Home of the Day: A tricked-out modern farmhouse in Corona del Mar


A cantilevered window wall operated by a manual gear-crank system is among the custom touches at this modern interpretation of a European farmhouse, found in the Cameo Shores enclave of Corona del Mar.

Designed for intimate entertaining, a subterranean courtyard set within a two-story steel-and-glass curtain features an artful fire pit and water feature. A 3,000-square-foot lounge level is complete with a home theater, game room, wine cellar and wet bar.
