A beachfront home in Orange County, California is listed for $55 million, according to Compass listing agent Arlen Raubach.
Laubach said the six-bedroom, nearly 9,630-square-foot home is located in the gated community of Dana Point, a wealthy city about halfway between Los Angeles and San Diego. If you get the asking price, the most expensive recorded sale to date would set a record for Dana Point, which was last year’s $33 million deal, he said.
The sellers are Elijah Shapira, co-founder of digital analytics firm Webtrends, and his wife Anne Shapira. Shapira said he used to live in Oregon and vacationed in Dana Point. However, in 2012, after his two children went off to college, he bought the land for $8.6 million and said it was completed around 2018. He did not disclose how much it cost to build, but said it cost about twice as much as originally planned.
