Noir Blanc Interiors Looks To Land 75 million “Portabello” Seaside Mansion on the Market in OC, California

The market might be down however in Interior Design there is always a big fish to catch. This $75 million dollar Orange County, California estate is on the market offering a RESORT LIFESTYLE: The Portabello Estate features a two-level grotto with a pool, two spas, a tunnel slide and a swim-up bar. Brion Jeanette, a Newport Beach architect, designed this expensive home in the llate seventies. The art deco home theater of the Portabello Estate features a stained-glass feature overhead. The estate also includes an automotive museum to house a collection of vintage and new cars, a boutique for the homeowner's jewelry collection and a cafe. The stunning half-mile of sandy beach at Emerald Bay sits below the property with rock, palm trees, grass borders and a walkway that winds along the sand’s edge. With expansive views of the Pacific Ocean, dolphin pods and tide pools, this estate at Twenty Two Emerald Bay offers one of the most stunning views on the California Coast. The value truly lies in the property itself, and not necessarily in the original structure, which was built in 1979. The home that sits on the property is a late seventies contemporary multi-level design. While it is a fantastic structure in its own right, the buyer will most likely build a new home, as the property can accommodate a 10,000+ square foot structure. What this estate needs is a rock star owner and with an appreciation of our love of this resort lifestyle design at Noir Blanc Design. President Barbara Segal of Noir Blanc Design, has worked on coastal estate projects on the coast in Annapolis, Md, Palm Beach, Florida, New Port, Rhode Island and LaJolla California and numerous Yacht Interiors. "This is an amazing gem of a design project to be had!" states Barbara Segal of Noir Blanc Interiors.
