The Harbor Island Residence is a traditional home located on a private island within Newport Harbor. The home’s three stories are celebrated at the foyer with nearly 30 feet of volume. The staircase bookends the entry, as well as conceals the wine storage and corking area. Adjacent to the foyer is the executive office suite.

The main living space consists of a bar, lounge, great room, dining and kitchen in an open plan married with Old World detailing and finishes. The second level contains the master suite, three secondary bedroom suites, laundry, gym. The third-levelentertainment space houses a bonus room and bar, and opens to a rooftop deck.

Extensive exterior detailing complements the stone finishes and is capped by a mixture of natural slate and zinc roofing.

From the Judges
This is an elegantly classic design, and executed perfectly on a very constrained lot. The magnificent windows are perfectly positioned to capture views from the site.
