20292 Cypress

20292 Cypress, Newport Beach, CA 92660

Designed and built by Architect Frank Schneider as a weekend getaway for him and his family, 20292 SW Cypress is a case study in relaxed coastal living. Spanning nearly 20,000 square feet, the parcel makes use of ample room for recreation with a full-size tennis court, large grassy yard, three car garage and wrap around courtyard. Eight sets of French doors surround the impressive redwood facade, inviting the outside in. The interior features a blend of mid-century modern style with rustic, industrial elements. The open floor plan was ahead of its time, featuring open kitchen, living, and dining areas, complemented by a laundry room, along with two bedrooms and a bathroom on the first floor and boasts soaring ceilings and a dramatic chimney flue which climbs nearly thirty feet from the living room floor through the ceiling. The second floor features a large lofted living area with dramatic gallery walls and a master suite which houses two full bathrooms and walk-through closets. The third level features an artist's loft with drafting tables and a sense of seclusion and offers a bird's-eye perspective of the rest of the home's interior. The owner and architect's passion for art, design and sport is evident throughout and can be seen in the architectural elements, gallery walls and massive sports court in the rear yard. This home is one of a kind and offers a beautifully unique experience for residents and guests alike. Tennis Anyone?
