The Urban Suburban Oceanfront Neighborhood
Neighborhood in a Nutshell
Homes in Irvine Terrace are perfectly tiered up a coastal hill from Bayside Drive to Pacific Coast Highway for the perfect elevation. These homes often showcase Balboa Island views, night-light views, Catalina Island views and ocean views all wrapped into one personal “window”.

It is common to see lush landscaping near the front entrances of each of these homes and a unique botanical interpretation of each owner’s curb appeal. The backyards of the homes in Irvine Terrace are the primary focal point where owners enjoy sit-down views and hilltop privacy. Many homeowners have remodeled their back yards to maximize the outdoor living environment captured throughout Irvine Terrace.
