First time on the market! This custom-built, six bedroom, three and one-half bath, traditional-style home is prominently positioned on an over a quarter-acre elevated lot, on one of Dover Shores most coveted, quiet cul-de-sac streets, Aldebaran Circle. A “classic” one-story, without a single stair inside the house, the home features a brick entry that leads into an entry foyer, a large living room with brick fireplace and beamed ceilings, a formal dining room, an island kitchen with stainless steel appliances, a contiguous family room with built-in bookcases, laundry, pantry and powder bath. The bedroom wing is highlighted by the pool-view master suite with a private bath and double vanities; in addition, there are two bedrooms that share a hallway bathroom, and a private kids wing with three bedrooms, a bonus area, and a private bath. The backyard features lush landscaping, a grassy backyard, fire pit and a generous sized swimming pool. Residents enjoy use of the exclusive Dover Shores Homeowner’s Beaches and facilities (including multiple BBQ picnic areas, sports courts and boat storage) as well as access to numerous walking paths that wind around the community to the Back Bay nature preserve, nearby Castaways Park and the local waterways from the Newport Aquatic Center. Award-winning Mariners Elementary and Newport Harbor High schools are within walking distance. Bring your imagination, “hammer” or favorite architect; opportunities abound, live in the existing home “as-is,” remodel, or build from the ground up the house of your dreams.
