In Crystal Cove, a resort-style estate seeks $62 million
An ocean-view estate in Newport Coast’s Crystal Cove neighborhood is on the market for $62 million.
Completed in 2020, this 14,500-square-foot home with six bedrooms, 10 bathrooms and an open floor plan has surfaced as the second-most expansive listing in Orange County—right behind a $69.8 million Palladian-style creation in the same neighborhood. It could nab the spot as the county’s top seller this year if it goes for even half the asking price.
A $29.888 million Laguna Beach home with a gym that sits below a glass terrace and “peers into the transparent underwater wall of the infinity-edge pool” holds that title so far. Like that 8,140-square-foot contemporary-style home on a quarter-acre-plus lot in upscale Montage Ocean Estates, this gargantuan comes with all the bells and whistles you’d expect from a luxury home.
Disappearing glass walls open onto a 78-foot triangular infinity pool with a custom glass wall. A barbecue kitchen and bar, fireside family room and lush tropical foliage add to the resort-style backyard on this nearly half-acre lot.
The main living areas open to a courtyard.
Upstairs, the primary suite holds a soaking tub, glass-enclosed shower and a walk-in closet. The primary bedroom opens onto an ocean-facing terrace.
Other amenities include a movie theater, gym, sauna, wet bar and lounge with a wine wall, and elevator.
“With all the bespoke amenities that would be at a five-star resort, this brand new estate boasts unobstructed, front row ocean views while maintaining utmost privacy, even for the most elusive buyers,” said Aaron Kirman of Compass.
More than luxurious, the listing markets the house as 95% self-sustaining, energy independent through state-of-the-art technology but offers no specifics except one. A 3,500-square-foot, eight-car garage that can hold eight cars comes with four electric vehicle charging stations.
The garage also features a fully equipped kitchen that’s ideal for catering.
According to the Multiple Listing Service, the house has been on and off the market for a few years. In February, it sought $55 million. It has also surfaced for rent for $175,000 to $375,000 a month as recently as June.
