This opulent home in Newport Coast’s Crystal Cove community takes cues from Northern Italian design with gilded ironwork, hand-carved stone fireplaces and elaborate floor medallions. Oversized iron entry doors open to a grand foyer marked by Corinthian columns and set beneath a coffered ceiling dome with a 54-inch-wide crystal chandelier. The elaborate features continue with a European-style ballroom, a dining room with a 37-foot wall of glass and an infinity-edge spa that extends into the coastline.
