Newport Terrace – A Little Oasis
Newport Terrace is a condominium association located in an area that many might consider to be Costa Mesa. However, it is a small oasis of Newport Beach and has much to offer for a very reasonable price.
Located at the end of 19th Street, there are 281 homes in Newport Terrace, which is located near the beach and just above the Talbert Nature Preserve. This is a small enclave which some don’t realize is there as the only reason to travel all the way to the end of 19th Street is to reach Newport Terrace.
Originally built in the 1970’s these condos started at approximately $25,000. Currently they are selling from the high $200,000’s to the mid $300,000’s, a very reasonable price for a Newport Beach address.
When my sister and I lived in Newport Terrace as children, we enjoyed playing in the Nature Preserve, which we all called the “gully.” In addition to being located close to the beach and the Nature Preserve, there is a lovely pool area, which in addition to the pool, features a jacuzzi, a wading pool and a new basketball area. If you walk up the hill behind the pool area, there is even a horseshoe pit.
Newport Terrace offers a great amenity in the form of all of the open space and green areas that were incorporated in to the design of the community, perhaps inspired by the Nature Preserve above which it sits.
One of the best things offered to those who live in Newport Terrace is a home in Newport Beach for far less than in other areas of the city.
Located just a few blocks from Harbor Boulevard, Triangle Square and 17th Street, Newport Terrace offers close proximity to shopping and restaurants as well as the beach the freeway and Hoag Hospital.
