Curb Appeal: California Chateau by the Ocean

Inspired by the extraordinary chateaus found throughout France, this home in Newport Coast, Calif., is the picture of warmth and elegance. With panoramic views of the ocean, white water and rolling hills -- not rooftops -- the 6,988-square-foot estate really soaks in the beauty of its surroundings.

Exterior Inspired By Chateaus

The home's style was inspired by French chateaus and so many of the materials were brought over from France. Its unique location allows it to feel off by itself with sweeping views of rolling hills and ocean.
