Description: Newport Beach was the most expensive city on Coldwell Banker's list, based on the average home price for a 4-bedroom/2-bath house in a good neighborhood.

Newport Beach definitely qualifies as a good neighborhood, with its miles of beautiful beaches. This very pretty, modern house is just a few miles from ocean, plus it features a quarter-acre lot with patio, fire pit, lush lawn and great views.
