Sited at the crest of one of Newport Beach's most premier streets, this 1950s era ranch house was designed by famed architect, J. Herbert Brownell for Fred R. Horsley using the simple forms and organic materials he was known for. The existing structure is located on a rectangular parcel featuring 70' of width at the street with sweeping views of the Newport Harbor, Catalina Island, the Pacific Ocean south to Dana Point, and beyond. The home's location at the highest point of Kings Road features an ideal South-facing view exposure with lines of sight directly to the harbor's turning basin and surrounding islands. The nearly 12,000sf parcel features a mild grade and has an enormous buildable area allowing for a builder or developer to maximize the views and discover the highest and best use for the property. The existing structure houses a generous living area with vaulted ceilings, three bedrooms, three bathrooms, a large undeveloped space downstairs, and an attached two car garage. The livable area in the existing residence is 1329sqft which can be expanded to 2000sqft by utilizing the approximate 600sqft undeveloped space that exists below the two upper-floor bedrooms of the existing residence.
