Oxnard is a wonderful Southern Californian community that offers its residents the best of many worlds. There’s the incredible beach lifestyle that comes with living next to the Pacific Ocean, the warm, year-round sun ideal for all sorts of outdoor activities, and Oxnard’s convenient location between Los Angeles and Santa Barbara.
Oxnard has a population of about 208,000, making it just the right size for comfortable living with many options for dining, shopping, entertainment, and culture. People who want to live on the waterfront have many choices, ranging from oceanside beaches to the expansive Channel Islands Harbor, which is lined with terrific homes and has marinas for small watercraft. The city has views of the Channel Islands National Park and the Channel Islands National Marine Sanctuary, which is just a few miles offshore.
Waterfront living in Oxnard is extremely popular. Buyers interested in Oxnard Shores real estate should hire a real estate agent like Ann Howarth, who has several years of experience helping clients find incredible oceanside estates. Transactions for these high-end properties can be more complex than for inland homes, so having a knowledgeable agent is a must.
Among Oxnard’s major beaches are Silver Strand, Hollywood, Oxnard-Mandalay, and Hobie Beach. When shopping for waterfront estates, consider whether you prefer oceanfront or harborside living and what your favorite activities are — boating, swimming, kayaking, and standup paddleboarding all have different needs. Here’s a look at some of the Oxnard waterfront estates currently on the market:
