Life Styles, Costa Mesa Real Estate Analysis

The Life Styles gated community was built in the late 1990s and consists of about 80 homes. Featuring a very convenient location, these homes are just minutes from South Coast Plaza, Segerstrom Center for the Arts, John Wayne Airport, the Chargers training center, Irvine, and the Anti Mall. Access to the 405/73/55 freeways is nearby, which makes commuting a breeze. The homes in this community are Mediterranean in style and feature 3-4 bedrooms, over 2000 sf, and private yards. The lot sizes, while not huge, are meant for a low-maintenance lifestyle but tend to be larger than many of the new construction home lots today. There is a small playground/picnic area near the entrance to the community and the low HOA of just $90/month makes this an extremely attractive community for anyone seeking the privacy of a gated community.
