Home of the Week: Newport Beach penthouse offers a fair way to live

The fairways and greens are just a stone’s throw away at this penthouse, which takes in golf course to ocean views from its top-floor location overlooking the Newport Beach Country Club.

Tailored for modern living, the three-bedroom condo is largely unrestrained thanks to an open-concept floor plan. A chef’s kitchen with an oversized island is joined by living and dining rooms to form the common area. Retractable glass doors are used to create indoor-outdoor space.
