Even though this home is no longer on the market, I just had to share it with you guys! This stunning Italian inspired home is located on Skyridge in the prestigious Pelican Crest community of Newport Coast, CA. It was designed by Richard Krantz AIA and built by renowned Finton Construction. The gated home stands 35 feet high and boasts a spectacular front entrance with fountain. Inside there is approximately 11,000 square feet of living space with 5 bedrooms, 6 full and 2 half bathrooms, grand foyer with marble floors and an elegant sweeping staircase, formal living and dining rooms, great room, gourmet kitchen wit adjoining breakfast room, oval shaped office, library, game room, gym, home theater, 10,000 bottle wine cellar, 1200 square feet of terraces, loggias, swimming pool with spa and a subterranean garage that can fit up to 12 cars. It was on the market back in December of 2008 with an asking price of a hefty $20,995,000.

    As beige as it is, it really is a beautiful home. Two things I would change: 1) Living room needs a painting above the fireplace, although the mantle seems oddly oversized and 2) Master bedroom also needs something above the bed and nightstands. I hate having bare walls with no design or ornamentation whatsoever. And as much I like the 62S (too bad it isn’t a Landaulet), it does obscure the home a little too much.

      Landaulet? You mean the $800,000 more-than-a-62S convertible PoS that only rappers bought? I thought you had taste Daniel……

        But I would get the Exelero in black. It’s not my fault babbling baboons can afford an $8 million car :/

          Ah, the Exelero…it really evokes that obligatory phrase: “Darth Vader, your car has arrived.”

          Leave Daniel alone. It is not his fault he is deeply, deeply racist.

            Ha, yes, my “racism” is *obviously* apparent when you look back at my posts regarding homes in Arab countries or Russia. Oh wait, I’m not alone on that one, am I HOTR readers?

            Racism isn’t a matter to joke about. Countless people have suffered and died as a result of racism and while I’m sure or at least hope no one here is indeed racist, the manner in which some posts are written may suggest otherwise.

    I really like this house. I don’t think there’s any room inside that I have a major problem with, it’s really beautiful.

      Appreciation of fine homes often goes hand in hand with appreciation for fine cars…very rarely can I combine those two great interests of mine, so when a car comment pops up on here I jump on it 😀

    That garishness of parking an expensive car in front for the listing photo (yes, we get it…a rich person lives here) notwithstanding, it’s pretty nice. The interior is too beige and too impersonal, but that could be fixed. The spaces themselves look nice and with a better interior it could be a great house.

    And for the record, I hate the Landaulet. It looks like a cross between a presidential limo and the Popemobile. It’s not what I would call a classy, or elegant, vehicle.

      Oh come on. Any car that has the option of granite in lieu of wood cannot be anything *but* classy or elegant.

    Gorgeous home.
    The Maybach in the photo in front of the home is just tacky.
    Someone went overboard with the staging. see Master Closet and books on bookshelves.

    I am afraid I need to see a bing of this to look at the lot. The house is beautiful, but I am not a fan of Newport Coast. It’s a pre fabricated wanna be subdivision. Better to spend this money in Santa Barbara.

      It seems the home is located at 12 Skyridge. I agree with you regarding the lot-less homes in Pelican Hill. They are beautifully constructed homes, but have zero lot. I need at least a private driveway if I’m going to spend $20 million+ on a single-family home.

    Nice house. On the other hand, the pics are really color saturated, and make the place look garish.

      and no Koi pond either. No one who’s really rich will want it.

      You could NOT be more right, Mak. That what exactly my first thought upon seeing the pics…..ridiculous! I know exactly how the photographer did it, ’cause I can do just the same thing all the listings I’ve shot but it looks utterly cartoonish. Also, it’s just the WRONG side of technical misrepresentation…..all the photo’s in the listing with the CORRECT (read NOT grossly electronically enhanced) lighting & editing are most likely about 1/4 to 1/3 as bright and color-saturated. The new owner and their agent HAD to think the same thing….if they didn’t, neither of them are anywhere nearly enough observant.

    These homes are going to look so dated and ugly in just a couple of ears. They’re already eye sores in my opinion. And that ugly yellow mustard decor is just atrocious. I was in Brussels last weekend and visited this lovely area named lasne, basically the beverly hills of belgium and the houses there were amazing. The europeans really know how to do the euro style inside and out -duh. The americans should trying sticking to what they know best: modern, spanish, ranch, craftsman, and cape cod.
