Newport Heights residents enjoy the tranquility of living in a luxury neighborhood, the eclectic, artsy vibe, and the convenience of being within 20 minutes of major urban cities such as Costa Mesa and Irvine.
The median price point for homes in Newport Heights hovers in the $1-3 million range, but these spectacular houses, with their beachy locations and magnificent architecture, are more than worth the costs.
