The famous Portabello Estate, which is located at 4627 Brighton Road in Corona Del Mar, CA, has been re-listed for $49,600,000. The 30,000 square foot mansion is situated on close to an acre of oceanfront property. It was built by Frank Pritt, the founder of software company Attachmate Corp. He first put the home on the market back in 2006 for a whopping $75,000,000. The unique estate is designed to resemble a nautilus shell, with a large open area at the center and chambers, including eight bedrooms, spanning outward. The home boasts 8 bedrooms (including a 2,000 sq.ft master), 12.5 bathrooms, large living room, gourmet kitchen, office, 3 kitchenettes, 180 degree ocean views, a swimming pool with a two-story grotto , two spas, swim-up bar, tunnel slide, poolside lounge room, and a barbecue area. The entertainment level has a bowling alley, Art Deco home theater, automotive museum, jewelry store, cafe, and a gym.

    I have always loved some of the interior details of this home, especially the mini-mall, home theater and bowling alley. Some of these elements would definitely find their way into my dream home. The exterior is nothing spectacular, but the home looks fun to live in without sacrificing quality.

    This really is an ugly house and that’s why it’s not going to sell for the $75m he wanted or the nearly $50m now.

    What to say…

    I do like the exterior from the ocean side. It’s architecturally interesting, and even blends into the surrounding much better than the boxy houses on each side. The outdoor spaces are the best feature of the property. I especially like the two-level courtyard space, and the “hanging” pool/spa set into the rocks above the ocean.

    The interior reminds me of an airport (as does the exterior to some degree) from the living spaces that look like frequent flyer lounges to the food court/duty free shopping. Speaking of that, I hate hate HATE the shopping mall. It makes me cringe just looking at the pics. It’s beyond the height of kitsch, right down to the names of some of the “stores”. The Blossom Dairy Cafe? Blossom Dearie was a jazz singer, and it’s clearly a reference to her. While I appreciate the reference to a very talented singer, the whole mall idea just seems tacky to me.

    I applaud the idea of the owner building something so personal, but it’s too personal to have much appeal to anyone else. Add to that the limited number of people who can and will spend $49,600,000 for a house and Pritt will be lucky to get anywhere near the asking price.

    YET again, my friends…………WHAT to say!?!?

    I personally love the house, only ’cause it suits my extreeeemely modern/artistic/sensual & “dreamy” sense of what homes right on the ocean in California should look like. But NOT that ridiculous “mall”…….GAG me. And that sense of the above is (I’m sure) shared by a breath-takingly small percentage of people who could afford that mulitple-kings’ ransom price these days. And as usual with me, it’s entirely too huge……I’m sure the seller could’ve gotten along JUST FINE, SOMEHOW with 15,000 square feet.

    What will NEVER, EVER stop confoudning me & taking my breath away is people like this who spend like this on a home, and then sell it (like I’ve mentioned sooooo many times already) A FEW YEARS after it’s finished!!!!!
    And, with this place….it’s NOT EVEN HIS full time home……literally mind-boggling. Everyone’s right, though…….if this place sells for HALF of what the seller wants, I’ll be amazed…….it’s ACUTELY personally designed, decorated & executed……..poor multi-multi-million & billionaires!

      It’s like I have said before–tens of millions is almost nothing to these guys that have over 500 million bucks. Even if it’s 10% of his net worth (850 mil?), he still has 750+ million left. Much different than someone with say, 5 million spending 1 million to build a home. These guys CAN run out of money, to be sure, but they usually don’t believe it until there down to their last few millions.

    I do not agree with the assertion that a dream home, once built, loses its allure. I can think of plenty of dream homes of mine that I would most certainly live in. The problem, I think, is that the owners are idiots and build the homes so HUGE. A BIG home has a magical allure to it, but you must also take into account the fact that for housing only one or two people, a home TOO big can end up being a pain to live in.

    On this home, I like many aspects of it, it has a lot of stuff perfect for a California, oceanfront mansion, BUT, I do not at all understand the point of a mall inside…!? A mall is for shopping and needs people. I don’t want an empty make-believe mall in my home.

      Could NOT POSSIBLY agree with you more, Kyle. That these incomprehensilby wealthy (and stupid, as far as “dream” homes are concerned in my never-humble opinion) build homes that for every concievable PRACTICAL (and WHO NEEDS PRACTICAL, when you’ve got tens or hundreds of millions to piss away on a first, second, third or fourth, etc. etc. house, huh?!) are unlivable when they’re finished, simply due to their utterly ABSURD SIZE and ensuing maintenance costs. You’d think that the SMALLEST amount of common sense (WHAT am I thinkin’, huh??) would leak into their brains and they’d realize that they’re NOT going to be hosting 500-guest-strong charity fundraisers EVERY weekend, or be putting up 25 family & friends as houseguests EVERY weekend, so they’d honestly be able to squeak by SOMEHOW in a house of (GASP!) 10 OR 15 THOUSAND square feet……but then again, that’d take Common Sense…..an TRULY endangered thing as far as human beings are concerned today.
