The Tides, Seacrest and Nautilus: The Jewels of Crystal Cove

For those who dream of the ultimate upscale lifestyle in an extraordinary coastal setting, Crystal Cove now offers three breathtaking estate-home collections crowning the hills of the prestigious Newport Coast®. Each exhibiting singular style and architectural majesty, The Tides, Seacrest and Nautilus truly are the jewels of Crystal Cove!

“Life doesn’t get any better than this!” said Suzanne Maddalon, senior director of marketing and research for Irvine Community Development Company LLC, an affiliate of The Irvine Company LLC. “Crystal Cove is a seaside sanctuary renowned for its steps-from-the-sand location and for offering some of Southern California’s most luxurious estates and custom residences. The Tides, Seacrest and Nautilus take this once-in-a-lifetime setting and make it uniquely their own.”

The Tides by Standard Pacific Homes is the newest of Crystal Cove’s estate enclaves. This limited edition of only 30 estate residences offers three grandly proportioned multi-level floorplans designed by three different celebrated architects:

• Residence One, designed by Bassenian/Lagoni Architects to live like a single-level home, is a Tuscan-style estate inspired by the work of Palm Beach estate architect Marion Sims Wyeth.

• Residence Two, designed by R. Douglas Mansfield Architect, Inc., is a Provençal-style estate fashioned after the famed St. Paul de Vence Auberge on the French Riviera.

• Residence Three, designed by JZMK Partners, is a Santa Barbara-style residence that pays homage to the illustrious Casa de la Condesa Lebrija in Seville.

Offered only at The Tides, every plan is available with a subterranean level adjacent to a sunken courtyard, adding at least 1,341 square feet of living space (varies per plan) including a wine cellar. In Residence Two, the subterranean level also has a “collector’s garage,” spanning approximately 2,945 square feet.

All three sumptuously furnished model homes are now open at The Tides, showcasing home interiors sized from approximately 6,675 to 7,532 square feet of living space and offering four to six bedrooms and up to seven baths. Versatile areas such as a game room, entertainment room, studio, home office, library, bonus room, and golf storage area are featured per plan.

The Tides prices start from the $7 millions. To register on the interest list for The Tides, call (949) 715-0640 or visit

Like The Tides, SeaCrest by Laing Luxury Homes benefits from the residential design expertise of three different architects: Ade Collie at EBTA Architects, Bob White at Ritner Architectural Group and Robert Hidey of Robert Hidey Architects. This luxurious enclave’s single-level and two-story estate floorplans – two with charming tower elements – reflect the timeless beauty of Spanish Colonial, Tuscan Farmhouse, Santa Barbara, and Provence styles.

SeaCrest home interiors range from approximately 5,517 to 7,678 square feet, available with three to eight bedrooms and up to eight and one-half baths. Each home is ideally suited to Southern California’s casually elegant indoor/outdoor living style, enriched by open-air living spaces such as vast courtyards, rooftop terraces and sheltered loggias. Home interiors incorporate such flexible areas per plan as a media room, gym, library, office, second master bedroom suite, teen room, or optional caterer’s kitchen.

Also by Laing Luxury Homes, Nautilus at Crystal Cove offers one single-level and three two-story floorplans sized from approximately 3,182 to 4,102 square feet. The various plans offer four bedrooms and four and one-half baths, along with such highly desirable areas as a bonus room, large master retreat, den, library, or tech room.
