Pelican Point in Newport Coast offers a unique location since it's the only Newport Coast community located on the ocean front.  The homes situated on the front row are not located directly on the sand since a small stretch of the Pelican Hill golf course sits directly in front of these homes.  Technically, these are golf and ocean front homes with the ocean and sandy beach located approximately 50 feet away from these oceanfront homes.  Since the community itself is very small very few homes on "Pelican Point Drive" ever come on the market for sale.  In total, there are 7 homes that directly face the ocean on the front row.

One of these 7 homes is currently on the market and listed for sale for $15,995,000.  42 Pelican Point Dr is a four bedroom, six
