After more than two months on the market, baseball star Justin Upton is getting more competitive with his O.C. listing. The MLB star has slashed $300,000 off the asking price on his Newport Beach home. Listed back in October for $6,795,000, the home is now listed at $6,495,000. The former Anaheim Angels player paid $4,726,500 for the modern farmhouse in 2020.
Nestled on the serene and picturesque Leeward Lane, the home boasts an impressive expanse of almost 6,000 square feet of living space, with five bedrooms and six-and-a-half baths. Rich solid oak hardwood floors, carefully milled from 125-year-old reclaimed barnwood, set the excitement for lux details and materials throughout.
Each door handle and fixture is crafted in solid brass, while Newport Brass plumbing fixtures elevate the bathrooms. The gourmet kitchen boasts top-of-the-line Thermador appliances, juxtaposed against handmade butcher block and lava stone countertops.
The centerpiece of the home is a bespoke three-level floating staircase, with three-inch solid oak treads, a striking symbol of architectural ingenuity. The open floor plan effortlessly merges the interior with the outdoor oasis, offering an uninterrupted flow through expansive 17-foot and 15-foot sliding door systems.
The outdoor decks were built with Kayu Batu wood, an inviting built-in BBQ area, and a firepit and there is ample space to accommodate a future pool. The lower subterranean level reveals a custom glass-enclosed wine cellar, and a surround sound theater area, while the fully equipped bar boasts a beer froster, ice maker, fridge, and popcorn maker.
The property is equipped with modern conveniences, Lutron wireless lighting controls, and dual Sonos systems, enabling both music and lighting control via user-friendly iPad interfaces. Encaustic cement tiles and 100 percent wool carpet imported from Holland add unique character to various spaces throughout the home.
