Racquetball court part of $12M OC home sale

A six-bedroom, 12-bath house just sold in Crystal Cove has many of the features included in most luxury homes, and one that isn’t — an indoor racquetball court.

No word on whether the new owner of 40 Deep Sea is an avid racquetball player. But if he is, his new hilltop house is ideal for tournaments.

A glass wall in the second-level game room of this four-story home overlooks the indoor racquetball court on the floor below, making a perfect observation area.

The 13,500-square-foot house wasn’t even built when it went on the market in April 2008.  After nearly two years, the Crystal Cove home sold last month for $11.8 million, according to Redfin.

An elevator connects the occupants to all four floors — including two subterranean levels. (Check out the hole they dug at right.)

Amenities include a gym, theater, wine cellar and tasting room, sauna, an eight-car garage and game/media room that includes  a juice bar.

Located near the top of the Crystal Cove development, the home features “unimpeded ocean and Catalina views with virtually no rooftops,” according to the MLS.

The “main floor has an unmatched open feel with covered loggias off the great room, family room, breakfast area and kitchen,” the MLS said.

There’s also a separate guest casita and an indoor courtyard.
