On its southern end is an area called Newport Mesa, a blurred border between the city and Newport Beach.
It pretty much goes without saying… it is well known fact that the South Coast Metro, Mesa Verde, Westside Costa Mesa and Eastside Costa Mesa communities are the most covetable of the beach close community of Costa Mesa. Named after a local farmer/cowboy, the town initially prospered with the sale of its agricultural goods.

With that being said, one of the primary features of this local housing market is that it is so much more than an ideal location – it is a residential living haven for families.
