One of the first things that pops out to the prospective buyer about Alison McCormick‘s latest listing is the family room that seats forty people.
Knowing McCormick, she could fill the room to overflowing. The SoCal native was recently featured in Newport Beach Magazine as the rep for a luxury property on her home turf. It’s no wonder McCormick managed to catch the publication’s attention: the veteran agent has been licensed since 1977 and has built her career on one of the central Teles tenets: above and beyond personal service to every client, and deep knowledge and professionalism blended with a warm and human touch.
The knowledge of her market is likely what led her to her latest property at 436 Snug Harbor Road in Newport Beach. Directly adjacent to the 40 person living room is the six bed, eight bath home’s real secret weapon: a great kitchen built for those who love to cook. Featuring a 48-inch Viking cooktop (that’s four of the feet in this 5800 square foot home across which one could sprawl), a walk-in pantry, an enormous center island and, perhaps most exciting of all, a brick-lined, refrigerated wine cellar.
Of course, just because you have access to a great kitchen doesn’t mean you always have to use it. Part of the draw of the $4.195 million home is the Cliffhaven neighborhood in Newport Beach. Nearby, one has access to world class pizza at Pizzeria Mozza. A bit further up the road is Newport Beach mainstay the Rusty Pelican, an upscale but casual and comfortable steak and seafood standby with amazing views. If one was thinking of getting that wine cellar stocked, there’s the Winery Restaurant right next door, with an expansive list of global wines, ready to be enjoyed on site alongside their amazing view, or at home, at 436 Snug Harbor, at yours.
