The Tuscan coast offers some of the most spectacular landscapes in all the world. When homebuyers are looking to replicate that natural beauty in the heart of Southern California, they turn to Pelican Crest, the newest master-planned development in coveted Newport Coast.

Showcasing Mediterranean grandeur and views that bring to mind “Tuscany by the Sea,” 22 Pelican Crest Drive is one of just 99 homes in all of Pelican Crest and one of its finest examples of coastal estate living. Here, the best of Italian design and California living converge in a spectacular—and spectacularly convenient—location with the world at its feet.

This 9,790-square-foot custom estate features fine Italian craftsmanship at every turn, with an impeccable attention to both architectural detail and exotic materials. Enter into the Feng Shui-friendly home and you are greeted with a massive spiral staircase featuring exquisite wrought iron detailing—just one of the home’s artistic touches that create the ambiance of a Tuscan estate.

The gourmet kitchen features Italian granite countertops and a Blue Star French commercial stove, while floor-to-ceiling windows and soaring 12- to 14-foot ceilings create gorgeous vignettes everywhere you look.

This home was conceived and built for exceptional everyday use and entertaining alike. Host a gathering in the professionally appointed movie theatre with 10-foot fixed screen and padded walls or the billiard room. Serve friends at the cognac bar and make sure the wine cellar is stocked for the occasion. Even the eight-car garage is prepared, having been equipped for catering with gas valves and a commercial refrigerator.

At the end of the day, climb into your silk-lined elevator and retreat to your incredible master suite with sitting room, dressing room, spa bath, and wrap-around balcony offering stunning ocean views. Four additional bedrooms, seven baths plus one partial provide ample space for every member of the family as well as overnight guests.

With 165 feet of ocean frontage and an elevated orientation, this remarkable home invites sweeping views that extend all the way from San Clemente Island to the Los Angeles. Watch the sun twinkling off the Pacific and the city lights sparkling in the foreground. In the rear yard, beautiful gardens, a large pool and spa adorned with fountains from Italy, and a loggia with fireplace, ceiling-mounted heaters, and bath on which to take in sea breezes and sunsets further create the Tuscan coastal resort feel.
