Arbor Real Estate's Ron Millar is pleased to represent 4601 Perham Road in Corona del Mar for sale. This property is a breathtaking European-inspired, yet modern, farmhouse designed, built and furnished by Spinnaker Development ( According to its architect Chris Brandon (, this spec home is “a romantic interpretation of classical design with modern flair.” One of the many elements that make this spectacular $13,995,000 home for sale unique is the use of a circulation spine to intersect the home, which orients the entry on a separate axis to provide an unobstructed and framed view of Catalina Island and the Pacific Ocean by the means of a cantilevered operable steel wall system. 

Spinnaker is the premier ultra-luxury developer and builder in Newport Beach and this is the firm’s newest and most innovative build to date, incorporating traditional architectural materials and form while introducing a contemporary open floor plan concept, pursuing maximum ocean views. Spinnaker founder Mike Close says of the home, "This project has been three years in the making, and we've pushed the envelope more than ever before. We've literally twisted the home 10-15 degrees off of its entry axis to capture the area's best views - while also including a massive open span of undulating mahogany-paneled ceilings supported by exposed steel beams that runs the length of the house." Close outlines other stunningly unique aspects of the home, which include a two-story steel and glass curtain wall surrounding a private subterranean courtyard complete with a sculptural linear fire pit and water feature, a prototype cantilevered steel window wall (operated by a custom designed manual gear crank system) framing Catalina Island views, a floating steel staircase, and a 4,000-square-foot lower level. 

The living areas of the 5 bedroom, 8 bath, 7,721-square-foot home are centered on an expansive peninsular fireplace and oriented towards the rear, bluff-top grounds; complete with a pool and large spa, all with the Pacific Ocean as a backdrop. The dramatic entry is also accompanied by a large open subterranean courtyard that filters light down into the 3,000-square-foot lower level where one can enjoy private outdoor living with a fire pit and ample entertainment spaces, including; state of the art theater, game room, full bar, conditioned wine room, gym, and guest suite, as well as a large 2,132 square foot garage. The home also features interiors by Kevin Smith of Details A Design Firm ( including furnishings (included in sale) custom-designed and -made for the home.
