Corona del Mar has gorgeous beaches, exclusive shops and renowned restaurants, but it also has a charming residential neighborhood known as the “flower streets.”
These streets, named after such blooming flowers as Marigold and Poppy, offer a backdrop to some of the most premier custom residences in the village.
Of all the flower streets, the 200 and 300 blocks of Orchid Avenue are regarded as the most coveted and premium locations, which is where realtor Eliisa Stowell has facilitated a flurry of buying and selling.
It is not often that a realtor represents both the buyer and seller in a transaction, but Eliisa recently assisted both sides of the transaction in two house sales on Orchid Avenue, and represented the buyers in another two.
In 2014 Eliisa sold two lots off-market, representing both the buyer and seller. Those new homes will be completed this year.
The house at 210 Orchid Avenue is a West Indies style collaboration between designers Stan and Karen Andrade, Patterson Custom Homes and Blackband Design Studio.
The house at 214 Orchid Avenue is an Eastern Seaboard design influenced by California Coastal Chic style home by architect Cynthia Child and designed by Kelly Nutt.
A major remodel and expansion of 219 Orchid Avenue is also coming along across the street and will feature a soft contemporary look by William Guidero.
This summer, the home at 304 Orchid Avenue will be torn down and turned into another new modern farmhouse-style home with Mark Teale as the architect.
These new custom homes offer a change in scenery, and bring even more prestige to a cherished local neighborhood.
