NEWPORT BEACH, CA - Kevin Kanda sells one of the top lots in the guard gated community of Emerald Bay for $17 million. The brand-new home set records for price per square foot for an off-water property in Orange County, valued at approximately $4,000 per square foot. The seller was in the process of building a brand-new home at 58 Emerald Bay when the out-of-town buyer purchased this off-market listing mid-construction for all-cash. Kanda represented the seller whom he also sold this property to seven years ago.
Known as one of the best properties in the community, 58 Emerald Bay is the result of a unique collaboration between the owner, who is a designer and visionary himself, and a top architect, builder and designer. Perched on the cliffside in the esteemed Emerald Bay community of Laguna Beach, this three-level statement piece on the ocean side of Emerald Bay showcases panoramic views of Emerald Bay Beach, Catalina Island and breathtaking sunset vistas. The newly built property features four bedrooms and six bathrooms with floor to ceiling windows that overlook the Pacific Ocean.
Originally constructed in the 1950’s, 58 Emerald Bay is approximately 5,000 square feet and includes private beach access, two outdoor showers, an outdoor fire pit, in-ground spa and expansive media room. Other notable highlights include pocket bi-fold doors for seamless indoor/outdoor living, custom black walnut cabinetry, basalt finishes, large format limestone flooring, black and white marble as well as Sub-Zero and Wolf appliances.
