The Privileged Coastal Pleasures of Crystal Cove

For the fortunate few who can claim Crystal Cove as home – those who reside behind the gates, atop the bluffs, alongside the canyons, and overlooking the majestic Pacific coastline — there is a rare sense of awe that greets the day – followed by inspiring tranquility that signals the night.

These are just some of the privileged coastal pleasures that await you every day at Crystal Cove, where the estate homes of The Tides and SeaCrest join with the debuting regal residences of SeaPoint and a completely new offering of custom homesites – all set within this amazing seaside enclave’s incomparable Newport Coast® location.

“Crystal Cove has taken its place as one of the most prestigious communities to grace the coastal landscape of Southern California,” said Suzanne Maddalon, senior director of marketing and research for Irvine Community Development Company LLC, an affiliate of The Irvine Company LLC. “Now, homebuyers seeking the ultimate coastal location, luxury and style can choose from the remaining homes at The Tides, the spectacular residences of SeaPoint and a handful of limited-edition custom homesites now available for purchase.”

SeaPoint by Laing Luxury Homes is an intimate collection of only 27 detached estate residences. The neighborhood’s homesites averaging more than 21,000 square feet offer broad coastal perspectives.

Distinguished by authentic Formal Tuscan and Santa Barbara styling, SeaPoint’s three two-story floorplans exhibit the architectural design mastery of Robert Hidey Architects. Homebuyers benefit from the expertise of Laing’s professional design consultants at the onsite Design Studio as they make selections to personalize and individualize their new homes in a multitude of ways.

SeaPoint interiors range from approximately 6,134 to 6,800 square feet of living space, offering five to seven bedrooms and up to eight and one-half baths — perfect for growing families. One plan features both a first-floor master bedroom suite and a private guest casita. Another is highlighted by a workshop/optional wine storage room in the garage. Flexible areas such as an office and media room can adapt to different uses, per plan.

Maximizing the homes’ highly prized coastal setting, an abundance of interior spaces flow gracefully onto inviting outdoor spaces such as courtyards, sheltered loggias and decks, enriching day-to-day living and entertaining alike.
