Zimmerman House on Balboa Island

In 2006, this is the first house in Newport Beach to use a personal computer to synchronize the lights to dance with the music! Ten songs are programmed (including "Jingle Bell Rock", "All I Want For Christmas Is You", "Sleigh Ride", etc.), to create a fantastic light show with the lights twinkling, shimmering, and dimming, to the songs. The house is anchored on one side by an eye-stopping 25 foot green blinking Christmas tree. On the other side the eight foot wide chimney is draped in a carpet of red lights inter-mixed with white lights that vertically spell "Balboa Island". Blinking candy canes, stockings, bells, and snowflakes all add to the fun. There are 24,000 light bulbs in all.

Located at 327 Sapphire Ave
