Newport Bay

Newport Bay Blufftop View in Newport Beach

Newport Bay homes are jewels along the bluffs of Upper Newport Bay. Homes in this area of the Back Bay feature scenic walking, biking, and hiking trails throughout the hills of Newport Beach. Positioned on a bluff overlooking the bay, Newport Bay real estate is conveniently located just minutes to the harbor and major thoroughfares of Newport Beach. Many residents choose homes in Back Bay for their serenity and proximity to the water and the Upper Newport Bay Eco Preserve. This pristine and protected area encompasses much of the Back Bay and is home to Newport’s wildlife. Considered a “critical estuary” habitat, Upper Newport Bay is one of the most pristine remaining estuaries in Southern California.

Newport Bay real estate is a general local’s term for homes surrounding the Back Bay north of Pacific Coast Highway and is comprised of several different community tracts and inlets. The most luxurious of these is Dover Shores. Within this neighborhood, the most expensive and prestigious bay real estate lies in the waterfront homes of Upper Newport Bay. These homes are on Morning Star Lane, Evening Star Lane and North Star Lane. Every one of these waterfront homes has a boat dock with an array of vessel accommodation sizes.

Newport Bay homes lining Galaxy Drive and Polaris Drive are also some of the most luxurious. These bluff homes feature 10,000-15,000 square foot lots on average, allowing each homeowner spacious bay living compared to the surrounding tight quarters of Newport Beach real estate. While these homes may not have boat docks, they are still bluff-front on the water with incredibly serene water and nature preserved views.

Recessed from the hustle and bustle of water activity in Newport Harbor, Newport Bay allows homeowners to enjoy a peaceful view of the water and Upper Newport Bay Regional Park across the channel. Castaways Park is a nearby Newport Bay destination for walking or biking while enjoying glistening views of the water and boats gliding in the distance. An easy drive to Fashion Island, 17th Street, and the Balboa Peninsula ensures homeowners in this area are always close to trendy and upscale entertainment.
