Browsing the charming boutiques of Corona del Mar. Strolling the sandy beach at Crystal Cove State Park. Joining special friends for summer jazz concerts, the Newport Beach Film Festival, or the surfing thrills of the Newport Beach Pro.
These are only a few of the everyday and seasonal traditions that make The Newport Coast® lifestyle one of the most sought-after in all of Southern California. And, with only one neighborhood offering estate-homes within the gated Newport Coast village of Pacific Ridge®, access to this privileged lifestyle will soon be restricted.
Homes at Pacific Ridge are currently selling in the final neighborhood of Costa Azul by Shea Homes.
“Pacific Ridge is a coastal community with a wonderful difference!” said Suzanne Maddalon, senior director of marketing and research for Irvine Community Development Company LLC, an affiliate of The Irvine Company LLC. “All the area’s coastal pleasures and special events are close at hand, yet this gated village’s tucked-away location makes it feel a world away. You’ll find Pacific Ridge surrounded by picturesque hills, arroyos and canyons. For the fortunate few who make their residential dreams come true at Pacific Ridge, coastal-close living is a truly satisfying experience in this one-of-a-kind setting.”
There’s always something exciting to do only moments away when you live at Pacific Ridge. Residents enjoy beautiful days filled with surfing, body boarding and sailing. Or making plans for the family’s day trip to Catalina, a romantic dinner cruise for two, or simply relaxing under a colorful umbrella in the sand.
Residents of Pacific Ridge benefit from the best in shopping, dining and entertainment, especially with nearby Fashion Island® and Laguna Beach only a short drive away.
“Other popular destinations throughout the year include the Newport Beach Public Library for children’s story time,” said Maddalon. “And, also the Regency Lido Theatre is a hot spot to catch the newest art-house movie.”
Pacific Ridge accesses several scenic walking and bicycling trails that lead to popular coastal destinations, including the 3.5 miles of public beach at Crystal Cove State Park, the protected open space of Los Trancos, Muddy and Deer canyons, and Laguna Coast Wilderness Park.
Zip on down Pacific Coast Highway or the 73 toll road to the coastal cities of South Orange County. Laguna Beach is world-renowned for its trendy shops, charming bistros, diverse art galleries, and the vibrant scene at Main Beach. Further south are the historic Mission San Juan Capistrano and the eclectic shops and restaurants of Dana Point Harbor.
