Styled through the inspiration of the elegant Faberge eggs, this over-the-top gilted and muraled home in Newport Beach, California’s Big Canyon Country Club community took 18 years to complete. Not surprising when viewing the mind-boggling decor details. Fronting the 18th tee of an exclusive golf course, it is also located near the heart of the Newport Beach business district.
Many have described the 7,000-square-foot house on its one-third acre corner lot as living inside a Faberge egg. The front entrance opens into a two-story foyer and grand staircase as a preview to the interior of the all-formal house. Included are living and dining rooms, four bedrooms, six baths, a subterranean wine cellar and tasting lounge with full catering kitchen. The media room is said to be hidden away and contains a drop-down movie screen. Outside is a pool and spa surrounded by gardens, reflecting pools, fountains and statuary. Newport Beach’s fanciful Villa Faberge is priced at $9.888 million.
