In Newport Coast, a colossal mansion overlooking the ocean just sold for a whopping $61 million — shattering the all-time price record in Orange County.
It’s the most ever paid for a home in Orange County by a decent margin, beating out a two-home compound above Newport Harbor that traded hands for $55 million in 2017.
