There is nothing wrong with owning a Fabergé egg or two. Sure, some can be rather garish but overall they aren’t bad eggs. That being said, we don’t recommend attempting to live inside one, which is exactly what the owners of the lurid house in California seem to have attempted.
And you thought Joan River’s house was over the top. By the way, this loony bin was first spotted by Curbed.
Located in Newport Beach, Calif., and fronting the 18th tee of the exclusive Big Canyon golf course, the house is 14,500 square feet of vertigo-inducing gilded madness.
And the fact that it is actually named Villa Fabergé means that the owners (whoever they are) knew exactly what they were doing. Tsk, tsk.
The house features a grand two-story foyer, a wine cellar & tasting lounge, full catering kitchen and a “hidden” media room — whatever that means.
Outside there are gardens, reflecting pools, fountains and statuary that “compliment your private pool and spa,” according to the Christie’s International Real Estate listing.
It will be interesting to see who is willing to cough up $9.8 million for this whirlwind of gaudy madness. Maybe Liberace’s ghost?
