One of the finest ocean view estates in all the Newport Coast, this exquisite Pelican Crest custom residence occupies an exceptional hill top parcel of nearly one acre. Breathtaking panoramas of the sea and coastline are viewed from the house, terraces and the expansive Mediterranean gardens. Grand and yet incredibly private, this Palladian style residence is discreetly hidden from the street behind walled gardens. A mature colonnade of Italian cypress leads guests through a forecourt planted with olive trees, citrus and roses. Classical Renaissance architecture defines the substantial residence and its tastefully detailed interiors. Impressive for entertaining, the two-story reception hall leads to spacious entertaining rooms opening to the loggia, courtyards, pool and vast ocean view gardens beyond. The master suite occupies the seaward facing second floor and includes a large viewing terrace. In the garden, a separate pavilion and bar service outdoor entertaining, overlooking the ocean. Completing the property are multiple garages at grade level (ideal for collectible cars) and a separate guest suite with private entrance. This is truly one of the finest custom residences in Southern California.
