Hello, my friends! How are you doing today? I hope you’re having a nice and sunny day!
It’s a real pleasure to be sharing this newly-built Newport Island beach house designed by Eric Aust Architect (recently featured on Home Bunch here: Newport Beach Bayfront House), built by Clayton Builders, Inc. and with interiors by Julie Clayton.
Things certainly have changed when it comes to beach house design since I started the blog ten years ago, and I feel that this change is even more evident in California. Beach houses are now more modern, with clean lines, and they feel more uncomplicated. You can certainly credit the “modern farmhouse” trend for this big change and I don’t think this will change anytime soon. In fact, in my opinion, this mix of modern and rustic architectural details is an important progress that is happening in the architectural movement of the late 2010’s going into the 2020’s era.
Here, the designer Julie Clayton shares more details about this specific new home: “We took our inspiration for this project from its idyllic location: a quiet manmade island tucked away on the Newport Beach Peninsula The home has ocean and bay views, is a quick walk to the beach or bike ride to Lido Marina Village. We worked with Eric to design and build our take on a modern beachhouse making sure to highlight the views with an expansive rooftop deck for entertaining.”
Take notes on all details below and have fun pinning your favorite interior pictures and save the floor plan shared at the end of this post! This home would work perfectly on any smaller lot, anywhere in the country.

This newly constructed custom home offers panoramic views from its rooftop retreat, designer finishes throughout, and a spacious layout designed to accommodate daily family life or entertaining a crowd. Amenities include: European Oak wide-plank flooring, Italian Marble countertops, custom cabinetry and finish carpentry throughout.

What I like the most about these new coastal farmhouse homes is how calm they often feel. You look at this space and it feels gentle, stress-free and it seems to keep you at ease. Nothing is too loud in this room and that’s a pleasant feeling.

On built-ins the builder combined shaker style paint grade cabinets with contrasting White Oak tops and shelves.
Furnishings and Accessories: Aiming for a welcoming and beachy vibe throughout the house, the builder worked in collaboration with the owner and lead designer of Alignments Home Staging to create a casual and collected feeling that complements the finishes and the light-filled spaces in this beach house.
