This magnificent estate is located within the exclusive, guard-gated community of One Ford Road. Award-winning schools; renowned shopping and entertainment at Fashion Island, Newport, Balboa, and Corona Del Mar; beaches; major freeways; and John Wayne Airport are all just moments away. This home sits on a huge corner-lot of over 17,000 square feet on Troon Drive, which is a private cul-de-sac street with only nine homes—all of which are massive custom-built masterpieces. This stunning Mediterranean, Italian estate can only be described as “dramatically romantic.” This home will seduce you the moment you enter through its large iron gates and into its over 8,200 square feet of ultimate luxury. The estate commands an immediate presence with its corbelled arches, custom ironwork, remarkable hand-laid tile work, dramatic chandeliers, and many sconces throughout the interior and exterior add to its romantic charm. Additional touches are the central vacuum, 6 fireplaces, fire sprinklers, hand-hewn wood beams, and trusses. The trusses found in the formal living room were taken from The Long Beach Mission and are perfectly retrofitted. The unique design and layout of this home can accommodate any-sized family or extended family. This home boasts six bedrooms, six bathrooms, a library, an office, an outdoor entertaining area, and every amenity you could imagine that are expertly spread over every inch of its idyllic living space. The gourmet chef’s kitchen offers a perfect space to prepare meals for family and guests: it has a separate butler’s kitchen and pantry, AGA range, Sub-Zero refrigerator, espresso machine, and refrigerated beverage drawers. The temperature-controlled wine closet and formal dining room with a unique mantle enables one to host both formal and casual gatherings. The master retreat is one-of-a-kind and serves as a romantic getaway: it has two fireplaces, a separate retreat with a sitting area, a wet bar, two walk-in closets, and a balcony that overlooks the pool. The spa-like master bath presents dual vanities, a hand-honed copper tub, and elaborate ironwork. There is an upstairs library to relax in the comfort of your own private refuge. The estate’s backyard is ideal for entertaining or just relaxing by the pool and spa with water features, lush landscape, an alfresco kitchen and bar, a dining area, and a fireplace. With two garages and a gated driveway, there is an abundance of space for residents and guests. This home was just reduced by nearly $250,000 from $7,495,000 and is very attractively priced at $7,250,000, which is only $883 per square foot. It is an absolute must-see. The home is professionally staged with furniture that can be purchased. The previous sale on Troon Drive was sold at $1,175 per square foot, making the sale price on this home a spectacular find. Homes on this private street simply do not come on the market often, so do not miss your chance to make this dream home your own.
