A total of 12 new residential neighborhoods (featuring 42 different model homes) have been unveiled to the public at Esencia, a new view-oriented hillside village of approximately 890 acres in the acclaimed 23,000-acre South Orange County planned community of Rancho Mission Viejo.
Ultimately envisioned to encompass a total of more than 2,800 attached and detached homes and apartments, the village of Esencia (Spanish translation: the essence) will provide homes for all ages and life stages including non-gated "Gavilan" neighborhoods of primarily single-story homes for homebuyers age 55+.
While Gavilan residents will enjoy exclusive access to some amenities, a long list of shared recreational amenities will also offer inter-generational opportunities as all residents of Esencia come together based on interest and ability versus being segregated by age.
"What is evident at Esencia is the evolution of true inter-generational community living on The Ranch," said Paul Johnson, Sr. Vice President of Community Development for Rancho Mission Viejo, LLC, stewards of Rancho Mission Viejo and community master planners/developers.
"Throughout Esencia, we’ve removed the gates that separate the ages. Instead of clustering all of the Gavilan neighborhoods together, we’ve spread them throughout the village. And, we’ve created a diversity of inviting recreational and social spaces to be shared by both ‘all age’ and ‘active adult’ residents so residents can choose to become as connected and integrated as they desire."
Currently priced from the high $400,000's to over $1 million, the collection of 12 neighborhoods at Esencia on The Ranch feature eight neighborhoods for "all age" homebuyers and four Gavilan neighborhoods exclusive to the 55+ crowd.
