Once the tide of homes listed this week rolled out, this opulent Orange County stunner stood alone as the most expensive new listing on realtor.com® for the week.
It’s exclusive as well as elegant. Custom-built in 1996, it’s one of just five houses on Irvine Cove Beach that open directly onto the sand, with access allowed only to residents.
At 10,000 square feet with six beds, seven full bathrooms, and two half-baths, the home is the largest of the five beachfront offerings, and sits behind a gate of its very own.
So along with a massive Mediterranean-style abode, a buyer will acquire 180 feet of coastal frontage and private stairs leading to a private beach. Which is some seriously primo sand. (Sorry, a surfboard isn’t included in the purchase price.)
With mesmerizing views of the water from multiple decks and an outdoor space surrounded by mature gardens, the home resembles an exclusive vacation resort.
Walls of windows in the main living spaces take advantage of the water views, which are visible from the living room, a “gathering” kitchen, formal dining room, and family room plus billiard area. There’s also an office and several bedroom suites with views of the ocean below.
The great room is nearly 1,000 square feet and also features walls of glass. Rustic finishes include honed limestone floors, artisanal bronze, and finely crafted millwork, according to the listing. Rob Giem is the listing agent with Compass.
The private beach is enjoyed by divers, surfers, and skim boarders when conditions are right. The estate stands out not just in its price and size, but also for its one-of-a-kind setting, which may call out the right billionaire who enjoys a day at the beach.
