Costa Azul at Pacific Ridge: Newport Coast Living Refined!

Set amidst the picturesque rolling hills of Newport Coast®, comfortably removed from the beach-scene hustle and bustle, COSTA AZUL by Shea Homes represents the final opportunity to own a new estate residence in the gated hilltop enclave of Pacific Ridge®.

True to its California Riviera location, Costa Azul is a masterful blend of European architectural traditions and today’s most luxurious lifestyle appointments. Home exteriors reflect the rustic design grandeur of Tuscany, Provence and Barcelona, highlighted by expansive open-air spaces that invite residents to enjoy a truly inspired indoor/outdoor living style, offering coastal living, refined.

Prices start from the low $3 millions for Costa Azul’s stunning one- and two-story estate residences. Be sure to ask about Shea Homes Customer Choice, a menu of money saving items designed to make your home purchase easier than ever imagined. The sumptuously detailed interiors range from approximately 3,627 to 4,889 square feet, offering five to seven bedrooms and up to seven and one-half baths. Among the versatile areas either included or offered as an option in the various plans are private guest suites, offices, studios, libraries, game rooms, pool cabanas, and garage work areas.

Sunny courtyards, sheltered loggias and inviting sundecks featured per plan beckon residents and their guests outdoors to take in all the delights of Pacific Ridge, where coastal breezes and the scent of wild sage are in the air.

“With Spring upon us and summer around the corner, Pacific Ridge is the perfect places to be because of its natural landscapes, incredible clubhouse and other recreational amenities, its architectural splendor and lifestyle luxury,” said Suzanne Maddalon, senior director of marketing and research for Irvine Community Development Company LLC, an affiliate of The Irvine Company LLC. “Don’t miss this opportunity to enjoy a new home in this tucked-away location along the prestigious Newport Coast.”

The Costa Azul residences exhibit fine detailing and artisan-quality materials throughout, highlighted by maple stair systems with wrought iron balusters, oversized wood-burning fireplaces with precast surrounds, six-inch baseboards, cased windows, solid-core interior doors with raised-panel design, and a customized selection of interior paint color schemes. Pre-wiring for high-speed communications, re-circulating hot water systems, and 75-gallon gas water heaters are among the homes’ numerous amenities dedicated to lifestyle convenience and energy savings.

All bedroom and bath areas are sumptuously appointed, including Kohler® fixtures and mirrored wardrobe doors (dual-sided mirrored doors in master suites).

As the warm heart of every Costa Azul home, the gourmet kitchen is both a beautifully designed work center and a gracious gathering place. Kitchen appointments include exquisite European-style cabinetry, slab granite countertops, a Thermador Professional stainless steel appliance package, and a 48-inch Sub-Zero refrigerator. A large island counter, huge walk-in pantry and butler’s pantry (per plan) add to the mealtime and entertaining convenience.

In the intimate, one-of-a-kind village of Pacific Ridge, life is relaxed and refined. All the coastal pleasures are within easy reach, from sailing and surfing to quiet strolls in the sand. The village accesses several scenic walking and bicycling trails leading to popular coastal destinations, such as the 3.5 miles of public beach at Crystal Cove State Park, the protected open space of Los Trancos, Muddy and Deer canyons, and the Laguna Coast Wilderness Park.

Just a quick drive along nearby Pacific Coast Highway leads to the charming restaurants and boutiques of Corona del Mar to the north and the vibrant Main Beach scene, charming galleries and bistros of Laguna Beach to the south. Great shopping and dining also are available in the open-air settings of Crystal Cove Promenade™ and Fashion Island®.

Pacific Ridge boasts its own hilltop Recreation Center, a home-away-from-home retreat where residents can unwind and socialize. Amenities include a Junior Olympic-sized swimming pool, children’s wading pool, relaxing spa, and outdoor dining area with barbecue grills and an expansive fireplace.

Reminiscent of a romantic Tuscan village perched atop a scenic ridge, Pacific Ridge combines magnificent architecture and natural beauty in perfect harmony. The homes are built against a splendid backdrop of coastal hills, arroyos, canyons, and the distant blue of the ocean.

When completed, Pacific Ridge is planned to encompass a total of 328 estate residences nestled along winding streets that rise gently into the hills. The village’s scenic landscapes include clusters of olive and pepper trees, cascading oaks and sycamores, and the delicate beauty and fragrance of lavender, sage and rosemary. A proposed 10-acre community park will provide several ball fields for active sports.
