We first covered this estate three years ago and since then it's been all around the web and even on Oprah but now the $75 million estate in Corona del Mar, California has disappeared from the market. The listing expired, according to a spokesman from the McGonigle Group, which last had the listing. Unsold, the spokesman said. The oceanfront estate is designed to resemble a nautilus shell, with a large open area at the center and chambers, including eight bedrooms, spanning outward. The home includes a two-story grotto with a pool, two spas, swim-up bar, tunnel slide, poolside lounge room and barbecue area. The entertainment level has a bowling alley, Art Deco theater, automotive museum, cafe and a gym. At approximately 2,000 square feet, the two-bedroom master suite alone is larger than some houses.
In an interview in 2008 in the OC Register the architect, Brion Jeannette, described it the estate as being worth the $75 million price tag. Apparently not a sentiment met with much agreement in today's market.
