1724 Via Coronel, Palos Verdes Estates,
As you cruise along the easy curves of Via Coronel, climbing higher along the Palos Verdes hillside, the vivid contrast of lush green against blue sea comes clearer into view. At one of the street’s highest points a gated entrance leads onto a tidy circular driveway, neatly framed with old-growth trees and shapely green hedges. Welcome to 1724 Via Coronel, a Panoramic Ocean View European-styled estate that’s been thoughtfully refreshed to support an elegant mode of coastal living. At approximately 11,000-plus square feet, this masterpiece spans 6 bedrooms, 7 bathrooms and is positioned on a high-altitude lot that’s been as lavishly considered as its grand, sun-splashed interior. A tennis court and a resort-style pool deck with a bubbling spa and outdoor kitchen are among the highlights; so too is the ocean view fountain system inspired by the elaborate fountains at Bellagio. There are manicured green spaces too, designed for playing games on the lawn or quiet meetings over sun-soaked sunsets. So neatly linked are the outdoor spaces with the home’s interior, there seems to be little division between the two. Styled in the vein of European sophistication, the three-story residence is generously scaled and equipped with architectural markers of traditional luxury. There’s a grand entrance stretching 30 feet skyward that’s centered by a gold rotunda, filling the crisp interior with natural light and introducing the opulence of home. Floors of finely grained wood, set in a classic chevron pattern, contrast against sunlit white walls, and the home’s airy spaces are set apart by graceful archways and regal columns. Prime gathering spaces—like the refined salon where flames flicker in the gleaming stone fireplace; or the deep-teal study, where you can enjoy a favorite book beneath the classic, coffered ceiling. Dining spaces are free-flowing and modern, from a formal dining room that neatly adjoins the welcoming, sunlit kitchen that’s decked in gleaming appliances. Smoothly as the home flows for everyday family life, it also neatly shape-shifts into a versatile entertaining home. There’s a near-endless selection of spaces—from spacious, elegant configurations where one can host a fresh-air fête for hundreds, to kid-friendly and contemporary areas, like the tech-savvy theater or the plush arcade stocked with classic video games. Not to miss is the tranquil cedar sauna, gym, yoga studio or the brick lined wine cellar. This home truly is a one of a kind.
