About the property

Offering some of the most dramatic and expansive views in Newport Beach and Corona del Mar, Spyglass Hill is one of Corona del Mar's best kept secrets! Rebuilt in 1996, this is a rare opportunity to lease a custom home with panoramic ocean, Newport harbor, city lights, fireworks, and sunset views. Enter through the private gate and discover a dining area, lush tropical landscaping, waterfalls, and a tropical-inspired pool and spa! A grand entrance with sweeping staircase, high volume ceilings and several French doors where you will enjoy views from nearly every room. The backyard features an additional outdoor spa and gas fire pit. This five bedroom, five and one half bathroom home features a spacious primary suite, secondary suite, and den upstairs with two fireplaces and three balconies to capture ocean views and twinkling city lights. Downstairs you'll find a secondary junior suite that leads to the back patio with views, two additional bedrooms (one en-suite & private entry,) one large hall bath, powder room, library, laundry room and a gym/bonus room with access to the front pool area. The spacious kitchen features appliances such as SubZero, wood cabinets, and a casual dining bar that opens to the family room--complete with a fireplace and additional dining area with views. Entertaining is a pleasure with the formal living room (complete with fireplace and bar) and the formal dining room.
