Inspiring Homes – California Coastal Home | Best Design Projects


Located in the exclusive Bay Shores coastal community in Newport Beach this coastal home is situated on a rare 8,000 s.f. wedge shaped lot.

Large open living spaces flow through expansive pocketing doors out to a courtyard complete with yard and built-in spa. The courtyard is located to provide maximum natural light and ventilation throughout the year. A 17’ x 6’ custom skylight over the staircase atrium highlights the grandiose scale of the interior and brings even more light into home. Great care was taken to insure that the comfortable scale of the interior spaces is maintained throughout the home. This includes wide hallways, tall vaulted ceilings and a lot of natural light. The aesthetic was derived from traditional East Coast architecture, blending natural materials such as wood siding, shingle roofing and quarried stone. Detailed millwork inside and out accentuates the highest level of craftsmanship and quality needed so close to the ocean.

This bedroom reminds of a sunny day on a sandy beach! It’s coastal without being too obvious, which is always more appealing.
