Robert Barnes built the residence after retiring from the company, which he turned into a top cosmetics brand over a quarter century, according to The New York Times. On a recent tour of the home, John Barnes pointed out photos of his late father and Estée Lauder in one hallway of the house.
Between the bluff-side panorama of the Pacific – part of a 270-degree expanse – and a swimming pool and spa in the courtyard, the Dana Point home offers plenty of water views.
