Irvine Cove is considered the most scenic private beach on the coast of Orange County â€“ and home to the area's most expensive and desirable properties. Only five homes in the community open onto the sands of this private beach â€“ and 2431 Riviera is the largest and most private. The parcel of approximately one-half acre features 180 linear feet of frontage on the sand. Surrounded by spacious terraces and mature gardens, this sublime Mediterranean Revival style residence feels like a private resort. Walls of glass enhance the striking views of the emerald waters seen from every major room. Nearly ten thousand square feet of interior space is arranged in a flowing plan of graciously scaled rooms. The great room alone is nearly one thousand square feet - and features three seaward exposures. The warmth of the surroundings is reflected in the colors and materials selected for the home, which include honed limestone floors, artisanal bronze, and finely crafted millwork. The interiors are uniquely harmonious with the seaside locale. This is an incomparable opportunity to live and entertain without compromise in a private beach setting.
