This is a rare opportunity to own a piece of OC history in the coveted guard-gated community of Bayshores. The cottage inspired design invites you into this tastefully upgraded, two story, 3,316 square foot, four bedroom, four bath residence. The open floor plan flows seamlessly from the front entrance into the living, dining, and kitchen areas, equipped with beautiful hardwood floors, wainscoting, honed marble counter tops, custom cabinets, stainless steel appliances, and a "walk-in" wine closet. Adjacent to the main-floor living areas are located the secondary bedrooms and bathrooms. The dramatic spiraling staircase leads you to the spacious second story entertainment "loft" and master bedroom and bathroom areas. You can also enjoy the outdoor living areas in the large downstairs covered patio or the upstairs sun deck. This quintessential "Old Newport" location is just a short walk or drive to many neighborhood amenities, such as Fashion Island, Balboa Bay Club, Newport Peninsula, South Coast Plaza and Performing Arts Center.
