An enchanting palatial estate behind the guarded gates of Pelican Crest. Reminiscent of an Italian villa, the five-bedroom residence is set on an appx. 300' deep parcel over 29,800 square feet affording unique privacy and extraordinary ocean, city, and Newport Harbor views. Enter through a gated whimsical garden featuring mature plantings, a soaring columned front entry, and stunning tuscan-style fountain. The stately interiors exude romantic details such as a polychromatic hand-painted Florentine-style dome accentuated by a Dennis & Leen rock crystal chandelier, floors inlayed in Italian limestone, venetian plaster walls, cast stone niches, solid mahogany entry doors to the library and living room, inlayed oak floors, and hand-carved Italian marble fireplace mantels. Exemplifying refined grandeur, the home is introduced by a dramatic double groin vaulted hall with checkerboard-style granite and limestone flooring and a solarium highlighted by a hand-carved Italian fountain that leads to one of three loggias. The reception rooms are scaled for entertaining. Among them, a living room upholstered in Italian silk strie and a formal dining room embellished in hand-glazed coffered ceilings, a crystal chandelier, and wool and silk damask wall coverings. The intimate family room is serviced by a built-in bar and features beamed ceilings, a wall of retractable leather books concealing television, and five sets of French doors opening onto two large loggias with a Formations fireplace mantel. Satisfying modern tastes, the chef's kitchen is accoutered with French limestone floors, quartzite counters, and a farmhouse-style sink. Equally impressive, the fully-paneled library offers redwood burl panels, private entrance to a powder room, hand-carved 22k chandelier, and French doors that open to a loggia. The fireplace-warmed primary suite occupies a separate wing of the second level and hosts upholstered walls, custom millwork, a private covered terrace overlooking the blue water vistas, large walk-in closet, and spa-like bath outfitted in Calacatta marble. The lower level is dedicated to a subterranean garage, bar servicing a billiards room with wood flooring and limestone walls, dry sauna, and theater. Additional highlights include an elevator, paneled walls, and hand-glazed pilasters. Near world-class dining, shopping, entertainment, and dressed with every amenity imaginable, this exceptional abode is the epitome of timeless elegance.
