Luxury Homes: We all know Orange County, California, is ranked as one of the premier communities to reside in, especially along the shoreline of the Pacific Ocean and the city of Corona del Mar. It's a world-class destination, right? But is it the right time for a new high to be reached, as Frank Pritts III, founder of the software company Attachmate Corp, has put his home on the market for $75 million?

The Portabello is an ultramodern home located on three adjoined tract lots situated on the bluffs above a sandy beach that features eight bedrooms sharing ten bathrooms, a bowling alley, a vintage movie theater, high-tech electronics, a gym, and a wine cellar secured by a steel vault door. The curving structure, which bends up and over and around like a sand dune, is surrounded by three pools, two spas, and a cafe and a personal auto museum. All of this is located on slightly less than an acre of land. It may be ranked second to the Donald's $125-million asking price for Maison de L'Amitie in Palm Beach, Florida, but the views from the Brighton Drive home, which was built in 1998, is worth an easy $20 million alone.

It is offered through the McMonigle Group, and valued on replacement costs of about $1,500 per square foot.
