Former Los Angeles Angels baseball star, Gary Matthews Jr., has put his custom-built Newport Beach mansion on the market for a staggering $22 million. Matthews acquired the property in 2013 for $3 million and has since commissioned a 6,232-square-foot residence with four bedrooms and seven bathrooms.
Nestled in the picturesque neighborhood of Corona del Mar, the architectural masterpiece was designed by Carlton Graham and boasts a luxurious array of amenities. As visitors step inside, the home artfully introduces itself, gradually revealing breathtaking panoramic views. The gated entry courtyard ensures privacy from the street, leading to a striking pivoting glass entry door.
The main level of the home is designed to be open and bright, adorned with floor-to-ceiling windows and fold-away glass doors that frame the captivating vistas and fill the interiors with natural light. It features a great room with a fireplace and dining area, a kitchen with top-of-the-line appliances, and exquisite white oak ceilings with limestone floors and wall accents.
The property’s allure extends to the outdoor spaces, including a heated view deck with a BBQ bar, perfect for hosting outdoor gatherings. Additionally, a terrace offers an infinity-edge swimming pool, providing a stunning setting to unwind and enjoy the surrounding views, which include passing yachts, mesmerizing sunsets, and shimmering evening lights across the water.
While Matthews previously listed the property shortly after its completion in 2015, a buyer was not secured at that time, leading to the decision to relist it now. With its prime location and luxurious features, the mansion is poised to attract potential buyers seeking the epitome of Newport Beach living.
