This "unicorn" property offers a once in a lifetime opportunity. AQUARIUM is a distinctive and stunning home that will sit on the shore near the opening of Newport Harbor to become the prominent landmark of China Cove, one of the few sandy beaches on this beautiful bay. It enjoys unobstructive views of Newport Bay, Harbor, Newport's famous Jetty, the Pacific Ocean, Catalina, and destinations beyond. This home is positioned to enjoy spectacular sunrises, and sunsets. Architect Brion Jeanette has turned his attention once again to creating a unique and environmentally sensitive home that will surely become another of his iconic architectural masterpieces. AQUARIUM is designed to fully embrace its spectacular environment with expensive inverted glass windows to reduce heat gain from the south and west and protect the coasts aviary population from unintended bird strikes. It's gentle curves, complement its nautical positioning, so that it sits proudly, like a beacon, at the water's edge. The house is elevated on pilings to address the projected rise and tide and it is also protected by a stunning rock revetment that helps protect not only this incredible home but the cove it overlooks. But AQUARIUM is not just a stunning piece of art, active and passive energy techniques are cleverly designed into the sustainable home that could become net zero, when completed. AQUARIUM enjoys approximately 7000 ft.2 of incredible living space with approximately 2200 ft.2 of outside decks and open space. AQUARIUM is designed for an owner that loves nature, the art of architecture, and seeks individuality. AQUARIUM has been approved by the City of Newport Beach and is currently moving through the California Coastal Commission's review process and expected to be approved Fall 2024.
Corona Del Mar offers legendary restaurants, world-class shopping, surfing, boating and water sports right outside your front door...... literally "toes in the sand" from your oversized wrap around patios and decks. Rarely does an opportunity arise to acquire such a property as 2701 Shell. Photos are renderings only.
