This charming vacation home is so unique combining the look and feel of a cozy seaside cottage at the front of the house with an expanded 3,400 sq. ft. of modern conveniences and upgrades, while keeping that warm cottage feel. There are 4 fireplaces throughout the house, hardwood floors, vaulted wood-beam high ceilings, and beautiful crown molding and finishes.
All four bedrooms are very spacious and the master bedroom closet could easily be another bedroom. If you need to work throughout your stay there is also a separate office with a nice desk, bookshelves, and fax/copy machine.
If you are truly looking for places in the home to relax and re-charge the batteries you may want to start on the front patio / lanai with gorgeous views of Corona del Mar Beach and the Pacific Ocean. This home is located 4 houses from the corner of Iris and Ocean Blvd. where you can feel the sea breezes throughout the day and capture one of the most spectacular vistas in all of Southern California. There is also a courtyard through the French doors of the den / entertainment room that features a therapeutic spa / hot tub for your enjoyment. Off the master bedroom suite there is a private balcony with lounge chairs where you can do some sun bathing or have some quiet time to read your favorite novel. Finally, between the master bedroom and one of the guest rooms there is a beautiful sun room where you can sit back and relax with a glass of wine.
As you enter this quaint yet spacious cottage you are greeted by 25' vaulted ceilings, hardwood floors, a fireplace, a baby grand piano, comfortable living room furnishings, and a country cottage feel accented by padded linen wallpaper. Although homes in Corona del Mar near the beach rarely need this, there is air conditioning available to use as needed. Most homes in CdM don't even have A/C. We also have a strong WiFi internet signal available throughout the house as well as several wide-screen TV's. Linens and towels are also included.
Dining Room / Courtyard
The formal dining room is adjacent to the living room and kitchen and seats up to 8 people. There are French doors that lead out to the courtyard and built-in gas BBQ. The main feature of the courtyard is the therapeutic hot tub.
If you like to spend any time in the kitchen at all cooking your favorite meals for the family you are going to love this spacious upgraded kitchen. All the stainless steel appliances are top of the line "Viking" including the double oven / stove, microwave, dishwasher, warming oven, and trash compactor. The "Sub-Zero" refrigerator / freezer has more than enough room during your stay. The cabinets are custom-made keeping with the country cottage theme. The kitchen also includes all of the cookware, pots / pans, accessories, and place settings that you will need throughout your stay.
Den / Entertainment Room
This is the room where you can kick back and watch your favorite movie or TV show on the 60" wide-screen TV with DVR, DVD, and Netflix. The owners have also agreed to include their library of over 100 movies on DVD for your enjoyment. You also have the option of watching these movies with surround sound. This room also includes a fireplace and the hot tub is right through the French doors. Perhaps you can watch a movie while you relax in the hot tub!
The wine cooler mini-refrigerator is right around the corner in the office.
