On Balboa’s Peninsula Point

I like shingled houses at the beach.

While riding around on my rented beach cruiser, I came across this one that intrigued me.

Fliers in flier boxes are not often offered in this part of the world, so I took a photo of the address in order to remember it so I could look up the deets when I got back to my computer:

2033 Miramar Drive, Newport Beach, California. Offered at $2,299,000. Three bedrooms, three baths. Two car garage. 2100 square foot lot. Smack dab in the sweetest neighborhood in all of Newport Beach, just steps to the Wedge and the big wide sandy beach and the Pacific Ocean. For more photos, click here. Enchanting!


And though it has a two million dollar price tag, this is a modest home on the Peninsula, compared to many of its neighbors. For instance, here’s the most expensive house currently for sale in the Peninsula Point neighborhood:

1220 West Bay Avenue, Newport Beach. Offered at $14,900. Newport Harbor waterfront. Four bedrooms, seven bathrooms. 5000 interior square feet on a 10,900 square foot lot. Five car garage. Pier for three boats. Wow. For more photos, click here.



Another shingled cottage that stopped me in my tracks on the Balboa Peninsula earlier this week. Not for sale, but really quite striking.
