In the early 1950’s, the City of Newport Beach acquired an island of land a quarter mile in size that we now know as Newport Terrace! Surrounded by the City of Costa Mesa, this land with stunning ocean views essentially landlocked the City, thus allowing Newport Beach
to keep its coastline uninterrupted. The beauty of Newport Terrace is not just the Newport Beach address but rather its unique and gorgeous tree-filled landscape, park and nature surroundings.
Surrounded by 180 acres of Talbert Nature Preserve, Talbert Regional Park, Sheep Hills and the additional 35 acres of Canyon Park, you have options for a variety of picturesque urban hiking trails. Some trails leading you out to the beach along the Banning Channel Bikeway and Santa Ana River trail to the Santa Ana River mouth, with white sandy Newport Beach on one side and Huntington Beach on the other. Not to be forgotten 2.5 acre Marina View Park was named after a proposed marina project. While the marina was never built, the name on the park remained unchanged.
Newport Terrace grew into a sleepy complex that once again shines bright and has matured into an amazing, modern residential condominium community. Completed in 2014 was a stunning multi-year, multi-million dollar remodel to Newport Terrace. Lush landscaping, enhanced lighting and walkways, new roofs, chimneys, front doors, exterior siding,stucco and wood refinishing. The private recreation area including pool, spa, and wading pool have been modernized along with the restrooms, lovely built in BBQs, lounge and picnic areas. There is also a new sports court with perimeter seating, great for watching your kids, friends, or having a pick-up game.
Most Southern Californians have two top priorities when searching for Real Estate locations. We want easy access to the beach and to the freeways. What if you had that, AND hiking trails and parks? Plus, you could ride your bike or drive to markets, schools, culture and restaurants? Newport Terrace truly has it ALL!
