Crowning a prominent hilltop beyond the guarded entry gates of Crystal Cove, this exquisite Santa Barbara-inspired custom estate presents priceless 280-degree ocean views. Christened Cristal Marino, the estate, located behind its own set of private entry gates at the end of a cul-de-sac, also offers views of Catalina Island, coastal bluffs, crashing waves, passing sailboats, rolling hills and twinkling lights. Countless hours dedicated by genuine artisans have created an estate that appears tohave been settled on the land ages ago. Yet, upon closer inspection, it reveals itself as a modern take on timeless style. Discover state-of-the-art technology hidden behind romantic archways, intricate tile work, vaulted and beamed ceilings, hardwood flooring, tiled staircases and colorful stained-glass windows. Approx. 7,700 square feet, the residence is distinguished by 6 ensuite bedrooms, 6 full and 2 half baths, a great room, loft, billiards room, a separate fully appointed casita, and a glass-enclosed 900-bottle temperature-controlled wine room ideally located within the formal dining room. A catering kitchen and a main chef’s kitchen shine with Carrara marble countertops and high-end appliances. Nearly 16,945 s.f., grounds feature an infinity pool and spa, a pool bath with shower, dramatic fire bowls, a fireplace-warmed courtyard, and an outdoor kitchen with BBQ, sink and refrigerator. A motorcourt, ample parking, and an attached 3-car garage are also showcased.
