Now this description intrigued me no end, so I had to check it out. Fully described as “eastern seaboard style home with elegant California beach vibe”, and I think after studying the photos, I would have to agree. This home was part of a five home House and Garden tour presented by the Newport Harbor Educational Foundation in Newport Beach, California. Their proceeds from the Home Tours has raised a lot of money, to the tune of $500,000 over 5 years, that directly benefits student programs at Newport Beach High School. Enjoy the photos below and see if you agree that interior designer Stacia Dunnam, collaborating with Elizabeth Elliott Design accomplished a quite successful merger of two different style expectations. The architect was Brandon Architects, Inc. and the builder Patterson Construction Corp. All the homeowners were certainly gracious with their participation in this event. To thank them, the Foundation invites talented art students to draw or paint a rendering of the homes on the tour, and the drawing is then given to the homeowner in appreciation. Nice touch. The photo below is her rendering of the house shown in all the photos below, and was created by Eilish Zachary, 18 and a senior at the Newport High School. I think she did a very nice job!
I hope you enjoyed the tour. Thank you for stopping by. I am going to go outside and check on my second delivery of a dump truck load of topsoil for another new garden area. Not exactly ready for a garden tour! Laters, charisse
