Recently sold by KASE Real Estate, this Newport Beach, California Modern Farmhouse went through a massive renovation by the designer and former homeowner, Colette of Colette Luesebrink Design, and it now features an incredible dark exterior with board and batten siding and interiors influenced by Boho design. Here, the realtor shares some insights on this inspiring home:
“Welcome to the Farmhouse of the Future. Completely re-imagined by Colette Luesebrink Design and one of the best houses on the 2019 Newport Harbor Home Tour, this home is everything you want, everything you need, and beyond. Sophisticated style and a neutral organic palette accent 5 bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms, and over 4700 sqft. The living and dining areas flow seamlessly to the kitchen with Calcutta marble island, allowing uninterrupted sight lines through the LaCantina accordion door system to the backyard with sparkling pool, spa, and built in BBQ, making entertaining or watching the kids a breeze. The detached office and additional playroom offers the perfect separation between adults and kids, work and play. European White Oak floors, Cle Zelliege Tile, Wolf and Sub-Zero Appliances, and Custom Cabinetry throughout, as well as Dual Nest Thermostats, a Lutron Caseta Smart Lighting System, and Milgard windows make this home not only beautiful, but also outfitted with the latest advancements in smart home technology.”
