    You know I understand why the homes are so close together on in Newport Coast. But..they just all look so cookie cutter. It’s like…Pleasantville.

    This house on the other hand is very nice. But I just dislike Newport Coast.

    Exactly. something is wrong with Newport Coast. It is like a place for the very wealthy but for very wealthy people who love the comfort of an utterly predictable suburb where you live right on top of your neighbors. This price has to be a publicity stunt. So many better houses in Santa Monica and Newport Beach. This place is on 0.85 acres. LOL. Why not just buy a townhouse if you want to be that cramped. I never liked or understood Newport Coast.

    When those three lots on the next street sell that view is gone. You’re gonna be looking at the front of those houses and over the roofs you’ll see the ocean.

    So is the street flooded or is it paved in high gloss marble – odd effect. The home itself is very beautiful, but as mentioned, the price is laughable considering the size of the lot. Even Palm Beach isn’t as overpriced as this!

      I noticed the “marble” street as well. Very weird. It’s got a slippery sheen like marble including the house’s own reflection. I don’t know much about Newport Coast, but I highly doubt the streets are made of marble. lol. 😉

      I’m leaning towards wet/flooded but it’s way too uniform. “Quick! Blast the street with water and take a photo REALLY quick!”. I don’t think it’s possible. So this must be photoshopped to some degree, but why?! And if you’re going to go that far, why not photoshop out the scuff marks and orange stains on the curbs?

      Silly argument, yes I know. But it’s so odd…

        At first it looked like the pic was taken from inside a car with the window up, but then I noticed the reflection was only on the street. Very strange.

    Beautiful home until I saw it on GMaps… its in a track home style development. At that price point you could be in West LA or Malibu on a few acres of privacy. I cant imagine someone in the $30M+ market is going to want to live in this type of mass home community. Prices needs to be dropped to about half to make sense IMO.

    It’s a very nice house, with a very unimaginative decor. The price is completely ludicrous, as are most (all?) house prices in Newport Coast. Like others have pointed out, Newport Coast leaves a lot to be desired, although people pay ridiculous prices to live in Newport Beach on even smaller lots. At least many of those are waterfront.

    I really like this home! It’s very comfy, simple, and even elegant in some areas. For me, the ceiling detail in all rooms except the kitchen make this home special. Without the quality materials and design, this house would be just another Mediterranean. Despite being a somewhat large house, the rooms seem to be a good size and the amenities are plentiful. I really like the master bedroom and the theater. A 10-car garage sounds pretty nice!

    I would never live here full time so the size of the lot doesn’t scare me much. But the price sure does… sheesh. I know Newport Coast is expensive and this is one of the largest homes in the area, but c’mon… I would be interested to know what the land is valued at and determine how overpriced the house itself is. Cut the price in half and we might be in the ballpark. While I might rave about some of the rooms, they are somewhat “unimaginative” like Grrrowler said. Especially for this price, they should have gone a little further and made this home a bit more luxurious. With a house like this, it’s the little details that really make a difference. The ceilings are nice, but the walls are kinda boring. The worst part is probably the staid kitchen.

    Overall this is an incredibly nice home and it easily ranks among my top favorite fantasy secondary/vacation homes (it weren’t for the price!). I will draw a lot of inspiration from the size of the rooms and the ceiling details. You’re on a roll this week Kenny!

    Divide the price by 3 and then you may have something. The house is fine looking but the small lot and lack of privacy are a drawback. For that much money, I would expect 3-10 acres, privacy, a large set back from the street, a tennis court, and a pool at least 60 feet in length. Orange County has many newer developments like this where the lots are small and you have a close up view of your neighbors’ homes with the ocean far in the back ground. I can understand a small lot if you are right next to the ocean but this community is spread out over a huge area. It really is just like any other suburban community just on steroids.
