This breathtaking residence is located at 10 Skycrest in Newport Coast, CA. It was built in 2002 and boasts 6 bedrooms and 9 bathrooms. It is listed at $20,800,000. By the way, what’s with all the statues?!!

HERE ARE THE LISTING DETAILS:

One of the finest view estates in all the Newport Coast, this exquisite Pelican Crest residence occupies an exceptional, oversized parcel. Breathtaking panoramas of the sea can be seen from throughout the house, terraces and gardens. Grand, yet incredibly private, the house sits discreetly hidden behind a hedgewall.  A series of gardens and courtyards begins with a colonnade of Italian Cypress, flanked by Mediterranean gardens planted with olive trees, citrus and roses. Classical Renaissance architecture defines the residence and its tastefully detailed interiors. Impressive for entertaining, the requisite living areas open to a covered loggia and vast ocean view gardens beyond. The spacious master suite occupies the seaward facing second floor and includes a private ocean view terrace. In the garden, a separate pavilion services entertaining. Completing the property are multiple garages at grade level (ideal for collectible cars) and a separate guest suite with a private entrance.

    Beautiful, although I would have like to see more of the exterior, especially the front. View is phenomenal, and the interior looks well done. And the listing agent’s website is great in my opinion. Looks like something you would see from a high-end architect.

    I like the exterior, very much. The classical styling is beautiful and the grounds look lovely. The interior has way too much beige and brown for me. But, it could be great. The bones of the house are good, but the decor needs some oomph. There are way too many disembodied heads inside and out; I’m not sure what the fascination is. The first things to go would be the Roman Chia Heads on the dining table.

    Another day, another Newport Coast listing.

    Agree with Daniel, would like more pics of the facade, but also more of the interior, there were only a handful. I also agree with his assessment of the agent’s website, very well executed.

    The home is just okay in my opinion. The landscaping and outdoor areas are great, but not much stands out about the interior, it’s a little too formal for me. The dining room in particular is really underwhelming. The view certainly doesn’t suffer because of this, but the shoestring lot is unappealing to me as well. I’d be curious to see a floor plan to see if the “long & skinny” look of the exterior is translated to the flow of the interior.

    Great house, but not a big fan of Newport Coast. It is like it is trying to be Beverly Hills when it is just a glorified subdivision.

    Very well done this one. Greek style; the eye’s drawn to the entrance at picture #1, the walkway (correct me if you will, I don’t know the correct (English terms) on photo #3, that’s what I learn at architecture school here.

    House is great, some things I would change but other then that it’s pretty much great!

    Wonderful exterior grounds and landscaping – quite amazing.
    Home inside is more formal than my taste, but the quality is obvious there.
    Well done in my opinion.
