One of the World’s Finest Homes: Chateau Pacifica, Pelican Crest


Resort-like Retreat Above Newport Harbor is Situated on More than One-Half Acre


Overlooking Newport Harbor and the expansive shoreline beyond sits the majestic Chateau Pacifica, a luxuriant, 11,098-square-foot property on more than half an acre in guard-gated Pelican Crest, one of California’s most exclusive communities.  Graced with a harmonious blend of French provincial, Mediterranean and California coast architecture, this seven-bedroom home boasts an abundance of the most exquisite amenities, including sweeping patios off the top-level bedrooms; hand polished, Venetian walls; marble-clad baths with double showers, steam showers and sunken or soaking tubs; five fireplaces; a lushly appointed home theater; a dance studio; a 1,500-bottle wine cellar and separate tasting room; and a 12-car, underground garage with an elevator to the home’s three levels. Two equally luxurious guest suites on the main level and an au-pair suite on the lower level allow for maximum convenience and comfort. The home is further distinguished by a unique collection of the finest appointed details, including retracting, telescoping doors that create an open-air passageway between the family room and adjacent poolside loggia, a centralized audio system that shares music throughout the property, and an island in the gourmet kitchen made from an antique table once used by Tibetan monks. The resort-like exterior is adorned with a swimming pool with in-ground spa, curtained cabana with a fireplace, loggias, open patios, balconies and verdant landscaping that frames the exquisite, ocean vistas.
