    Oh for God’s sake…again a very nice Mediterranean style home…in ALL BEIGE/TAUPE/ECRU!!!!!!!!!!!!! Enough already!

    With that said, this home has some beautiful details, such as the living room with checkerboard fabric walls, the awesome library, awesome kitchen and theater. The rest is a little boring, but still very elegant. Exterior I can’t quite figure out; looks like three or four different homes from the pictures. Either way, I like the inside more than I do the outside.

    Did the realestate market in CA recover overnight? This home was listed for 10.75M in 2006 (most likely sold for even less) and now they want 18.95M. Good Luck finding someone to pay that.

    As Daniel said, there IS way too much beige and brown. I think the house is beautifully done inside, but but because the color pallet is made up of such bland colors, it’s not that exciting.

    I like parts of the grounds quite a bit. The pool set right into the lawn with no coping is stunning, although it would have matched the style of the house a little better if the corners were rounded and more natural looking. I pity the poor gardener who has to trim the grass at the edge of the pool, and keep it out of the pool.

    That being said, someone would have to pay me $18,950,000 to live in Irvine.

      I would not be surprised if that grass is fake…not exactly astroturf, but some high-quality synthetic grass.

        Oh, very good point. That didn’t occur to me, but I’ve seen it with plenty of large houses here. The grass on the putting green of this house looks real but that around the pool does look a little too perfect; it may well be fake.

          FAKE GRASS!? Wow, I had no idea that some of these mansions have fake grass.

      AMEN to that Grrrowler, beige is obviously the “no-brainer” color for homeowners & interior designers who don’t have the courage of their convictions……very sad. Also, I’m curious…..what’s so pathetic about Irvine? Educate me, please.

    Visually stunning (if not quite common style) home. But I swear, you guys, that about three or so photo’s of that house are computer generated. I’ve got quite a good eye for being able to spot that kinda’ stuff. And too many of those pics are simply TOO DARK, even if the place is quite professionally decorated. The view is UTTERLY BREATHTAKING, as is that outta-sight pool….I’ve never seen one like that…really fantastic and utterly unique. I agree about the price though…GOOD FREAKIN’ LUCK, Mr./Mrs./Miss Seller……you’re gonna’ NEED it, BIG time. Wouldn’t you LOVE to know how many homes in California are priced above a million clams, RIGHT now?? I guarantee that the number would make us all extreeeemely dizzy & nauseous.
