Homes here were built in the 1980s and 1990s, during Redwood Shores’ greatest period of sustained growth. Lighthouse Cove real estate includes four single-family home subdivisions (Bridgeport, Governor’s Bay and Sandpiper Lagoon and, across the lagoon, Laguna Pointe) and two multi-unit developments (Regatta and Ventana del Mar). It’s difficult to offer a summation of Lighthouse Cove homes for sale, because it includes some of Redwood Shores’ most inexpensive homes and some of its most exclusive.
Lighthouse Cove real estate also comes in a variety of shapes, sizes, colors and facades. Bridgeport, 110 single-family homes located across Redwood Shores Parkway from Sandpiper Elementary School, opted for a Cape Cod look for its three- and four-bedroom, 2,000 to 2,600 square-foot homes. These properties, which were built in 1989, have gained favor among homebuyers and now sell for $1.3 million all the way up to $1.8 million.
Newer homes at Governor’s Bay, located next-door to Lighthouse Cove, are elegant and imposing, a collection of four-bedroom, three-bath homes built in 1994, fanned out around a central green. Governor’s Bay homes are big, with as much as 3,200 square feet of space, and have of late been commanding sale prices in the mid-$1 millions and can range all the way up to slightly over $2 million. Like the properties at Lighthouse Cove, they have access to the Bay Trail as it runs along Steinberger Slough at the southern border of Redwood Shores.
South of Bridgeport is Sandpiper Lagoon, another 134 homes built in 1988, some with water views. These properties have a similar cottage look to those at Bridgeport, and have three to five bedrooms and 1,863 to 2,590 square feet of space. The complex includes a pool, spa and a community barbecue area, one reason why Sandpiper Lagoon homes, which have always sold at the top of the Redwood Shores market, now sell for north of $1.5 million, with waterfront properties ranging up to $2.2 million.
Across Redwood Shores Parkway from these three single-family developments is Regatta, 124 waterfront townhomes with two to three bedrooms and 1,500 to almost 2,000 square feet of space. Regatta is a luxury complex, built in 1989, where units can sell for as much as $1.3 to $1.4 million. Ventana Del mar, whose 224 units are a mix of condominiums and townhomes, is Lighthouse Cove’s only island community. It was built in 1996-97 and its one- to three-bedroom units all have wide water views.
Laguna Pointe, located on the other side of Redwood Shores Lagoon, completes Lighthouse Cove. Here you will find very large, waterfront homes (the development added interior waterways to supplement its lagoon frontage) that can sell for slightly over $2 million. Built in 1997, Laguna Pointe homes have three or four bedrooms, two-point-five or three baths and 2,530 to 2,855 square feet of living space.To view a detailed google map of the Lighthouse Cove neighborhood, click here.
