This glorious, never lived-in estate graces a large, nearly half acre lot in the highly exclusive guard-gated community of Crystal Cove, and revels in panoramic ocean, coastline, and city lights views from its romantic hillside setting. Exquisite Italian architecture draws you in immediately to this 9,000+ square foot estate, which is comprised of five bedroom suites plus a separate one bedroom Casita, a formal great room which opens to the spectacular veranda with its curved arches, fluted columns, and unparalleled views of the Pacific, a magnificent chef’s kitchen, separate family room and formal study. The upper level houses the bedroom suites with ocean view terraces, as well as a private tower room. Catering to the wine enthusiasts and entertainers, the lower level, which is accessed by a wide staircase and formal entry foyer, has a spectacular wine tasting room and a generously sized butler's kitchen. The extensive, private grounds encompass a refreshing pool and separate spa with ornate tile detail. A gated motor-court and garaging for four cars completes this magnificent home.
