Discover an intimate living experience in harmony with the sand and sea at The Wedge House: a brand-new (2022) decadent-masterpiece flawlessly designed as an entertainer's paradise. Set on two oceanfront lots (2168 & 2172) at the end of the Balboa Peninsula, this trophy estate occupies one of the largest oceanfront homesites in coastal Orange County with a combined view frontage of appx. 140-feet. Overlooking the legendary Wedge surf break, with unbroken ocean, whitewater, beach, channel, China Cove, park, and shimmering city-light vistas, the exquisite four-bedroom, three-and-one-half-bathroom residence’s smooth contemporary style reflects the efforts of revered GRAHAM Architecture and premier custom home builder Chris Gallo of Gallo Builders. A double-height foyer and custom pivoting door present the stunning interiors of appx. 3,725 SF and introduce the lower level dedicated to an office with outdoor access, an after-beach changing room with shower, and a magnificent beachfront primary suite with two walk-in closets, high-end spa-caliber bath featuring a freestanding tub and rain shower, and two sets of glass pocket doors that open to an oceanfront patio complimented by panoramic views and an open-air fireplace. Ascend to the main level by the Elevator Boutique elevator or wide custom staircase with 1"-thick glass stair rails, and find three additional bedrooms and two-and-one-half bathrooms. Floor-to-ceiling walls of glass in the living and dining areas create an on-the-water effect enhanced by slide-away glass pocket doors that open to a fireplace-warmed ocean-view deck. Vaulted hemlock wood ceilings lend architectural drama to the space and flow seamlessly onto a water-view courtyard with an outdoor kitchenette, and a sleek, modern kitchen showcasing custom cabinetry from Germany and top-tier Gaggenau appliances. A residence of this distinction deserves only the finest, and it impresses with hydronic radiant-heated floors throughout, Italian porcelain tile and white oak wood flooring, low-maintenance Caesarstone quartz countertops, Fleetwood doors and windows, Sonos speakers, J. Geiger automatic window shades, rift white oak interior doors, and a Savant whole-house smart-home system. A rare offering of two exclusive addresses, this landmark estate also comes with city and coastal development approved plans for a one-bedroom, one-bathroom guest house with a kitchen, courtyard, two-car garage, pool, and spa.
