History, style and a whole lot of opportunity await at this exceptionally rare Mid-Century Modern home in
Newport Beach. Hidden at the end of a long tree-lined driveway, the extra-private residence is one of the
only Case Study homes with standing designs in Orange County, and just one of two in the county produced
by celebrated American modernist architect Calvin C. Straub. Straub made a significant impact on
architecture as both a designer and an educator. His modesty, confidence, passion for life, and no-nonsense
approach resonated with a generation that, like himself, came of age in the World War II era. A popular
professor of architecture, Straub’s influence is felt to this day. Incorporating the many iconic design cues of
MCM design, this home was built in 1956 and presents a canvas on which to imprint today’s contemporary
style. With an expansive floorplan extending approximately 3,065 square feet and an equally generous
homesite embracing almost .45 acres, the residence offers virtually unlimited opportunities. Return it to its
original Case Study roots, improve it with luxe upgrades, or rearrange it to suit the lifestyles of 2023.
Currently, the home’s step-down bonus room, family room, office spaces, three bedrooms and three baths provide
a solid foundation on which to create a design that will continue its legacy of showcasing how carefree and
stylish modern living can be.
