$20 million listings are not uncommon in California’s exclusive Crystal Cove community. Custom lots in the 620-acre hilltop housing development boast views from Laguna Beach to Palos Verdes. The surrounding master-planned Newport Coast neighborhood encompasses wide boulevards, protected beaches, Crystal Cove State Park, high-end shopping, and the world-renowned Resort at Pelican Hill.
Listed at $20,995,000, 1 Deep Sea stands apart from its neighbors for its 6,000-square-foot, temperature-controlled garage. Antique granite cobblestones cover the garage’s floor and barreled ceilings accented with Murano chandeliers. Among parking spaces for 25 cars are an entertainment lounge and a 1,500-bottle wine cellar with a tasting table. Special permission was granted so the garage would be accessed by way of not a ramp but rather a street-level driveway, to accommodate low-profile vehicles.
Such attention to detail carries on through the rest of the 10,600-square-foot home, which is finished in French limestone, French white-oak flooring, and Venetian plaster. One of seven bedrooms, the upstairs master suite opens to a private upper terrace with ocean views and has separate bathrooms, dressing rooms, and closets. Classical gardens, indoor/outdoor terraces, and a backyard pool, spa, and fire pit—along with California’s temperate climate—make the home ideal for hosting large parties year-round.
