Out of every Newport Beach home that has hit the market this year, only a select handful can truly claim to have received the same amount of love, thoughtful care, and intentional design as 1118 Nottingham. The house's great floor plan was originally designed by locally renowned architect, J. Herbert Brownell. Consistently and stylishly nurtured and improved on for the past 20 years by a genius artist/architect couple, this home is finally ready for its next chapter of life and new owner. In one of the city’s most highly coveted neighborhoods and walking distance to local parks with back bay views, NAC for canoeing and SUP, the local library, and award-winning schools, the location alone is tough to beat. Inspired by the work of Frank Lloyd Wright, the remodel design concept integrates the interior and exterior spaces in a timeless design of organic architecture. Materials used are various types of woods, rocks and stones, metals, glass, and specific plants throughout. For transition between the inside and outside spaces, the house includes large windows and skylights, glass doors, and focal points of highlighted features. With the design and function of every inch of the 2,475 sq ft considered, the house offers a beautiful private environment to enjoy a lifestyle amongst people and activities that mean the most. An obvious case-study in first impressions, the way this home captivates from the moment the custom door and trellis catch your eye from the curb, all the way through the aromatic award-winning private garden entryway, is one that’s not easily forgotten. Notice the attention to detail throughout, from the Santos Mahogany doors and floors, to the smooth dune-like carpets to match the custom hand-cut stone and marble fireplace. The kitchen has custom maple cabinets with built-in appliances, granite countertops, travertine slab backsplash, a peninsula for 2-person dining, work station with file drawer/cabinet with grommet at countertop for electrical access, and a bay window for viewing the backyard tropical gardens. The custom lighting and woodwork throughout the home extends to the private master bedroom and master bathroom featuring white Carrera marble floors and Azul Bahia granite countertops and back splash. Azul Bahia is solely mined in Bahia, Brazil and is legendary for being the most beautiful and bluest granite in the world. A perfect match for the beautiful and rare opportunity that this home provides.
