$68 Million Starter Home

Spectacular $68M Newport Coast Mansion Is the Week's Most Expensive New Listing

 | Jun 11, 2020

spectacular mansion in Newport Coast, CA, with "unrivaled views" and "absolute privacy" is this week’s most expensive new listing on realtor.com®. It just landed on the market for $68 million, which also makes it the most expensive listing in Orange County.

A sale at or close to list price could place it on the "short list of priciest home sales for 2020,” according to the Orange County Register. It could also set a county record if it eclipses a $55 million sale in 2017.

“The quality of construction is really exceptional,” says listing agent Rob Giem with Compass. "This is not a spec house.”

The owners bought two vacant lots on which to build the custom abode.

“There are no more vacant lots in spots like this,” Giem says. “To get two contiguous lots in such a desirable location [is] very unusual.”

But the homeowners don’t live in California, according to the agent. Although they picked a prime location, they rarely using the magnificent mansion and have decided to sell it.
