Costa Mesa is a residential, Orange County city that is situated between Huntington Beach to the north and Newport Beach to the south. Numerous people groups such as the Tongva Native Americans, Spanish and Mexicans occupied the fertile area before it was annexed by the United States after the Mexican-American War in 1848. All of the groups used Costa Mesa’s agricultural products to sustain themselves and improve the economic prosperity of the region prior to the city’s official incorporation in 1953.
During World War II, Costa Mesa was home to a key army training base, and many veterans decided to establish roots in the city after the war ended. Costa Mesa’s balmy, Mediterranean climate and its close proximity to gainful employment and pristine beaches in neighboring cities such as Huntington Beach caused a huge population boom there during the late 1950s and early 1960s. Today, many of Costa Mesa’s affluent residents still commute to cities like Irvine and Huntington Beach for work and return home to a city that operates at a much more leisurely pace.

When tourists visit the beaches at places like Newport Beach, Huntington Beach and tiny Balboa Island, they eventually make their way to Costa Mesa for the ultimate shopping experience. The city is home to the famed South Coast Plaza mall, which is considered by many to be an international shopping destination. The mall contains famous, upscale brands such as Fendi, Oscar de la Renta, Armani Exchange and Tiffany & Co. The Lab, which stands for Little American Business, is a genial backlash against all the big-name designer stores that are found at popular South Coast Plaza. At The Lab, shoppers peruse boutique stores in a fun indoor-outdoor setting, and the unique “mall” supports local small businesses. Costa Mesa is also known as a center of excellence for the arts in Orange County. Its Segerstorm Center for the Arts contains a concert hall, opera house, theater, cafes and much more to keep its patrons entertained throughout the year. Locals and visitors can also catch new as well as classic plays at Costa Mesa’s South Coast Repertory.
Visitors who love Costa Mesa’s amenities and unique atmosphere are often on the look-out for residential real estate in the area. While the city contains homes that reflect a diversity of architectural styles that range from traditional ranches to two-story, contemporary designs, some people find the character of vintage homes to be most appealing. Many of those older Mediterranean villas and Spanish Mission Revival homes are adorned with intricately crafted iron doors, window coverings and patio gates that enhance the architectural detail of those structures.
Costa Mesa residents and visitors can find one of the largest selections of traditional and contemporary iron door designs in the state at Pinky’s Iron Doors. Our ironwork artisans can even craft custom doors for special orders. Our customers can have their luxury iron doors delivered to anywhere in the United States after placing their orders through our user-friendly, online ordering platform.
