When you start to look for a condo in HB to purchase, don’t settle.
Odds are you will take a 30 year mortgage, so only buy a property you truly want.
Portofino Cove is a gated community of 17 single family homes and 60 condominiums in the Huntington Harbour area.
The community was built in 1985 and is found in Northwest Huntington Beach in the 92649 zip code.
If you want to live near the beach in a quiet and luxury area then consider these options.
Living here allows residents access to PCH, 405 and 22 freeway for great commute access.
And Sunset beach is close by, which is an amazing local beach town without all the hotels and retail of Downtown HB.
Portofino Cove has a wide variety of floor plans for people considering to buy a unit here.
Choices include both single family properties and condo living.
The condo units range from a 1 bedroom, 1 bath options with about 898 square feet-
to a 2 bedroom, 2 bath option with almost 1177 square feet.
Consider 1 bedroom units with a spacious kitchen and lots of cabinetry.
Also enjoy an open floor plan with a living/dining room combination with water views overlooking the Main Channel and Huntington Harbour.
The master suite has a beautiful en-suite bath that includes a spa tub, separate shower, double vanity, and large walk-in closet to safely keep all your clothes.
These 2 bedroom units are similar to the one bedroom option with a spacious kitchen with an island, and overall good flow.
If you have kids (or are planning on it) then a 2 bd condo might not be big enough as your family grows.
If your budget allows and you need more space, consider buying a 3 bedroom condominium in HB.
The single family homes are detached and range in square footage from about 2814 square feet to 3200 sf.
Options include a 3 bedroom, 3.5 bathrooms or a 4 bedroom, 3.5 bathroom set up.
These Huntington Beach homes also offer a large brick patio and some include an indoor sauna.
While the exteriors of the units are nothing to brag about, the interiors are great.
Some features in these homes include:
The finishes in the homes include –
The homes include an attached two car garage and condominium units include 2 covered parking spaces.
Highlight is the single family homes include a private 45’ boat dock –hard to find.
Portofino Cove has two monthly homeowner’s association fees.
Fees range depending on the size and model of the home and are about $300/$375 per month and $115/$125 a month.
The monthly fees cover the gated grounds, community pool and spa, sauna and fire insurance.
Home buyers here also get a large outdoor BBQ area with an area for guests, and a clean sauna.
All properties at Portofino Cove offer a water view of Huntington Harbour and/or Main Channel.
My favorite feature is the 3rd level penthouse condos with a pool and Huntington Harbour views.
