Bayshores is a famous waterfront community in the heart of Newport Beach. The estates of this neighborhood jewel the edges of Bayshores with glistening postcard views. Formerly home to John Wayne, the 24-hour guard gated community positioned in the Lower Newport Bay area of Newport Beach in a highly desirable west-facing location on the harbor. The Bayshores enclave offers 249 luxury homes situated on the turning basin of the beautiful Newport Beach Harbor in Newport Beach, California. Of the 249 luxury homes, 33 are bay front properties with expansive water views. Many of the bay front properties offer private boat docks to accommodate vessels of various sizes.
Bayshores real estate is intersected by Pacific Coast Highway and Dover Street. The private winding pathways are lined with mature trees and framed by glistening bay views. Some of the original cottages were built as early as the 1940s and maintain a charming cottage appeal that brings a pop of character to the community. Many properties have been re-built or remodeled into luxurious beach homes with an array of architectural inspirations. Each home is unique in character, however a popular theme is traditional beach cottage, Cape Cod and warm Mediterranean influences. The home sizes range from 2,000 square foot cottages to 9,000 square foot grandiose estates.
Bayshores real estate offers the benefits of island-living without compromising any ease of access. With two private beaches behind its gates, Bayshores creates an exclusive and serene lifestyle for its homeowners to enjoy year round. Bayshores also offers a yacht marina, beach volleyball, a guest boat dock, and children’s play park. Bayshores is a waterfront community rather than an island or peninsula, so its ease of access is highly desirable.
If sailing or yachting excites you, look no further, as Bayshores is positioned in an ideal location within the Newport Harbor turning basin for ease of access to the best activities and establishments. A typical Bayshores water scene includes electric boats, yachts of all sizes, sailing boats, racing boats, paddle boarding, kayaking, and more. If you prefer the shopping scene, Fashion Island is just minutes down the coastline, with Corona Del Mar and Balboa Peninsula on either side in close proximity. The Bayshores community is also just a 10-minute drive to South Coast Plaza, which is an upscale luxury shopping center and deemed the largest mall in California.
