With a garage bigger than most people’s houses, 9 Del Mar along Newport Coast, California is a jaw-dropping property elevated over Pelican Hill South Golf Course with unimpeded views of seven holes, as well as Newport Harbor, Catalina Island and the open Pacific Ocean all the way to Palos Verdes. The property hit the market earlier this year for a whopping $35,000,000 and is only being shown to select serious buyers who will appreciate the home’s resort-style nature and the use of high-end technology throughout.
The property is the only one in Newport Coast to have an interior motor court and to kick it up a notch, it also has an automotive turntable for ease of egress. The 7-9 car garage is more like an automobile museum, as it has fire rated windows allowing for a sweet view from the adjacent walking corridor. Inside the garage is a full-service detailing workspace with an RO water system and drains, tile floors, art lighting, display cabinets and an abundance of storage space.
Surrounding the garage on the same level is the 10-seat theater room with a 3D projector and soundproof walls, as well as a game room equipped with an HD golf simulator system and two racing seats for gaming. There’s also another game room for billiards with a walk-out to the backyard and a view to die for framed by the stone wall of the pool. The interior also has a gym, a salt-water aquarium in the Great Room and technology to control almost everything within the home.
The view is not all that will wow you in the home’s rear yards. The infinity edge pool and spa have a walk-in reef, expansive sunning deck, sunken seating, a waterfall and a stream reminiscent of Crystal Cove. The covered pavilion offers outdoor shaded area and there’s plenty of space to bask in the sun, as well. Cascading down to the lower levels, there’s a viewing lawn with fire bowls, a putting green and a “hammock site.” Altogether, the backyard can accommodate a gathering of 200-300 people, matching the total square footage of the home at 15,000 square feet each. In total, the estate covers 30,000 square feet of the premier Newport Coast lot.
