With its beautiful natural setting, family-friendly neighborhoods, thriving economy, and easy access to major transportation routes, the city of Costa Mesa has become one of Orange County’s leading commercial and cultural centers. What was once a farming community has grown and evolved into a booming suburban edge city and also one of the most sought-after places to live in the area.
Costa Mesa offers a diverse selection of real estate options, which include single-family residences in a variety of architectural styles ranging from cottages to bungalows and ranch-style homes, to country club homes, sprawling estate properties, townhouses and condominiums. If you prefer to build your own custom home, be aware that land and lots ideal for new construction are very limited. Some higher-priced homes are located in neighborhoods with lovely tree-lined streets and provide scenic mountain or ocean views.
The Diego Sepulveda Adobe, also known as the Costa Mesa Estancia, is an adobe structure built during the 1820s as a stopover station for priests who travelled between Mission San Juan Capistrano and Mission San Gabriel. The adobe, which is considered as the second oldest building in Costa Mesa, has been restored to its original look and currently houses a museum operated by the Costa Mesa Historical Society.
