    I love Hot Pockets but maybe I loved them too much.
    That is a big house.
    Nicely done though, sectioned off well.

      I’m from New Jersey and can attest to the fact that a Hot Pocket is essentially a calzone. Love that this guy made gazillions off frozen calzones!

    Paul built his wealth here in Cherry Hills. You can map his Colorado home. 8 Sunset Dr. Cherry, Hills, CO

    He’s know here for philanthropy–supposedly a real good guy.

    He’s got quite a collection going!

    It’s not too far from the Shanahan home you featured.

    On bedroom terrace, the house is UGLY! Its BRIGHT YELLOW. Its a very BEHR Yellow, the kind of yellow that should only stay inside a baby’s nursing room. Not a Bridgehampton yellow, a Baja California Mexican piñata yellow that you can only find inside a mexican liqour store. Sorry Paul, You are brilliant indeed but your wife must have really bad exterior taste(color)….p.s. Paint it a Sand Ivory Cream tone!!! Ciao<3 Alixoxo

    Actually the house is done very well, the yellow is actually from natural stone imported from Israel. If anyone should not be doing exterior designing it’s YOU!

    The whole underground of the tennis court is a parking structure.
    You can see the road winding down .
    The smaller building is a guest house.The other building is a pool house with showers bathrooms, bar, flat screens , heaters the works.
    The house finished in a venetian plaster, and imported stone .The picture does not give the color justice.(beHr yellow ,please…)

    The builder was Mark Falcon and the architect was Larry Scheiderer with Design West Architects out of Colorado. The project draftsman was Mitch Mcvey out of Colorado also. I specialize in the construction of this type and size of home in the area which Paul’s house was built. This keeps me aware of the different projects around me.

    If you go to the corner of Pelican Hill Rd South and Pelican Hill Circle and look NE you can see this home dominating on top of the hill overlooking crystal cove state park and the Pacific Ocean. A $19M assessed value

    I did a lot of the concrete work on this job. The property was purchased for $11 millon before turning over a stone. Also picture #2 shows a row of house just above his. One belongs to his daughter and the other his son. The subterranean parking under the tennis court is killer.I was told that it can hold 110 cars. The smaller house without the pool is the Maids quarters and the one with the pool is the Guest house. Killer views!

  • just got back from the home, i almost got lost inside, i cannot disclose why i was there but i can tell u that paul is a really nice guy, and he has a ton of art, sculptures, a bomb ass game room with juke box, foose ball, pool table, all the things u would expect a rich dude would have, the entrance was awesome, huge center piece sculpture, and massave x-mas tree, the bar room was all dark wood matching the piano, breath taking… p.s. haters, ill be going back soon, ill drop a line again when i get a better tour, haha…

    The underground parking garage is for more like 24 cars as I recall (I did some work on the property). I particularly thought the emergency alert system for “a child falling into the pool or lake” was something — it announces over loud-speakers all over the property when there is a break in the surface of the water bigger than a bird, and apparently meets the code requirements to skip having a pool fence.

    The house also had several panic rooms – closets that served the dual-purpose.

    Sadly, being that rich also leads to other security concerns: the house was divided into, I believe, 3 separate zones – and even when inside the house you needed to key in a code to open the door from one zone to the next. So imagine going from the master bedroom to the kitchen for a glass of milk, you have to key a code to open the door between the zones.

    The house also features an emergency generator large enough to run everything as if there is no power outage at all — and part of that installation was a fight with the city over how much underground diesel fuel storage they could have in a residential neighborhood. They wanted enough fuel to last 30 days or something — it was an enormous quantity of fuel.

    Awesome house, and very nice owners. I spoke to them only briefly, but both husband and wife were very pleasant and humble.

    General Contractor was Mark Falcone of Laguna Beach, who only does houses in excess of about $8mm as I recall. Another famous property for Falcone is the Newport harbor home of George Argyros.

    Had him as a passenger in limos; lousy tipper- with all that money.
