Costa Mesa house description


This affordable charming up-dated single story home is in a great location! Beautiful laminate flooring throughout. Located on a desirable quiet cul-de-sac. Close to many attractions - Newport Beach, South Coast Plaza, John Wayne Airport, and Fashion Island are just minutes away. Also located close to many stores, restaurants and Disneyland (15 minutes away). We are within 5 minutes or less to 3 freeways (without all the freeway noise) for all your driving needs.

The master bedroom is not only appealing to the eye, but is also filled with high-end comfort - newer Memory Works mattress queen size bed, a 32” LED TV, and luxurious french doors. The well appointed master bath has dual sinks, granite counter top, and a spacious shower.

The first guest bedroom has an exotic leopard print design with a full size bed and cocoa colored wicker furniture.

The second guest bedroom has a beautiful forest mural with a newer twin mattress, an office desk and WIFI.

The guest bathroom is also filled with elegant features - a Baine Ultra Air Bath jetted tub with mood enhancing lights, a pedestal sink, and a large rain head shower. The design of the bathroom will make you feel as though you are staying at the Ritz-Carlton.

The up-dated kitchen has stainless steel appliances, newer LG built-in microwave, newer LG dishwasher, built in ice-maker and water in refrigerator door, Silestone counter tops and handsome french doors opening to the backyard with a picturesque view of the Koi pond.

The great room is inviting with a 48' LCD TV, a Bose Sound System, reclining leather sofa and chair, and leather chair and ottoman. The homey gas fireplace has sparkling blue and taupe crushed glass.

Finally, the backyard has many stylish, yet soothing features. Relax by the Koi pond filled with many different colours of Koi, and calming waterfall. The gorgeous outdoor living area contains a lighted gazebo, richly-coloured sectional and ottoman. There is also a tranquil newer dining area that overlooks the pond and comfortably seats 6. You can eat or play old fashioned board games in this cozy setting or feel free to read one our books or magazines that we have provided. In the evening, enjoy the complementing lights enhancing the pond and setting the mood.

Feel free to pick from our fresh organic herb garden, lemon tree, and seasonal garden.

The house sleeps 5 comfortably, and the 6th person could sleep on an elevated air bed. No more than 6 please.

NOTE: The outdoor living room will be removed from November lst to April due to inclement weather. The outdoor dining area will be moved to the gazebo. There will be a fire pit and chairs for a cozy evening still having the great views and the serene sounds of the Koi pond available from November to April.

                  Year Purchased: 1998

                  About the owner: We have lived in the Costa Mesa area for many years. We picked Costa Mesa to live in because it is just far enough from the beach crowd, but still close enough to bike to the beach. We especially enjoy this quiet friendly street. This home has designer touches by Lamar, who is an interior designer. Since this is our primary residence, please treat our home with respect and love it like you would your own. We do not reside on the property when it is rented. Lamar likes to ride his racing bicycle to and cruise the beach. Susan likes to garden and pick fresh vegetables and flowers. When we are both home, you will find us relaxing by the pond enjoying a book and the serenity of the pond.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  The home has a big Koi pond with a 3 foot waterfall that creates the sound of rippling water all throughout the home giving the home a tranquil, serene atmosphere. You will not be disappointed.
