The ultimate luxury property trifecta could be summed up this way: views, privacy, and space. Add ocean views to that equation, and you have just described the California version of this trifecta.
These three newly listed properties from the Coldwell Banker Global Luxury program perfectly encapsulate the dream of the Golden State.
46400 Clear Ridge Rd
Big Sur, CA.
Situated on Big Sur’s epic Cooper Point, this private 109-acre property capitalizes on its position between the spectacular beaches of Pfeiffer and Andrew Molera, connecting the two parklands as the sole private property contiguous to both. Among its promises are 360-degree views and untamed white sandy beach, redwood forest, and creeks. A three-bedroom glass masterpiece by legendary Big Sur architect Mickey Muennig seemingly rises out of the landscape with an earth roof. Rounding out the property: a private guest house and a 3-car garage round out the compound along with a spa, wine cellar, see-through fireplace, and three miles of private trails for your hiking enjoyment. The property also offers three separate parcels, which could provide an additional home site for development, such as the forested flat just above the white sand beach.

7 Pelican Vista Drive
Newport Coast, CA.
Another enchanting oceanside oasis awaits in Southern California. Set behind guarded gates of Newport Beach’s Pelican Crest, this Italian villa is poised on an approximately 300-foot deep parcel spanning over 29,800 square feet, affording you the most breathtaking ocean, city, and Newport Harbor views. A gated whimsical garden featuring mature plantings, a soaring columned front entry, and a stunning Tuscan-style fountain introduces the elegant five-bedroom mansion. Exquisitely finished with bespoke details that exude refined grandeur, the interiors reveal multiple rooms for entertaining, including a living room, intimate family room, and a wood-paneled library as five sets of French doors open onto two large loggias with a Formations fireplace mantel. The lower level is dedicated to a subterranean garage, bar servicing a billiards room with wood flooring and limestone walls, a dry sauna, and a theater. The primary suite occupies a separate wing of the second level with a private covered terrace overlooking the blue water vistas, a large walk-in closet, and a spa-like bath outfitted in Calacatta marble.
