It’s always a noteworthy moment in real estate news when an ocean view mansion comes on the market in the $20 million+ category…even by California’s high luxury standards. With that in mind, this 13,600 square-foot architectural masterpiece recently came on the market in Newport Coast’s most exclusive enclave of Crystal Cove for $22,800,000, turning both heads and eyes.

Naturally, as far as fine ocean view estates go, this masterful estate cannot be replicated in today’s market. Set against the awe-inspiring backdrop of the Pacific Ocean, the residence evokes both the beauty and charm of the Old World with stunning craftsmanship and custom detailing. Featuring carved ceiling domes, intricate medallion designs and exotic stones such as rare onyx, the mansion is, by all accounts, a rare work of art. Every detail has been carefully chosen, right down to the custom powder room with brilliantly designed walls of natural marble, limestone and onyx. Upstairs, the private master retreat, with adjacent office, reveals a floor-to-ceiling custom fireplace and built in king bed. Designed for gracious entertaining, the residence features a palatial formal dining room, grand European style ballroom with gorgeous chandeliers, entertainer’s bar and game room, climate controlled wine appreciation room with wine display for 850 bottles, and a state-of-the-art multi-tiered, media room. The gorgeous Orange County weather and sunsets can be enjoyed with an outdoor living area, barbecue, bar, fireplace and fire pit, infinity pool, 10-person spa, and private putting green. Additional amenities such as radiant heated floors, a secondary caterer’s kitchen and 10-car garage subterranean garage also capture intrique.
