Newport Beach condos come in all shapes and views depending on what part of Newport Beach you are looking to call home. Most condo buyers moving in to the Newport Beach area want some kind of a view. Views can vary from ocean to water views to views of the canyon and hills. If you are in the market for a water view condo then there are a few key areas you should start your search. Of course, budget always comes into play as price ranges can vary a lot and currently range from $300,000 to $3 million dollars.
1) Start your search around the Balboa Peninsula area. Condos in this area are abundant and if you can find the ideal condo along the Newport Bay then the views will be spectacular. The Peninsula is a mixture of condos, homes and multi-unit buildings and can be very expensive since this is a narrow strip of land between the bay and Pacific Ocean. You will want condos facing the bay that have views of the waterfront communities in the bay like Lido Isle, Harbor & Balboa Island.
2) For those on a budge then the condos surrounding the Hoag Hospital in Newport Heights may be best suite for you. Condos like Newport Beach and Villa Balboa will be your best bet. Ask your realtor to show you condos on the front row as they always have the best views of the water. This truly is a great location and a great value considering you can still buy a water view condo in the $300,000 range!
3) For those looking more for a luxury single family home feel then you should consider the gated community of Harbor Ridge Estates. These luxury townhomes (condos) are adjoined on one side but have the look and feel of a traditional single family home. The view from Harbor Ridge Estates are incredible and you get the bonus on great city light views as well. Prices in Harbor Ridge Estates will be in the $1 to $2 million dollar range depending on the view and size of the condo.
