A mansion in Newport Coast has sold for $61 million, breaking a three-year-old record for Orange County’s priciest residential deal.
The 19,000-square-foot oceanfront property was built in 2017 and first appeared on the market in June, asking $68 million, according to the Los Angeles Times.
The sale price is $6 million higher than the Orange County record set when a two-house compound above Newport Harbor sold for $55 million, also in 2017.
The Newport Coast main house spans three stories with six bedrooms and 12 bathrooms. The top floor has a large deck with ocean views. The property also has a guest house and 6,800 square feet of garage space for 12 cars.
Amenities include a home theater, gym, sauna and game room.
The property totals just under an acre and is landscaped with gardens and palm trees.
