About 2674 Elden Avenue:
This renovated community is comprised of 5 detached homes. It's the first community in Orange County, I'm aware of, with it's own private community garden where each resident will have space to grow their own food or flowers. Many sustainable practices and materials were used to renovate the homes as well as new Energy Star® and energy efficient applicances.

Excellent East-side Costa Mesa location within walking or short bicycle ride to Public Transit, OCC, Vanguard University, Newport Beach Back Bay, Del Mar Community Garden, The LAB & The CAMP.

Water conservation goes hand in hand with going green. Especially in Southern California, with our current abundance of sun and (sometimes) paucity of local water resources, there is a new way to help be a part of the conservation movement at large - conserve at home. Conserve in your yard, and save water. Cyber-Rain is a new, smart sprinkler controller system. It responds to your environment, to regulate the amount of water being fed to your lawn. Check out more information about this great new water-saving product at www.cyber-rain.com and blog.cyber-rain.com for information and fun tips.
