Lido Isle - Newport Real Estate & Homes for Sale in California
Formed from a slip of man-made land set in Newport Bay, Lido Isle is surrounded by the city of Newport Beach which can be easily accessed by way of a short bridge. Created from sandbar and mudflat, this bedroom community of about 1,800 people is strictly residential. With no commercial facilities, Lido Isle is a beachfront community in Orange County that presents a hideaway from the hubbub of the city. As one of the first master-planned communities in California, Lido Isle was meant to resemble a European resort, naming the streets after Mediterranean cities that include Barcelona, Ithaca and Nice.
The social hub of the community is the Lido Isle Club House, hosting many clubs and organizations for the active populace, including the Lido Isle Yacht Club. Less than half a mile away, a drive over the bridge provides access to Newport Beach's shops, restaurants, schools and surfing beaches. With just one road off the isle, the community provides a safe neighborhood for children and tranquil walking paths for this luxury neighborhood.
Most homes are built in Mediterranean Revival, Cape Cod, bungalow or contemporary architectural styles, with the finest lots offering water frontage and boat docks. Palm trees and boats highlight the horizon, lazily mooring in this bedroom community. Lido Isle provides the opportunity to live the breezy Southern California lifestyle, while experiencing family-friendly stability and quality of a close-knit, active community.
