Peaceful. Stunning. Picturesque.
Whatever words you choose to describe Crystal Cove, chances are they won't quite do justice to this coastal gem along the pristine shores of the Pacific Ocean.
Nestled into the Newport Coast community, Crystal Cove offers residents an idyllic place to call home. Blufftop residences take full advantage of the infinite ocean views and represent the peak of luxury homeownership. Award-winning schools and majestic green spaces prove a draw for families. Restaurants, shops, and direct access to Crystal Cove State Park complete the otherworldly lifestyle.
While the landscape is what first catches your eye, the homes in Crystal Cove are the true prize. Comfortable and spacious condominiums. Opulent single-family homes. Grand estates with every luxury one can imagine. Notable architecture and even a historic district with cottages dating back to the 1920s and 1930s. All are located in a self-contained community featuring distinctive guard-gated access.
If it all sounds too good to be true, don't worry. Crystal Cove is very real. And whether you're looking for a primary residence or a second or third home, here are 11 luxurious Crystal Cove mansions currently on the market.
$5,395,000 - 3,000 SF - 4 Beds 4 Baths 1 Partial - 2004 Construction
Single-level living is rare along the coastal bluffs in Orange County unless you purchase one of the many standout condominiums. A few single-family homes offer an exception to the rule, including the classic luxury of 20 Dunes Bluff. Views of the Pacific Ocean and Catalina Island are the showstopper here, but the home's interior offers its own wow factor. Hardwood floors, custom cabinetry, vaulted ceilings, and an exquisite gourmet kitchen are all highlights. Outside is a courtyard and fireplace, built-in barbecue, cabana, sandpit, water features, detached, private casita, and—of course—those stunning Southern California views.

36 South Sur
$13,750,000 - 8,400 SF - 5 Beds 5 Baths 2 Partial - 2020 Construction
If 4,000 square feet is too little and 12,000 too much, lets us introduce you to 36 South Sur, whose 8,400 square feet of newly constructed contemporary bliss is just right. A grand private courtyard and dual floating staircases wrapped in marble are just the beginning of the opulent residence. Ideal as a private retreat or welcoming entertaining space, the home is grandeur defined.

The home is a genuinely grand affair on a scale that is hard to describe. Its roots are firmly planted with the most immaculate Italian villas while honoring its coastal California locale.
