Spyglass Hill

Spyglass Hill - Corona Del Mar

Spyglass Hill sits on the San Joaquin Reservoir between San Joaquin Road, north of the top of Buck Gully, with spacious homes in comparison to many of its neighboring communities in Newport Beach and Corona Del Mar. Spyglass is famous for its hillside perch offering stunning views of the ocean, harbor, Catalina Island, coastline, nearby islands, sunset and city lights. Spyglass real estate is located in Corona Del Mar and consists of approximately 350 distinctive homes. Custom and semi-custom homes comprise the Spyglass Hill neighborhood with its beautiful weather and fun scenery. Spyglass Hill is appropriately named, as it embodies a telescope-like feel with 180-degree combination views.

Established in 1972 by the Irvine Company as part of the Harbor View Hills village, this neighborhood is composed of single family homes, most of which have either been remodeled or rebuilt since their original inception. The style of homes varies greatly, with contemporary sitting next to Tuscan sitting next to traditional not being unheard of. The home sizes fall between 2,400 square feet and 8,000. Spyglass Hill is managed by a professional community association contributing to the preservation of its beauty and amenities for homeowners. Home prices in Spyglass Hill typically fall between $1,000,000 and $4,000,000, with the average sitting at around $2,000,000.

As part of the Newport-Mesa School District, Spyglass Hill homes are popular for their access to this highly rated district, and with the low number of units available at any given time, this makes competition for them fierce. The nearby Buck Gully Reserve and Spyglass Hill Park make excellent outdoor spaces for family and wildlife lovers. Local beaches include Corona Del Mar State Beach, Crystal Cove Beach and the Newport Beach Balboa Peninsula.
