Russian professional boxer Sergey Kovalev listed his Newport Beach contemporary Mediterranean home this month.
Available for $3.7 million, the light heavyweight World Champion’s L.A.-area residence spans 4,200 square feet and holds five bedrooms. The recently renovated mansion boasts new mid-tone hardwood floors, and a lengthy series of contemporary styling cues that create an open, generous living style.
The combination living room, dining room, and kitchen is especially impressive. The gourmet kitchen is the centerpiece of the renovation, though, with a rustic, urbane, loft-like feel that contrasts intense warmth with industrial inflected cues: exposed ductwork and brick, natural wood cabinetry, and white countertops.
The exposed brick is picked up elsewhere: outside, and in the formal dining space as well. The formal living room with its walls of windows, central fireplace, and sparkling chandelier combine into a common space that is bright, optimistic, classic, and just a little bit formal.
The property exterior is as inviting, and entertainment-ready, as the interior of the house: patio space, a grill, a pizza oven, and a swimming pool with waterfall features accumulate into a very appealing outdoor living style.
