Newport Beach’s Balboa Peninsula: a sandy, sinewy arm reaching out from where Balboa Boulevard meets Pacific Coast Highway, terminating in the massive boulders and salt spray of the jetty, where surfers, villas, shoulder to shoulder, yacht after yacht, align themselves in the exclusive Peninsula Point community, far from the Balboa and Newport Piers, the Fun Zone, and the Catalina Flyer–four miles of sun bleached hair, M5 BMWs, men wearing button ups from At Ease and women lounging in St. John, this is the home to these four new homes courtesy of Rincon Homes.
Designed by architect Bradford Smith, this quartet of homes revels in its clean, crisp, chic California coastal farmhouse design scheme, allowing the whitewashed bricks, board and batten siding, shingles, expanses of sliding glass, and elegant water-wise landscaping to create wonderfully cohesive, imagined and stylized agrarian-rooted vision of the California of yesteryear. The California of citrus and avocado groves, when you could catch a Los Angeles Pacific Electric Red Car from Union Station and ride it down to the Peninsula, the California in between its rancho days and suburbia—a truly mesmeric fantasy world. But what an aesthetic it lends, allowing for just the right amount of form and function to shine through, and sometimes compound one another.
The homes, located on an intimate cobbled street across from the two court Peninsula Point Racquet Club, each fill matching long, lean rectangular lots, and, yet each home uniquely approaches its arbitrary setting by creating multidimensional, light, bright, voluminous spaces allowing the breezy beach air to mingle indoors as your partner sets the table while you slice up Roma tomatoes for bruschetta on the expansive marble island, little Alden finishing up tennis practice with the pro across the street, Isabella working on homework upstairs. These homes offer up Peninsula living four ways, all while cohesively set within their distinct milieu.
