About The Westside Costa Mesa Area
Westside Costa Mesa has become a broader name for the area just to the north of our neighbor Newport Beach and the western most part of Costa Mesa real estate. While the name has gotten confused by some to mean many parts of Costa Mesa real estate, this area of the Westside was the area of Costa Mesa that had many of the original first homes built in the 1940’s and 1950’s along with it’s neighbor Newport Beach.
Actually, much of this area was originally zoned for industrial use and much of the area today west of 19th street still contains many industry buildings and company locations. The City of Costa Mesa has a redevelopment plan for this area that has a broad scope to revitalize this area and add new housing and live/work concepts which would be a boon to this area.
Aside from the industrial area of the Westside, there are lots of wonderful neighborhoods, town homes and residential areas. The Freedom homes and the Canyon Park area are older and very charming areas with lots of tall trees and quiet streets. The town homes and condos along Pacific Avenue have glorious views of the Pacific Ocean and into Huntington Beach because of the height of the bluffs that they are perched upon.
The official location for Costa Mesa real estate is the area that borders the general area in the north to Wilson Blvd (there are a couple streets just north of Wilson that are also included), the area to the east that is bordered by the 55 Freeway and Newport Blvd., and to the south by the boundary of Newport Beach itself. The western most border of this area is also bound by the Santa Ana River Trail like the Mesa Verde Community is to the north.

Westside Costa Mesa has some amazing parkland in this area of Costa Mesa real estate. The Talbert Regional Nature Preserve is well worth a long walk through on a fall day, it’s a gorgeous example of nature here in this part of the world. Additionally,
