Posted by Claire Adams — July 9, 2012

1341862333Jim Watson and Joele “JoJo” Watson of Surterre Properties® recently facilitated the sale of a gorgeous Irvine estate that was on the market for nearly $7 million.

Spanning an incredible 10,000 square feet and perched on a highly desired single-loaded street behind the gates of coastal Orange County’s prized Shady Canyon enclave, the stunning residence located at 25 Needle Grass boasts a warm Spanish-inspired esthetic, giving it a feel that’s as quintessentially “California” as the lush natural scenery that surrounds it. What’s more, the completely custom home has been masterfully designed to include a spacious theatre, a gym, a game room complete with a wet bar, a wine cellar with accommodations for more than 1,200 bottles and elevator service to all floors.

1341862429“JoJo and I were taken aback by the beauty of this property, as was our client,” explained Jim Watson. “From its stellar views and beautiful design, to its location right in between two of the most prestigious lots in Shady Canyon®, it represents one of the most coveted lifestyles Orange County has to offer.”

Given their impressive professional backgrounds, it’s no surprise Jim and JoJo excel when it comes to facilitating transactions such as this one.

“Jim and I bring to the table complementary skills and capabilities, ensuring our clients that all the bases are covered,” Joele remarked. “Together, we ensure discerning clients in the ultra-luxury sector the level of white glove service they expect.”

1341862449An award-winning real estate team, the Watsons boast more than four decades of collective experience as top-performing sales executives, augmenting their broad-spanning real estate expertise with a formidable foundation for negotiating scenarios of the highest value.

“The attention to detail required to successfully orchestrate a transaction at the luxury level really can’t be underestimated,” Jim said. “In addition to the warm and friendly work environment that Surterre provides, they’ve given JoJo and I access to invaluable resources and advantages that allow us to give our best when it comes to providing one-on-one service. Surterre guarantees the best possible experience for our clients — that’s why we’re here!”
