One of the smaller neighborhoods located near the Back Bay Area of Newport Beach is the Westcliff Grove neighborhood. The community features an approximate 29 homes located off Westcliff Drive on the cul-de-sac streets of Blue Gum Lane and Grove Lane. It was first developed in 1979 when the builder built homes that offer three and four bedroom floor plans. Over the years only a couple of these will typically come on the market for sale often priced in the high $1 million to low $2 million dollar range.
The architectural style of Westcliff Grove homes would be a more traditional style with attached two car garages and large entertaining backyards. Many of the interiors have been upgraded with vaulted ceilings, large gourmet kitchens with center islands and French doors that open out to the backyard. It's not uncommon for for homes in this area to have their own private pools with one and two story floor plans. The location is really ideal and within walking distance to the Back Bay Area and Castaway's trail. Children who live here are inside the boundary of the Mariners Elementary school as well as Newport Harbor high school.
One of the newest listings at 1232 Blue Gum Lane is probably one of the most upgraded homes I have seen in this community. The five bedroom, five bath home features an estimated 6,100 square feet of living space and priced at $3,900,000. It truly captures the indoor/outdoor living with a huge private swimming pool and retractable La Cantina doors that make the inside feel like the outside. The home also features an outdoor kitchen, fire pit and a basketball court.
