Home Of The Week
1901 Kings Road
Perched upon the seaside cliffs that run alongside California’s picturesque Pacific Coast Highway resides one of the most coveted streets in Newport Beach. A place where custom estates hug the twisting route known as Kings Road, boasting sweeping views of Newport Harbor, the Pacific Ocean, Catalina Island, and beyond. Close proximity to the sand and harbor has fostered a close-knit community deeply rooted in coastal endeavors and maritime tradition. Among the luxury homes in this sough-after enclave is 1901 Kings Road.
Completely rebuilt in 1991 by distinguished architects, The Woods Group now based in Santa Ana, the custom-built estate offers more than 8,000 square feet of living space spanning three levels. After the reconceptualization, even former MLB American League MVP and Angels slugger Maurice Samuel “Mo” Vaughn was drawn to 1901 Kings Road, calling it home for some time.
While both grand and luxurious in stature, central to the home’s vision is ease of living. Large windows and glass sliding doors frame water views around every turn. The main house features 4 bedrooms and a large bonus room with the entire upper floor (approximately 1,200 square feet) serving as an entertainer’s haven with a theater, bar, and large balcony. Downstairs relish in relaxation with the at-home sanctuary that includes a sauna and spa room.
Beyond the main residence is an approximately 1,020 square foot casita with private kitchen and bath offering an escape for out-of-town visitors. The epitome of coastal living, the outdoor loggia is a desired refuge offering a fireplace and private sitting area. Set against an awe-inspiring backdrop of impressive yachts gliding through the harbor and Southern California coastline as far as the eye can see, find the lap pool, spa, and putting green perfect for the golf enthusiast.
