Thanks to HOTR reader Tjeerd, we now have more pics and a website for this newly listed oceanfront mega mansion that’s listed at a whopping $65 million. It is located at 2585 Riviera Drive in Laguna Beach, CA and is situated on 1 acre in the exclusive private beach community of Irvine Cove. The 24,000 square foot home features 4 bedrooms, 9 full and 2 half bathrooms, formal living and dining rooms, gourmet kitchen with breakfast room, 2 loggias with fireplaces (one off the master suite), two home offices, 5 European imported fireplaces, billiards room with wet bar, home theater, gym, 6-car garage with motor court, glass guest house, swimming pool and a cabana with guest suite. Stunning, just stunning inside and out!

    While I love some of the interiors (the red-floored gallery is stunning) I am definitely underwhelmed by the exterior. This is the level of architectural sophistication that $65 million gets you? It looks like every other rambling mediterranean house in southern California. There’s no cohesiveness, symmetry, or even swagger; I guess my complaint is that I just don’t find it memorable…..which it definitely should be, at this price point.

    Ok, it is a very nice house, but I still would have trouble paying the asking price (or anywhere near it). The rear of the home reminds me a lot of Casa Bendita in Palm Beach:

    I just don’t like the white marble portico on the second floor – looks like a major afterthought. Interior spaces are lovely. However, I have no idea how it took 8 years to build this from start to finish. Eiffel Tower only took 2 years for goodness sake…

    There are some beautiful spaces and details inside. There are also some furnishings that I truly despise. Of course the views are amazing. But still, $65,000,000…

    Nice house— but remember guys… most of these SoCal Mega Priced estates end up selling for 1/2-2/3 of their initial list. This will probably sell for $30-40m if they really do want to sell. Big complaint is the house to the west is so close and would be looking right into your backyard swimming pool. No privacy.

    This is over priced. This aint Palm Beach. This aint the Hamptons. This aint Bel Air. This shouldn’t be anymore than $35 million. And some of those floors look too wacky and contemporary. They look like something you’d find in the rental house for the American Idol cast or the cast of Real World or something. It should look a little more traditional for that price point. I know some people like contemporary but to me it looks tacky when you mix a traditional exterior and pretty much traditional interior with random wacky contemporary stuff that doesn’t really fit. I think if you want it to be contemporary then go all out contemporary. But I hate when designers mix and match traditional and contemporary. But its a nice house overall in spite of some of the hot mess looking contemporary elements but the price is too high for Laguna Beach. I didn’t even know what Laguna Beach was until that tv show came on MTV or whatever. Its just not prestigious enough of an area to warrant that price especially for only 1 acre. I don’t think you’d get $65 million for one measly acre in Bel Air.

      My buddy’s house is on Ocean in Palm Beach and he tried to get $25 million for it years ago and could not so this is definitely not even worth $35 million in my opinion. Not a great looking house, not a great lot, no land and no parking for guests.
