Pentridge Cove – A Condominium Complex in South Coast Metro Area
Pentridge Cove is one of the largest condominium complexes in the South Coast Metro area, and has one of the nicest interior landscaping features for condos in the city. It was built in 1980, and the architect who built this community won an award for overall design.

I and II
No, it’s not a reference to the Bob Marley song I and I :), Pentridge Cove is broken into two groups, Pentridge Cove I and Pentridge Cove II. The first group of condominiums, Pentridge Cove I, is the group that is located closer to Baker Street and currently has a green colored siding.
Pentridge Cove II is located to the rear of the complex and currently has the tan colored siding.
There are only two floor plans in the Pentridge Cove Community- a one bedroom of approximately 864 square feet and a two bedroom of approximately 1100 square feet.
You might get a little tropical if you live here – All of the streets in each of the complexes are named after Bays. Pentridge Cove I have the street names of Langs Bay, Croyden Bay, Grayling Bay, and Elmira Bay.
Pentridge Cove II have the street names of Wingate Bay,Loysburg Bay,and Schenley Bay.
There are a lot of great features in the Pentridge Cove Community condos. The most interesting feature are all of the waterfalls and streams that wind through center of each complex. There are large boulders, native field grasses, and even koi that can be found in the river systems. It makes the most wonderful bubbling sound if you are out sitting on your balcony. Most of the condos here have large decks or patios as well. There are lots of tall pine trees that also create a lot of shady area for the residents here. Each group of condos also have pools and spas for their residents to enjoy.
It might seem trivial to you, but each of the units in Pentridge Cove Community have a two car garage. Even the one bedroom units!! If you look in other areas of Orange County it can be very, very hard to find a condo with a two car garage. Now, some units do come with split garages, so you might have a single garage under you and then another garage space across the way. Just depends on the unit.
The floor plans are really unique, multi-tiered living plans that divide living space in really great ways. The Pentridge Cove Community one bedrooms have taller steps that separate the living room from the kitchen, dining and bedrooms. The two bedrooms also break up space in the same way. If you have a penthouse unit (and there are lots of them in the complex), then you can really enjoy the cathedral vaulted ceilings in the units. It makes such a huge difference to have the vaulted ceilings because they make the unit feel so much more spacious and also have high windows to let in additional light.
Oh! The dreaded dues! Currently the Pentridge Cove Community association dues are $360 . This does include all water for the condo, as the association pays for it. The is no gas for the community, so that limits your utility bill as well. There are NO leased land fees or additional Mello Roos taxes.
It should never be understated how easy it is to live here at the Pentridge Cove Community, so close to major freeways (less than a 1/2 mile to 73 and 405 freeways) and all of the world class entertainment that South Coast Plaza and the Performing Arts Centers have to offer. You can even walk locally to the super hip Lab and the Camp district of shops and eateries, which are some of the best in the city.
