Less than six months after he paid $11.6 million for a large, Mediterranean-themed mansion in an exclusive golf club community, bestselling suspense/horror author Dean Koontz has paid $10.5 million for another Mediterranean-themed mansion in the same neighborhood, and only about a half-mile down the road.

Located in the hills of Irvine, in Southern California’s Orange County, the 12,000 sq. ft. house was built in 2008 and is described in marketing materials as a “one-of-a-kind custom estate” with “the most spectacular views.” Whatever the case, the place is plainly dripping in amenities — there are crystal chandeliers, marble floors quarried in Spain, a home theater and both indoor and outdoor swimming pools.

From the street, the property is meant to evoke a villa on the Italian riviera, with its coral-colored façade partially obscured by mature olive trees. Inside, there’s a starkly white foyer with a soaring staircase, plus a notably extra-big living room with a fireplace and several sets of French doors.

A spacious kitchen has a large center island topped by a unique, vaguely rainbow-colored marble.  There’s also a full slew of restaurant-quality stainless appliances: two SubZero refrigerators, three Wolf ovens, two dishwashers and two microwaves — perfect for an owner who frequently throws dinner parties.
