Some of the most expensive estates in Newport Coast, California are found in the community of Pelican Heights. Formerly known as Montecito, this area is famous for its exclusive real estate that overlooks spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean coastline, steep canyons, and Catalina Island and well as the sparkling city lights.
Pelican Heights is a gated community of less than 100 estates. These homes reflect a classic Mediterranean architectural style and range in size from 4,500 to 7,500 square feet. Typically there are four to seven bedrooms and the main floor plan is slightly varied for individual uniqueness.
Privacy, luxury, and location are prime here with Vista Luci Street at the highest elevation. Although many estates have their own pools, all homeowners have access to the community swimming pool as well as tennis courts and a park. The Newport Mesa Unified School District offers highly ranked facilities like Newport Coast Elementary School, Corona Del Mar High School, and Abraham Lincoln Elementary.
Pelican Heights is across from the Pelican Crest neighborhood and just a short drive from Crystal Cove State Beach. Down the curvy road from this community is The Resort at Pelican Hill where members can play on two championship 18-hole golf courses that were designed by Tom Fazio. Top golf instructors are available and the clubhouse has separate men’s and women’s lounges. Members can also treat themselves to the Pelican Hill Spa and Balanced Wellness Center with a massage or facial in one of 22 treatment rooms. And personal trainers are on hand at the club’s fitness center. This resort sits on 500 acres that overlook the Pacific Ocean.
There is also plenty of world-class shopping nearby as well as upscale dining. Fashion Island and Crystal Cove Promenade are both very popular with a large variety of boutiques and restaurants.
