Portabello, meaning “beautiful door,” in Italian could not be a better name for this gorgeous ocean front property.The estate, in Orange County, California, just sold for $34.1 million, according the Wall Street Journal. And $34.1 million is a steal considering the home was on the market a year ago for $75 million.

Frank Pitt, founder of Attachmate, listed The Portabello Estate for $75 million in 2006, took it off the market a year later, and relisted it earlier this year for $49.6 million.
