It’s no secret to Southern Californians that Newport Beach—all of Orange County, really—is an enclave of fairly wealthy people. That fact seems ironic considering that Orange County filed for bankruptcy in 1994, taking two years to get its affairs back in order. Nonetheless, all one has to do is walk through some Newport Beach neighborhoods to see that it’s not your average city. Along with many large, magnificent, and beautiful homes….

Some of them even decorate their mailboxes. Don’t want any ugly black or gray things hanging on fences or walls.
I don’t have access to public real estate records for Orange County like I do San Diego County, so I couldn’t check addresses to determine which was the biggest house I saw. However, I’m pretty sure this one was at or near the top:
At first I thought it was a beach hotel since the beach is pretty much where I was standing to take the picture. However, I walked around it several times and came to the conclusion that it was, indeed, a single family home.
