Shore Cliffs, located in the heart of Corona del Mar, with winding coral tree lined streets and distinctive and artful homes, is indisputably one of the most beautiful and coveted neighborhoods in coastal Orange County. Boasting private gated access to two spectacular beaches, the approximate 140 owners who are fortunate to call this community their home enjoy the benefits of a relaxed natural environment combined with the convenience of a walkable neighborhood, small-town village setting. It’s a short and easy stroll to the “downtown” area of Corona del Mar with its wide array of shopping, restaurants, bars and entertainment. World class destinations Fashion Island and South Coast Plaza are minutes away by car and close-by John Wayne airport connects to the rest of the world!
Shore Cliffs was originally established in the 1940s and in recent years many homes have been torn down and rebuilt. It is increasingly rare to find development “tear-down” or “fixer” homes opportunities within the community. Rarer still, are properties that extend down into the natural canyons. On Evening Canyon Road, in particular, canyon located properties that extend down towards the ocean from the location of 237 Evening Canyon Road, all of which have been rebuilt in recent years, command prices in excess of $10 million plus.
With its property lines extending down into the approximate center of the creek bed at the base of the natural coastal canyon, Buck Gully, the property lot at 237 Evening Canyon Road is reported by the tax assessor map at over 18,400 square feet. This is the first and closest lot to the ocean on the canyon side of Evening Canyon Road where the CC&Rs of the community allow for the development of a 2 story above grade, 24’ above grade height level home. Ocean views from a proposed second story and roof top deck will not be obstructed by future development of neighboring homes. The property falls under the Coastal Exclusion Zone which makes parameters for the development of the site clear and streamlined.
The canyon setting of this property with its abundant wildlife is alive with sounds of birds, frogs and other wildlife competing with a background symphony of the ocean close surf. Gated beach access to Little Corona del Mar State beach with its tide pools, rock outcroppings and spectacular diving and snorkeling, is seven homes away from the property.
You will not want to miss this opportunity to make Shore Cliffs your home and to create your ideal residence to treasure for a lifetime!
