This newly built Santa Barbara style mansion is located at 19 High Water in Newport Beach, CA and is situated on a 1/2 acre lot. It features 12,230 square feet of living space with 7 bedrooms, 11 bathrooms, formal reception rooms, wine cellar, billiards/entertainment room with bar, iPad controlled home theater, 8-car subterranean garage, swimming pool, guest casita and much more. It is listed at $14,900,000.

While I like most Newport new builds, I don’t think the interior of this one matches the high listing price. There’s nothing WOW about it. Sure, it’s situated on a bigger lot than most of the homes (still a small lot considering the price), but I’d much rather have THIS Newport home.
