John McMonigle inside Portabello

If you shell out $75 million for the Portabello Estate, you'll get 30,000 square feet of space, eight bedrooms, 10 and a half baths and spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean from almost every room, John says.

Potential buyers also don't have to worry about finding couches to fit along the curved walls...all the furniture is included with the house. "The furniture in this house has been meticulously designed and made to fit the size and scale of the house," John says "If you pay your $75 million, you just bring your toothbrush and you move right in."

High-tech gadgets also add to the "wow" factor. In one room, glass walls open up to an outdoor Jacuzzi with the press of a button. In the kitchen, you'll find heated countertops, and in the executive office, you'll find leather floors and custom woodwork.

"This is truly a trophy home...it's a landmark," John says. "I think the beauty of this house is the artisanship that was used to embrace nature, but the best compliment that you can give any property is that when you're here, you don't want to leave."
