Upper Birds Streets in Mesa Verde
The Upper Bird Streets in Mesa Verde is one of Mesa Verde’s nicest neighborhoods, and also one of it’s last built tracts. It is a group of homes that is inside of Adams Drive to the North, Placentia Ave to the West, and bordered largely by Fairview Park and the Costa Mesa Country Club. It is a smaller section of the larger Mesa Verde neighborhood commonly called the “Upper Birds” or the “Upper Bird Streets” because all the street names are named after birds. It is also typically the most expensive tract of homes in the Mesa Verde area.
Upper Birds Streets in Mesa Verde
Like other parts of the Mesa Verde neighborhood The Lower Bird Streets, most of the streets in this group of homes are named after birds- Hummingbird, Tanager, Oriole, Buntin, Vireo, Canary, Kinglet, Starbird, Cardinal, Waxwing, Redwing, and Bluebird just to name a few. There are entries into this neighborhood from Golf Course Drive, and Placentia Avenue.
The Upper Birds Streets in Mesa Verde has a wonderful feel. In the center is Tanager Park, which is one of the City of Costa Mesa’s finest parks. Most of the builders in this neighborhood built two story homes. There are a handful of streets which do have single story models, but the majority of the homes here are larger than 2500 square feet and two story homes. There are a few Cul-de-sacs in this neighborhood, and there are lots of mature trees, especially around Tanager Park.
The homes are built with a minimum of 4 bedrooms, and lots of the models will have 5 bedroom plans (sometimes more). There is a single story plan, but everyone loves the Buccola built two story floor plans. Starbird Drive was one of the last built out streets in the late 1970’s, and featured custom floor plans not found elsewhere in Costa Mesa or Orange County. Some of the floor plans are larger than 3500 square feet. The Upper Birds Streets in Mesa Verde has a great neighborhood feel, surrounded by park, and it being adjacent to Costa Mesa country club, with excellent golf at an affordable price, is amazing. There is easy access to the top of Fairview Park with a custom staircase, which leads to the walking trails through the park and a great place to find an incredible Costa Mesa sunset. Several of the homes on Tanager Drive do back to the Costa Mesa Country Club golf course as well, and have sights of the Los Lagos Course’s 9th hole. There are other golf course locations in Costa Mesa as well.
The local elementary is Adams Elementary which is good walk from any part of this neighborhood, or better by bicycle. A car ride to the school is less than 2 minutes if you don’t hit the light on Adams. The Junior HS would be Tewinkle, and the High School would be Estancia HS. Of course, other options exist within the Newport Mesa School District and other schools outside of the district.
Tanager park is the park that is centrally located within the Upper Birds Streets in Mesa Verde, and it is a small wonderful park. It has a great play structure for kids, lots of grass, some older shady pine trees, and basketball and sand volleyball courts. It’s a wonderful gather spot for families and kids events.
