415 Avocado Ave | Sold for $20 Million

This sprawling 1.2 acre view bluff-front estate overlooks Newport Harbor, the ocean and sunsets. It is uniquely situated between the Village and Irvine Terrace. The property is two legal lots with one residence currently on both. Developers note: with the removal of the house, both parcels can be developed independently per the city of Newport Beach (no subdivision required). The elevated site sits well above its neighbors adding to its privacy, light and views. Each parcel will easily accommodate a new home larger than 15,000 SF and this property is NOT subject to the single-story height limitation of Irvine Terrace. The location is also convenient to the village of Corona del Mar, Newport Center, Balboa Island, and is only minutes from John Wayne Airport. For those in search of a perfect ocean-close estate, this is Orange County’s finest.


401 Avocado Ave | Sold for $35 Million

Steeped in history, the landmark “Blue House” surveys all of the activity in the world’s most picturesque pleasure harbor. In the 1930’s, this specific parcel was culled from the extensive holdings of the area’s largest ranch to become the site of a family home overlooking the newly christened harbor. A 200’ private drive leads to the motor court. The main house sits at the peak elevation and is complemented by a guest building, service quarters, an indoor pool, and a regulation lighted tennis court. Built as an homage to the grand winter retreats of Bermuda, the modest residence is graceful and undisturbed. Surrounded by broad lawns and expansive gardens, the property exudes an enduring ambiance of relaxed privacy as was originally created here decades ago.
