Pacific Ridge: One of the Last Opportunities to Buy on the Newport Coast

The opportunity to own a luxurious estate along the spectacular Newport Coast® is nearing its conclusion. Come visit Cypress by Taylor Woodrow Homes and Costa Azul by Shea Homes today in the gated village of Pacific Ridge® and discover the hidden treasure within these final two neighborhoods!

“It isn’t often that you find close-to-the-coast elegance to compare with Pacific Ridge,” said Suzanne Maddalon, senior director of marketing and research for Irvine Community Development Company LLC, an affiliate of The Irvine Company LLC. “These final two neighborhoods offer an incredible combination of architectural splendor and lifestyle convenience, enhanced by the graceful flow between their homes’ interior and exterior spaces. Truly, this is where Southern California’s indoor/outdoor living style is at its very best.”

Enriched by the undefined boundaries that allow interior and exterior spaces to merge gracefully and beautifully together, the luxurious estate residences of Pacific Ridge turn every day into a special day while elevating entertaining into an art form. Both indoors and outdoors, each space is a focal point for its own style of entertaining while also serving as a passageway into another prime entertainment area – all set against the breathtaking backdrop of the coastal hills. Just picture all the possibilities:

Greet your afternoon guests in the grand entry courtyard with a refreshing glass of lemonade and guide them through the formal living room and lush atrium courtyard onto the shaded loggia for a casual alfresco lunch.

Treat evening visitors to fireside hors d’oeuvres in the great room, where refreshing sea breezes slip in through the open French doors. Then move out onto the loggia for an elegant formal dinner as the last traces of pink disappear from the coastal sky.

When the occasion calls for it, or if there’s an impromptu change of plans, entertaining at Pacific Ridge can shift to the magnificent Pacific Ridge Recreation Center, located just down the pathway from home. This top-of-the-world facility’s poolside patio features barbecue grills and dining areas showcased by a large outdoor fireplace, ideal for family-oriented cookouts adjacent to the junior Olympic-sized pool, wading pool, spa, and expansive lounge areas.

As residents of The Irvine Ranch®, Pacific Ridge homeowners also plan their entertaining around outdoor activities that take advantage of the incredible network of trails accessible nearly right outside their front doors. A sunny Saturday morning is the ideal time to join friends for a hike exploring the surrounding canyons and arroyos or a bicycle ride to Crystal Cove State Beach.

Added Maddalon: “With Spring just around the corner, imagine all the great entertaining to be done in these grandly designed estate residences with their incredible indoor/outdoor flow. Once they experience Pacific Ridge, many families can’t imagine living or entertaining anywhere else!”

One of the last communities to be created on the scenic Newport Coast, Pacific Ridge is a pleasure to come home to every day with its elevated location above the ocean and the protected open spaces of Los Trancos and Muddy Canyons. The setting is both invigorating and tranquil, with salty sea breezes whispering the promise of numerous coastal activities only moments away. Pacific Ridge residents enjoy 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 Crystal Cove Promenade™ only a short drive away.

“Pacific Ridge occupies an incomparable setting within arm’s reach of coastal amenities and all the essentials for today’s preferred Southern California lifestyle,” said Maddalon. “What a wonderful place to achieve your dream of coastal-oriented estate living.”

Planned to include 328 estate residences in an intimate village environment, Pacific Ridge is nestled behind a gated entry at the end of a winding road. Throughout the community, residents enjoy the grandeur of olive and pepper trees, cascading oaks and sycamores, and the delicate beauty of lavender, sage and rosemary. Also part of the village scene is a 10-acre community park designed with several ball fields to accommodate active sports.
