If you’re looking for a custom luxury home that has stunning views of the harbor and ocean, Lantern Bay Estates is the community to look at. This Dana Point, California neighborhood, is extremely popular for its prime coastal location.
The Lantern Bay Estates are guard gated and comprised of 45 homes. Built on the bluffs, it gives residents wonderful panoramic views of the ocean and valley. Those estates that were built on the bluff’s front row command a higher price and are very desirable. The larger homes have at least five bedrooms. Yachting enthusiasts love this community, which is under a five minute walk to the Dana Point Harbor, where there are over 1,400 slips that can accommodate vessels up to 85 feet in length.
This neighborhood is served by the Capistrano Unified School District, which offers facilities like Richard Henry Dana Elementary School as well as highly ranked Marco Forster Middle School and Dana Hills High School which is one of the region’s oldest. There are also several private schools in this city, such as Broderick Montessori School, Gloria Del Lutheran Preschool, Dana Montessori, and Rossmoor Children’s Center.
Residents in Lantern Bay Estates are within walking distance to the Heritage Park by private entrance. It’s also close to the beaches, restaurants, and merchants like Ralph’s and Bank of America. You’ll find some of the finest dining in the harbor, just a block away.
The City of Dana Point is popular for its surfing, and has one of the only harbors in Orange County. It was named after Richard Henry Dana, Jr. who wrote Two Years Before the Mast, describing this area as the “only romantic spot on the coast.” The harbor celebrates a deep history and features a replica of the Pilgrim, Dana’s ship. And today this is a California Historical Landmark.
