Many bayfront homes in Newport Beach have docks and boats. But an estate on the market at the tip of the Balboa Peninsula also has enough space to include a backyard lawn, lemon grove and a swimming pool.

The home has 127 feet of water frontage on Newport Harbor. The dock is large enough to accommodate two 70-foot yachts and a Duffy boat, said Coleen Brennan of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices California Properties, the listing agent.

“We have a yard, we have a pool,” she said. “Most of these (homes) have a dock.”

The home is for sale at $17.9 million.

The two-story house sits on more than a quarter of an acre just up the street from the world-famous surfing spot known as the Wedge.

With 6,880 square feet of living space, the home includes six bedrooms, eight bathrooms, a formal dining room and a wine cellar. The kitchen has a view of the bay and seating for more than 10 people.

The owners obviously like brick, which covers the kitchen walls and floors and frames the swimming pool and the bathtub in the master bedroom. The home also has hardwood floors throughout.

Brennan said she has attended parties at the house that have accommodated hundreds of guests.

“They have all the necessary formal spaces, but it (the house) lives informally,” she said, with a nod to a bulldog lumbering along nearby as she gave a visitor a tour of the home.
