The Dover Shores area is the community that includes Dover Shores, Westcliff, Harbor Highlands and Baycrest.
Located in the Upper Newport Bay area and nestled against the Newport Beach Back Bay Reserve, the community offers a tremendous diversity of homes situated on private beaches that afford residents a true bayfront lifestyle.
Close to the retail centers of South Coast Plaza and Fashion Island, homes in the Dover Shores area can be the cozy cottage or the winding custom estate. Many offer beautiful bay views.
Todd Bousman, a true specialist in the area, says that “while the neighborhood has much to offer in the way of recreational sports – boating, sailing and rowing – it’s also ideal for families with children.” The distinguished and acclaimed Mariner’s Elementary School, he said, “is a huge draw” for prospective homeowners with children.
Another draw, Bousman notes, is “the extensive architectural range” – everything from ranch-, mid-century- and Tudor-style homes to “new remodels in every variety with large parcels on quiet, family-oriented streets.”
Home sizes range from 1,650 to upwards of 6,100 square feet on 7,400- to 12,600-square-foot lots. Properties range in price, Bousman said, from $1.030 to $3.35 million. Just since March of this year, the area has seen 33 properties closed. Currently, 25 are actively listed in the $1.2-$4.3 million range, with 11 houses in escrow.
