1936 Galaxy Drive
This sprawling, "front row," single-level, fairly original condition, Spanish Hacienda style home has the "bragging rights" of being the first house built on Galaxy Drive. These astute original homeowners selected this site for its "jaw dropping" spectacular, panoramic and endless views of the back bay, nature preserve, and city lights of Newport Harbor and Fashion Island. The home itself features nicely proportioned rooms with a large living room with a fireplace, a waterside master suite, formal dining room, wetbar, kitchen with informal dining, a family room with a fireplace, three bedrooms with ensuite baths, laundry room and a detached 3-car garage. Outside there is a courtyard swimming pool and a large patio and view deck. Residents enjoy use of the Dover Shores Homeowner's Beaches and have access to numerous walking paths that wind around the community to the Back Bay nature preserve and nearby Castaways Park, or for exploring the local waterways from the Newport Aquatic Center. Opportunities abound, live in the existing home "as-is," remodel, or tear down and build the house of your dreams. Available for the first time in over 55 years, here is your opportunity to purchase a bit of Dover Shores history.
