Stake your claim in Westside Costa Mesa’s burgeoning Canyon Park neighborhood. You’ve seen all the fixers and homes on busy streets, so now come and see this stylishly remodeled and expanded home on a quiet “horseshoe” street that’s quickly becoming one of the most charming nooks in this desirable pocket neighborhood. The kitchen has been opened up to the living room with an entertainer’s dream over-sized quartz countertop, and features open upper shelves and a subway tile backsplash.

The adjacent mud-room is great for pets, or could double as a pantry. There’s even a dedicated dining area, a rarity in these homes. Originally all 1 bathroom homes, this “Freedom Home” benefits from a second remodeled bathroom, creating rare en-suite privacy. Newer windows, french doors, and floors mean the heavy lifting has already been done, so simply pack up and move right in.

The rear yard has been professionally landscaped with strawberry and olive trees, native grasses, a bocce ball court, and there are raised planter beds for your home-grown vegetables, along with a potting shed. The bougainvillea-covered pergola is the perfect setting for an outdoor meal. A detached 2 car garage has been insulated and finished, creating a great flex-space that could work for home theater, music studio, home office, or whatever your imagination allows. With laundry currently in the garage, there’s water, gas, and drain lines in place to convert the garage to an ADU, or open it up further to create an additional outdoor dining room? The enclosed front yard captures precious additional space for gatherings and playtime, and the west-facing wood deck is the perfect spot to take in the coastal breezes and sunsets.

You’re a short stroll away from 2145, El Ranchito, and Moon Goat, or you can ride through the neighborhood to Semi-Tropic Wines or catch a show at the Wayfarer. With Canyon Park a few blocks away, you can jog, hike, or walk the dog nearby, or bike to the beach without hitting a busy street. Come and see 2128 Union and experience westside Costa Mesa’s charm firsthand.
