Somethings are just really over the top and I would have to put this home right up there. Portabello stretches across three oceanfront lots and is a private sanctuary designed for intimate family living and social gatherings. The name comes from Italian meaning beautiful door and it’s doors lead to unparalleled beauty to say the least. The home sold in late 2010 for $34.1 million, less than half the original $75 million asking price!
This spectacular home offers a combination of amenities unmatched on the southern California coast. Green lawns span vast ocean frontage. Views on both sides of the home are stunningly panoramic, yet absolutely private.
22,000 square feet of luxury: 8 bedrooms, 10 bathrooms and 5 half bathrooms, a fantastic 2,000 square-foot master suite and exquisite, large living spaces ( living room, dining room, family room and pool house lounge). The oceanfront estate has exceptional entertaining facilities like a complete gym, a 2-lane bowling alley, a movie theatre complete with marquee, powder rooms, stage and ticket booth, a jewellery display space and an automotive museum that can display up to 12 collectible cars.Everything here is high-end – from spaces to details, from design to high-tech comfort features.
It is a comfortable place, where casual, intimate spaces gently transition to open areas perfect for formal entertaining and large family gatherings. Astonishing recreational facilities are surrounded by high grotto cliffs that rise high above a lush inner lawn, pools and spas.
