Costa Mesa Real Estate Information
Residential real estate in Costa Mesa was developed mostly through the city's growth period in the mid-20th Century. As such, many of the homes for sale in Costa Mesa are single-story bungalows and ranchers in classic California Modern style.
California Modern homes are deceptively simple in their design, with low-pitched roofs, muted colors, and subtle decorative elements in the form of patterned bricks, stone, or exposed roof struts. These homes are excellent for keeping cool airflow through the generally open interiors in the summer, and provide a generous amount of space without exposing windows and walls to too much direct sunlight.
Other styles of home in Costa Mesa are "new traditional" dwellings with exterior shutters, tile roofs, and the odd double-story; and American Craftsman homes, with wide porches, prominent stonework, and an overall sturdy cabin-like appearance.
Some areas in Costa Mesa even have rear alley access, for added convenience.
A number of modern townhome developments have also become available in Costa Mesa, for a fantastic blend of convenience and luxury.
