In the heart of San Juan Capistrano, a legacy unfolds. Perched atop 42 acres of pristine property, the estate - coined Casa Grande - awaits a new heritor. This landmark property boasts unrivaled potential, from its agricultural income to its equine resources to the grandiosity of its residential plans. Casa Grande is a bespoke brand of luxury, 40+ years in the making. Accessed by a private drive through Marbella Country Club, Casa Grande, when completed, will feature a 38,000 sq ft main residence with 360-degree ocean, mountain, and seascape views. The sellers have paved the way with permitted plans for the main residence, guest homes, a barn, stables, and a distillery. The property's equestrian capabilities include stabling for up to 10 horses and direct access to the city's extensive riding trails. With its working avocado farm, citrus grove, and untapped potential for a thriving agave business, Casa Grande presents a unique agricultural opportunity. The booming agave spirits market offers substantial agricultural income with an anticipated yield of 170 tons. While the future residences will fall under Proposition 13, the agribusiness is taxed under the Williamson Act, offering significant tax benefits. In addition to dual access entitlements for the business and residence, the estate benefits from valuable development concessions, streamlining the construction process for the primary residence, guest homes, employee quarters, and recreational facilities. Already built, spanning 21,000+ sq ft, the existing structure consists of 3 apartments, offices, and ample storage/war

Lying on the westerly side of Harbor Island, Newport Harbors most revered and sought-after private island locale, this stately period home has been lovingly kept for nearly one hundred years. Held by generations of one family for nearly as long, this is the proverbial property everyone has been waiting for. Words cannot describe the relaxed feeling one experiences sitting here on the bayside terrace and watching sailboats glide across the harbor from this most scenic location. Towering eucalyptus trees frame the reserved, colonial-style residence that is an understated monument to its era. The home fronts on a large brick terrace that adjoins an expansive green lawn that spans two oversized lots and runs to the waters edge. A private inner courtyard, and expansive mature gardens, lend to the coastal ambiance found here. The original house, built circa 1937, has been preserved and enjoyed, while its authenticity protected.

With the filtered afternoon sun trickling in from above, and the massive trees swaying in the gentle ocean breezes, the setting is truly enchanting.

Their combined one hundred feet of frontage, found on the most desirable island in Newport Harbor, represents the last opportunity of its kind.
