with clerestory windows and the afore-mentioned sliders bring drama and light into the space.
While its lot is large for the neighborhood, there isn’t much by way of a yard, but the multiple patios offer respite, privacy, and a little bit of greenery. And for other needs, Lido Isle offers exclusive community spaces like a clubhouse, parks, boat docks, and tennis court. Located on a corner lot at 211 Via Lido Nord, the property is offered at $2.94 million.
