Make your coastal living dreams come true with this rare to market, spectacular oceanfront corner estate lot in Newport Beach at Peninsula Point that offers breathtaking surrounding views of the harbor, ocean, coastline and Catalina.One could argue that this is the best Oceanfront location in Newport, given its 270 plus degree unobstructed views that begin at China Cove, travel along the harbor entrance, overlook the world-renowned Wedge and continue with coastal vistas and spectacular Catalina Island sunsets.

You can enjoy the welcoming 3,300 square feet retreat immediately while potential designing your dream compound that optimizes these amazing views, beach access and privacy.


Wake up to breakfast by the sea and fall asleep to the soothing lull of waves in this existing four-bedroom retreat that includes upper level main living and entertaining area with endless water views and a balcony for enjoying the ocean air. The secluded master bedroom completes the upstairs floor plan. The lower level offers a second living area, including
a small kitchen and private access to the most notable beach in all of Newport, featuring every local body surfer’s nirvana - the infamous Wedge.

An oversized rooftop deck is the perfect spot to enjoy the picturesque vista, watch magnificent yachts go by or gather with friends and sip cocktails during those crimson California sunsets. The secluded residential location of this exclusive section of the Peninsula affords one of the most private and least populated environs that marries California beachfront and bayside living.


When you are ready for a little action, the Peninsula Point Racquet/Tennis club, offering great year-round amenities, is a short stroll away.  A leisurely beach walk or bike ride brings you to the vibrant hub of the Peninsula to enjoy shopping, dining and nightlife. Aquatic activities such as jet skiing, parasailing, or kayaking are easily accessible. The Balboa Peninsula has been
undergoing a revitalization during the last few years, welcoming world class restaurants such as Nobu and sophisticated on-trend boutiques that include Warby Parker and Elyse Walker.  A continued emphasis on upscale growth permeates this
desirable strip of land nestled between the ocean and the bay.

This is truly a unique opportunity to build a Malibu-style compound in a world-renowned beach town that is also a preferred vacation destination for paparazzi worthy tourists from A-list celebs to international royalty.

As it is with many prestigious properties, 2172 E. Oceanfront has the potential to become a ‘named’ compound establishing its reputation as a generational estate within the Newport Beach community.
