Newport Beach estate goes on the market for $30 million

To hear listing agent Jason Morrison tell it, the view from 3729 Ocean Blvd. alone is worth nearly $30 million.

The 7,000-square-foot mansion, called Crown of the Sea, is on the market for $29,995,000. Built into a seaside cliff in Corona del Mar, the home has panoramic views of Catalina Island, Newport Harbor and Little Corona Beach.

Noted Newport Beach architect Brion Jeannette designed the home near the corner of Poppy Avenue and Ocean Boulevard. Construction began in 1997 and was completed in 2000.

The architect also designed the 30,000-square-foot Corona del Mar mansion known as the Portabello Estate, which has been valued as high as $75 million. The Portabello features an automobile museum, movie theater and bowling alley, among other amenities.

What a totally over-priced rip-off. More real estate greed at it's greatest and a superlative Vision of Vulgarity.

just cuz u cant afford it doesnt mean that some cant, or shouldnt.

Hmm, it's the property tax that would be painful...
